Winner Flash Fiction #38
« on: December 29, 2011, 09:55:59 AM »
The winner in a very close contest is: boshman

with No. 15 The Christmas Party (#4)

2nd place: 16. In Consideration of Services Rendered

and sharing 3rd place:

4. The Most Wonderful Time of the Year    
5. The Christmas Party (#1)

It was a great contest -- won by a single vote, with everyone close to each other. Thank you everyone who entered, I really enjoyed reading the different takes on the theme. Maybe it's the time of year, but wish there had been more votes cast.

Congratulations boshman and all the other entrants.  Over to you now. ;) ;) ;)

Congratulations, Boshman. Who's stories came in 2nd and 3rd?

Mine sucks with only 3 votes, but I had a lot of fun writing it. I don't normally laugh when I write one of my stories.  ;)

Congratulations, Boshman.

We'll look forward to what you have in store for the next Flash Fiction. I'll take responsibility for #16.

Way to go, Boshman!  And Joe, I know yours didn't suck because none of them did.  It was difficult deciding where to cast my three votes  :)

Joe:

First, congratulations to Boshman and Don; I voted for both. The voters got it right this time, as my Christmas Story #1 tied for third place which is the second time that's happened. I'll keep trying; maybe I need a twisty ending. ;)

Good job, Boshman.  :)

Congrats to all for sharing your stories.

I'll fess up to "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year."

Merry Christmas and thanks for the comments.

Just a shame that more people are not interested in voting.

So here comes number 39...
