Me neither... In fact, I've given up waiting for a certain portion of the judging panel to get back to me with their choices.
Instead, I went with the 'portion' that DID get back to me. One thing for sure, it was much easier than if all the judges had come back with
different picks. Usually, that's where I come in to try to reach some sort of consensus (but it certainly wasn't required in this case).
So when is the next contest?
Likely for hallowe'en. I'll start the contest in late August, to be ended by (and the winners picked for) October 31.
I propose a 2-month contest and 1000 words as a minimum (no maximum).
One thing for sure... I already have 1 judge who has volunteered for the next contest and am looking for at least 4 others, preferably those who have
writer status, but if any do not come through with their choices
in a reasonable amount of time, then we might have to re-think writing
ALL the stories were excellent, btw, and I enjoyed reading them. I wish all participants could be 1st Place Winners, but, then again, it wouldn't be
much of a contest, would it?
