Prose That Blows

Prose that Blows 5 – THE RESULTS

Posted in Uncategorized by doubleintegral on April 2, 2011

The voting for this contest was unprecedented, not necessarily in the overall turnout but in how spread out the voting was.  That tells me that there were a lot of really good stories and they all deserve recognition, and almost all of the margins were very close.

As always, here’s the list of who wrote what.  You can find the contest results after the jump.

“According to Plan” – TheRedWasp
“An Alternative to Smoking” – InvizKing
“The C. Plenty Building Incident” – Dr. Bo
“The Factory” – The Unknown
“Handle” – yrralldlok2
“More Maxine” – Inflate123
“Neighbours” – heliumgirl77
“Outbreak” – T-Danger
“A Poor Choice of Words” – Luther Kane

    Omagod, I can’t believe I did so well; this was the best-est Prose-that-blows ever and there were so many good stories that deserved it more than mine, I really, truly, voted for Rathani, personally, because it was a story that made me feel warm and spoke to me about things I had to learn a long time ago…

    And of course Stiff Upper Lip made me laugh out loud as much has Poor Choice…but there were so many good stories, congrats to everyone and especial thanks to the organisers for all their effort!
