The short story contest will end tomorow and sometime in the coming week the winners will be announced. As writers we can do something NOW to help each other out and not waste the resources we have at hand.

If you still have a WATS vote then use it to vote for your favorite story that has been entered in the contest. It's called supporting your community and we need to hang together on this. Tomorrow is the last day of the month and come Monday your WATS awards start over.

Lets make a statement. Choose a story and give it your WATS.

Love and light,

Wupy

Changed title to well you know....explain it.

Well, I guess I'm out of luck here.


Honorary WATS?

Yeah, everyone, I concur. I've given one to Wupy for the idea, and another one to my favorite contestant.

Well, elligible contestant. Intrepid, your lust for power will be the end of you.

I think this is a great idea. WATS votes are usually for a well thought out post, why not give your favorite story a WATS vote


But if you guys don't mind, I think this needs to be in Board Business, especially for those who don't subscribe or visit our forum.

That's a great idea....


I rarely use my WATS, and it never even occured to me to use them for the short stories.

So here's one for mrwupy for the great idea:


You have voted mrwupy for the Way Above Top Secret award. You have one more vote left for this month.

And I still have one left for my favourite short story. I have one more day to read them and decide which I like best. You are all excellent writers, so this could be a tough decision..........

Good suggestion, mrwupy.


Could you please post the link? That would be very helpful.

Here's the list of all the entries
www.abovetopsecret.com...

all entries are topped with a little green arrow and include (STBSS) in the title. Even if you don't give someone your WATS, i think what all of our writers crave is a little feedback

And a reminder, the contest ends tomorrow 7/31/05 at 12pm EASTERN time.

Thanx Worldwatcher.


Much more people will now see it.

And it's going to you for a great idea. Next month I'll do some reading in short stories and see what it's all about.


You have voted mrwupy for the Way Above Top Secret award. You have used all of your votes for this month.

Thanks for changing the title WW, A bit of clarity was in order. All I can say is I layed by the pool all day, soaking up the sun, splashing in the water, talking with the pretty girls and drinking lots of beer. My mind was more then a bit muddled when I signed online. (not that i'm complaining)

I used my last WATS right after I posted this. I thought it was a good entry and wish the author luck in the contest.

I also want to thank those who appreciated the idea. I think we should save atleast one WATS and use it at the end of every contest, just to support each other.

Love and light,

Wupy

The last thing we need is another dog in this hunt....dear lord we have 50 stories going.....this is soooo coool.

The writing community is taking shape, slowly but surely. I thank my creator for WorldWatcher, since it's only began since she took over.

I'm ready for the next competition

Nope, same story, at least 2 more parts. I might have to put in some overtime.

Hey, overtime pays time and a half, lets just hope the judges look at it that way.


I've been looking at what i've entered and I doubt i'll take 50th place. Still, it was never about winning, it was about keeping my muses from beating me. I really enjoyed this.

I wish great luck to all that entered.

This is a great idea. Give those hard-working writers recognition. And don't forget the power of a nice u2u sent when you especially like something!

And, if you're feeling jolly and have an extra vote, check out the debate tournament. There be some mighty fine posts in there as well...

Such a GOOD idea I went and did it!
Now I have no more WATS to give......I gave all 3 to writers! For I had done this a couple weeks ago on a couple of short storys.......thanks for reminding me I had another!
