Hey Guys, I gave things some more thought and the first post flashed through my mind. I did say the post with the most comments would win. Although I did not contemplate the turn of events, still I said the post with the most comments would win. Also one of the writers commented today and pointed out that he/she wasn't even aware that there was a prize or anything like that. This was a light-bulb moment and helped me arrive at this decision.
Ruth went the extra mile to increase the comments on her story and this act in itself is admirable, as is the effort she put into it. So I've decided we wouldn't vote anymore and give the prize to the winner. And that winner is RUTHYLICIOUS.
*Ruth please send me your account details in the morning.*
*If you had promised anything to Ruthylicious this does not stop you from fulfilling it so please mail me if you need her email address.*
*To all the writers I sincerely applaud you guys, some of your stories either had us thinking deeply or laughing heartily, ultimately they brought us joy and gave us something to look forward to. Thanks a lot and I hope you had fun writing too.*
Thelma Thinks readers please don't stop writing. I guess it's pretty clear that although reading is becoming a dying culture (most of) the people on this blog do like to read. Besides fictions and short stories, if there's stuff you'd like to get off your chest and have no one else to talk to, put it in writing and air it all out. It can be very freeing and exhilarating. Give it a try.
Thanks once again. CONGRATS TO RUTHYLICIOUS.
My apologies for the previous confusion, it was done with the best intentions in mind.
Hey guys, this is good night from me. I'm about sinking into my sheets with my lover (le ipad; I have some reading to do) two bags of popcorn and a big bottle of water. I don't intend to get off my feet till morning.
