Top 100

There was a "quick-tales" competition held by LJ & Caferati for India. Along with 1051 other people, I too submitted my story.

Guess what?

I made it to the long list of "top 100" :D Yippee!

Now, they (judges) will shortlist '10 winners". But. Along with that they are also holding a "most popular story" contest. Now I know that compared to people out there I have barely any readers. But it would be great fun (and ego boost) if you guys who like me and (hopefully) read my stuff go and poll for me after reading the story!

My story is here. The theme was 'Journal'. Ummm..vote pls?

The other stories are put up on the same site - Quick Tales so you can go and read them too.

There seems to be significant competition - what with some writers with awards and all having participated. But getting to the top 100  has been good and I shall keep fingers crossed anyway ;)

PS - In case you dont have a LJ id, it takes a few minutes to get one - you cant poll unless you're a Livejournal user. You dont have to write - but itll be nice if you do get to start a blog here (easier for me to track). Anyway, thanks for your vote and amazing rating!

Digg!

What is a "Flash Fiction" ? I love reading your real life encounters a lot. Like the old man language teacher.

Re: Story
Thanks ^^
Flash Fiction is a 'short' short-story - around 200 words.

I read your story... so interesting! Very imaginative... very you - Botany + fetish for electronic/ gadgets.

Loved it...Why? Because it said so well in so little words that people are wont to some sort of subjugation or other. Balance is what is missing...

But wish you had thrown in an incident...
