    Haven't checked in in a few days...how is everyone holding up? Looks like Draven Ames and CW Lasart are going to have a sudden death match for the 3rd spot...

    Yes, I also thank not only those who have voted for my story but those who have had nothing but a positive attitude, period. Win or lose, this contest was exactly what I needed to start taking myself and my writing a little more seriously, and I'm sincerely grateful for the opportunity.

    WOW! With one day left, this contest is hating up for a good finale. Good luck to you all in the home stretch. Hope you see the checkered flag.

    Approaching Turn 4. The Wings of a Fly is still buzzing along. And Monotonous Dr. Johnson's Patient is now trying to put on some Meat Socks, but still isn't able to catch them. In fourth Rudy Jenkins Buries His (13) Fears. And it looks like the Dark Caller has hung up.

    But on the serious side, all of you guys and gals did great work and should be very proud of your performance no matter where you finish. Hey, all 11 are already certified winners.

    Oh my, what a race. And I echo what Terry had to say. Hope you all have some fingernails left after this one.

    You are lucky to be working. I'm stuck at home. Nerves are so bad that I feel like hurling. I'd sleep through today if I could, but I've been tossing and turning all night. We bought a new memory foam for our bed, but it doesn't seem to be helping my bulging disk. I'm going to do my best not to check the polls every minute.

    I wasn't even this nervous when I jumped out of airplanes in the Army.

    Wow this is close, and was a toss up between a couple on what I would vote for, but did end up voting sometime yesterday, don't remember when though. Whoever ends up being in the top 3 definitely deserve it, as do others who won't make it in those spots

    You know, I'm gonna put my opinion to CD right here, right now. These are all very short works. Can't they have room for 4 stories instead of only 3? (Wait, what's the title again? Did the winning title use "3" or "trio"?) If it isn't already built into the title of the chapbook, have both stories tied for 3rd in the book (if it stays that way). Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That would be nice, but I believe they said, in the event of a tie, that CD would make the final choice. We'll see, but I doubt it will end in a tie. There are a lot of voters left.

    Wow, this poll is so close I feel sympathetic anxiousness on the participant's behalf.
