    So about 100 more votes to go-if everyone votes-I'm going for more tums!

    I've decided there is too much pressure for me to keep checking in on this. I'm going to try and not even look at the results - at all. My palms are so sweaty I'm sure my laptop may explode and take off my face if I drop in here on a daily basis.

    Before that happens, in the famous line from Fame, "This is where we start paying back... in sweat!"

    All the best everyone.

    I just voted and the stories were excellent the second time through. It was a very tough decision. Congratulations to all of you, crop creamers!

    Sorry, I wasn't trying to come off as snotty there or anything. I just figured that one group had 65 until the last couple of days, so to me that meant 65ish people had read every story, or at least close to that, who could place a vote very quickly. Of course I didn't add in the people that didn't read any of the 1st round, and might vote this round because it's less to read or discount the people that have left the competition. We'll see, but I hope its a good turn out with 3 great stories rising to the top.

    I read all the stories again and placed my vote this morning. IMHO everyone of these stories are worthy of publication and it was a difficult choice. Best of luck to all the "winners" competing in the finals.

    Don't worry you weren't. The only reason I was pointing how many there where is so that people aren't surprised if it gets that high. I know there where an awful lot of people waiting for the final round to read the stories because of the sheer volume of the first round. Most of the CD staff included.

    I still need to finish reading them all again. In that first round, too many stories started blending together, reading them one after another. This time I printed them out, so getting a fresher look.

    Congrats to the finalists! These stories are great! I certainly hope that there is another chance in the future for more story contests.

    Just an FYI for the contestants in this round. If by chance it happens to end in a tie, the CD staff will be the official tie breaker.

    Yup, right about to print out the stories so I can go over them in detail.

    I'd be happy to, Draven. Flattered that you asked.

    All the stories are very good and it was a very hard decision but I finally narrowed it down to 3 choices. The only problem, I liked the 3 stories equally but I can only chose one and I lost my 3 sided coin last week so what do I do. Eenie meenie minie mo. No. One potato, two potato. No.
    Then I had it.

    My mother and your mother were washing clothes,
    My mother punched your mother right in the nose.
    What color was her blood?

    Found this a fitting way to choose.

    well actually I read the 3 stories one more time and finally picked one.

    Good luck to all the finalists

    I voted yesterday.

    It would be nice for the finalists if all 125 eligible voters cast a ballot asap. It would likely save some nerves and stomach linings.

    Best wishes to all of you.

    It's a tight race so far! Someone is going to win by a severed tongue for sure.

    The 125 eligible is only a rough estimate. That number could go up as the week goes on, as it's based off of a minimum post count, then the forum automatically promotes you to a new usergroup when you reach that level. I'm not going to say what the count is, but it'll be pretty obvious if people are spamming posts just to up their count.

    Hi Dan,

    I’m just wondering if that estimate includes the initial 110 contest participants, or is it just the number of non-junior members.
