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!
