Re: February/March 2013 Challenge Voting Thread

Two very excellent entries this month; congrats and thanks to both authors for providing such rich reading fare. I was unable to come up with an ending for what would have been my entry, but after reading the other two I realized my idea just wasn't up to snuff. Again, congrats, and looking forward to the next challenge!

Thank you. I hope you will still post what you wrote (after you finish it). It would be nice to see.

I couldn't decide between the two stories. So I rolled a dice.

Baaaah, I misread the closing date for the poll - thought it said the third. Whoops.

I just finished reading them and went to go vote when I saw it was closed. Oh well.

They were both good, though!

Re: February/March 2013 Challenge Voting Thread

Oh, thank you so much!!

I am surprised as I liked your story and I hope you will stick around for more challenges - including my own. I will put it up today, see about getting us back on a monthly schedule.

Thank you to everyone for reading, reviewing and voting. That makes this experience sweet for all of us (I think I can speak for HaventGotALife in that respect).

New challenge is up!

I forgot to put 2013 in the title - is that necessary? If so, I cannot fix it.

Thank you and good luck!
