|I would love to keep reading stories by contestants. I'm not into writing as I am into reading. You all make my days go by pretty fast when I read this stuff. I'd like to judge more. More practice =P|
|So are we doing this, then?|
|Trust me, Halloween is my alltime favorite holiday. I would LOVE a story theme for it.|
|That sounds fine. I just meant like a Halloween theme, like a ghost story or something.|
|I would like that, but I would not really be able to run it. I will be on a cruise over Halloween weekend so I couldn't judge til I got back and even then I will be super busy packing. Now, if you guys are cool with the deadline giving me a bit of time to judge and post results when I get back I am all for it. If not, well, nothing says we have to have a competition to post stories here and have people critique them.|
|We should do a Halloween one, that'd be cool.|

Are we still on for this?
I know this is a bump, but the thread is stickied
I would actually like to enter for once. Something for Halloween or Thanksgiving would be fun, too
We could use more activity in here.
The Muses are angered.
|It is fine, I look forward to seeing your next entry.|
|Sorry I never got around to judging, I had a lot going on for the last couple weeks, between starting college and family/social problems...but I'd definitely be game for more writing competitions, and since things should be settling down soon, I'll be able to judge as well as compete...sorry again...|
|sounds great. also an adjustment to the word limit, would be great, and it would allow those new catagories for everyone.|
|I am fine with bi-annual. I was thinking of doing one for New Year's|
|I second that, at least a bi annually competition.|
|Awesome. Everyone who competed was great, and we should take a moment to thank our judges.
I'm thinking we should have more writing competitions.
|Vulkar was kind enough to do the category calculations for me and here they are (well, I did spelling, but it wasn't hard)
Urban Astronaut: 6.333
You all got 10s... I think that is the first time it has happened actually.
Urban Astronaut: 6.5
Urban Astronaut: 5.5
Urban Astronaut: 6
Urban Astronaut: 5.3
|Congrats everyone, if it's held on a yearly basis next year it will be mine!|
And congrats for not coming in second to last, Vulkar xD
|Lord Vulkas Mormonus
|Victory is mine. Why? Because for the first time...I'm not in second to last place!
Maybe I'll dominate later.
|I fail at nap... really need to get this sleep schedule worked out. Anywho, here we go... I am just going to do totals.
AND THE RESULTS ARE.... *drumroll*
1) Cairoi: 53.4
2) Vulkar: 47.3
3) Cityondown: 41.5
4) Urban Astronaut: 40
Congratulations to Cairoi for winning the 2010 XGF Story Competition! I will contact Bitmap about having your prize made and get it to you as soon as it is finished.
A special thanks to everyone that participated, I hope that you will come back next time as either entrant or judge... or both... and we can implement the new ideas.

|*Posting so that you can double post.*
You need to take a shorter nap, xD. The suspense is killing those of us that don't want to calculate the averages ourselves!
|I think some people like description more than others. For example, I blew through the entire Wheel of Time series in less than a year from start to end... well, book ten at least. And I loved the description because it made the world real to me. Same with LotR (start to finish in 2 months, on top of summer classes). And yes, in some cases it can drag on... like a rea world setting, but in fantasy it is good to describe unless it is something identifiable with everyone, like a barn or something.
I am sorry I haven't got the scores up. Work has be opening 5 days a week so sleeping is becoming an issue for me. I swear I will get it done after my nap today.
