Edited to add: Except for the list of entries and the gratefulness for the people quoted here (check them out!) the dates and voting system have changed. For more information click here.
That's it folks! The winner will be announced on July 15th, so stay tunned! ;)
We had 37 entries to the contest, so I think I can call it a success? heh
Thank you everyone for your awesome entries, for all the tweets and shout outs, and for your hilarious zombie-talk.
A special thanks for these people who kindly helped spreading the word about the contest in their own special way:
>> Anne Tyler Lord, of Don't Fence Me In, for featuring the contest on her weekly writing news, the Coffee Klatch.
>> Roland D. Yeomans, of Writing in the Crosshairs, for being such a gentleman and spreading the word about the contest on his blog. Roland, I forgot your twitter name! *head on desk* Please tell me on the comments (or elsewhere) so I can add a link? :)
>> Jason Warden, of Experimental Muse, and Shane Benavides, of I Amuse Me, for being such good sports. :)
Soo, I had much fun, but it's time to get me and Randomities back to life.
"What? You can't undo death!" you say.
Of course I can't!
However, since I know some very powerful wizards -- who you'll get to know on the zombie dragon series ;) -- I've asked them to work on a potion or spell to help out on my condition. These guys are good!
I took the potion just after midnight GMT (as per instructions) and after some weird stuff happened all my limbs are perfectly attached again and I can actually breathe! Hurra! heh
See how Randomities got its looks back? The wizards said that unzombifying Randomities was much easier than making my concotion. *grinz*
Now that I'm alive again and I can think better, it's time to get to work on judging the entries.
Hey, why don't you help me out?
I've mentioned that there'd be an honorable mention published here at Randomities, right? Tell me which is your favorite entry and influence the judges opinion on the honorable mention!
Since I really want to know your opinion, the pool will be up until July 14th, midnight EST. There are so many good stories that you can vote for more than one entry. ;)
