Only six entries so far and there are five prizes ranging from 6,000 ATS points to 250 ATS points.At this rate it looks like most of you will get a prize.

But there are just over two weeks to go and the nearer the competition closing date (end of this month) aproaches the more entries we receive generally.

So, plenty of time to get your entries in.

Kudos, Jonna. Your stories were excellent, and I'm pleased to have been awarded 4th place - or "honourary silver", as I like to think of it


Congratulations to all who took part, it was a great pleasure reading the wide variety of submissions.

Have I learned anything? For my next story, less philosophy, more sex and violence.

So I come on line to see what the damage is. Girl friend acting all excited, "Did you win, did you win!" I'm stoicly scrolling up and down thinking that I can't find the results so I probably didn't even score. And then I see them.

HOLY !!!!

Some of you know me better then others, but I have been writing all my life with almost no praise and thus very little confidence in my ability to write. Over the past four or five years I have not seen the point in writing anything at all (even though it feels as if it is my life blood) and so have done few things that have ever seen the light of day.

My girlfriend dared me that if I was to win this contest I would get up off my nihilistic ass and do something that actually made me happy. Seeing that this conglomeration of short stories seemed to cause such a stir, I have decided to continue into novel form and peddle it to underground publishers.

I am not very good at displaying emotions, but I guess what I mean to say...is that whatever happens...thanks. I have a bit of hope again. Regardless of what happens...today is better then yesterday.

I respect everyone that has put their words to the world here and their heart on the line. I do understand how difficult it is to express yourselves at times and I bow to the talent before me.

HOORAY!!!!!!!

You get to those publishers and you get that confidence and if I don't see your novel in my shop in a few years when it opens I'll be pissed! hahahahhahahahah! But really now, if you get anything published, get a box full and cart them down to Florida.

COngrats guys!
