I wish there were 'I Voted' stickers.

It's been a few weeks and I was afraid I wouldn't remember the stories enough to vote on them without revisiting them all.  It turns out, some of them really stuck in my brainmatter and I suddenly realized, those are the ones that might be most worthy of my votes.  Good turnout of good stories!

5 days left for semifinal voting!  Get your votes in! :)
I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

The Final Round Poll is up!

You know, I let people change their votes in the other polls, because I like to change my mind a lot, especially after discussion.  I might have just missed a theme or was too hasty on my first impressions of a story, so I like being able to change my vote.  I didn't think that such a feature would be used to change votes to vote for a winning story.  That seems pretty pointless to me...

Shrug.  The final round has no such allowance.  Minds should be made up by this point.  Choose your votes carefully.  :)

I may love these contests too much.
I already have my entries ready for PodCastle's contest

I need to write my Podcastle entry.  I have a story in mind, but it has yet to find paper/keyboard

Do we have educated guesses about what the word limit will be?

I was actually going to start a petition to set the word count for the podcastle contest back up to 750. I get that setting it at 500 makes it easier for everyone to read that many stories, but how many stories in this contest have comment after comment about how they suffered from the lower word count? I, for one, vote for a limit of 750 like Escapepod's. (This opinion has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that I already have two stories written for the Podcastle contest that currently weigh in at 750  :P)

Yeah, I'm voting for 750 as well... although, imagine an epic fantasy 750 word short story.
I see your 750 and raise it to 1000.
