I am extremely happy with the story turnout. What that means is likely there were double that who may have at least – started a story, but didn’t post. And triple that, who considered writing – because they had an idea. Basically, this started a snowball of creativity and we should all be delighted.
If you have a story written, please post it. You missed this round of voting. But if enough entries come, we could have a second round of voting for just the late stuff. Regardless, all posted stories are valued so don’t be afraid to share your creativity. The hard deadline to post is Jan 15th. After that, you will have to just wait for the next contest, which will be at the end of the month.
Thank you to all the story writers who posted. You are deeply appreciated! Hopefully next time we see some more of our regular writers involved and some of the old IO’s board writers as well. Let’s start this new year with a bang!
Preview (next contest)
The Naughty & Nice Contest. No restrictions. Other than you have to declare your story as either Naughty or Nice. The scoring (voting) will be aligned to either the Dark side or the Light side. One element will be combined votes for each team. Another will be just the top three stories. Will the Dark side win the war but not the most important battle? (first place) Or will one side take all? I think the dark side has an unfair advantage, but I also think a brilliant writer could do a surprising upset for the good guys.
