The voting ends Wednesday afternoon for all the sub. Then, voting begins for the top 10, sorry to say, I haven't gotten enough votes to make it into the top ten.

Is Tuesday afternoon too late to review your chapter? That's my first chance I'll be able to give my undivided attention to it...

I'm assuming you mean next Tuesday as your post is Wednesday at 6pm. Voting is over this round for me, cause I didn't make the top ten...again.
Not really sure that it is even worth posting #6. Most everyone is getting ten times the amount of people rating their chapters than I. Even if I were any good, it is very doubtful that any of the judges would ever see it.

Thanks anyway :smash: oh, an I'm taking back my I.O.U.!

:rofl: just kidding Blick...if I do decide to enter round #6, I'd appreciate the rating.

Darn! But at least you're getting practice at HAVING to produce by a certain time. So...um...how about changing the names and a bit more, and using it as the basis for a NANORIMO or WT's novel write?

okay...but I sure posted. Now I probably won't remember the MARVELLOUS review I gave :D In fact it was too long and it made me shorten it.

How did you know where to look? I've never seen anyone else's comment on there. Tonight I tried again and it told me I wasn't authorized. Finally, it let me in and showed me someone else's story to vote on. I know it wasn't Bess'. So I didn't vote, lol.

do a search for author on "bess", and it gives the chapters she's got there under the username bessndillon. Intead of clicking on the chapter, in that box is a link to the comments.

Those coments were for chapter's 4 & 5, #6 will not show up in that place till the winner is chosen. It did show up though Mlou, in my fanlit page and it was very nice of you to compliment my writing so...marvellously. :D Thanks for your coments on chapters 4&5 Blick. I can use all the support I can get. Btw...did you ever enter a chapter? There are a lot of men in the competition because the prizes are so great. :rock:

Pity...I like the way you write...you just might have been able to do something with this. You know, it doesn't matter which genre you write in almost always there is a love interest for the leading man.
Some of the best romances i've read, had very little to do with sex, but everything to do with passion and love. :naughtygrin:
So, when it starts up again, come on over!

I do have a "romantic" story I'm working on called "Star Crossed." Which involces a mix-up by the company that'll name stars for you for a fee. A man and a woman who've never met each have the same star named for them and one must give it up due to the mix-up.

Hmmm...sounds intriguing! You'll have to think up the circumstance whereby a company would have the right to name stars...usually reserved for the astronomer who finds it, or something, isn't it?
