Hi Holly,

Welcome.  My first contest was the pseudopod contest last year.  I had a great time.  Just remember, comments can sometimes be robust, but they're meant to help.

Oh, I'm used to critiques so I'm ready to be cut to shreds. Do your worst! I'll do my best to hold back my inner critic and be nicer as well. (Although I do find it hard to ignore passive voice - that's when I get out my shears.)

For my story, the most effective form of criticism I can imagine is votes, lots and lots of votes for it.  Also, tell me that I'm pretty when you comment in the thread. 

It's the only way I'll learn, people.

Ooh, my account still works! Despite the fact that I apparently last posted in the second Flash Fiction Contest in 2010. The Escape Artists forum has a long memory.

I see that I also missed Flash Fiction Contest #3 in the intervening years, which was careless of me. Luckily I caught the tweet about this one.

Anyway, can't wait to get reading and voting again. Good luck to the authors!

Dear Thunderscreech,

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Your story stunk, but you're pretty,
So I voted for you.

 :D :D

Don't listen to Shane.  He is just jealous, and I haven't even made a Lionel Richie joke to go with the Adele joke yet.

You can stoop lower...

At least you're not reciting poetry to Thunderscreech.

I have some lovely works by noted poet Paula Nancy Millstone Jennings of Sussex!

BTW, waking up to new stories is a lovely reason to get out of bed, this is the best part of the whole thing.

WHY ARE WE YELLING?

Oh! 

I think I've got it figured out.  The reason you're upset is....


You're a Pink Floyd fan and you're upset that I mentioned two other musical artists before singing Comfortably Numb.


Hello?  Hello?  Hello?  Is there anybody in there?  Just nod if you can hear me.  Is there anyone at home?


Now we can get along, right?  :)
