JUST FOLLOW THE LINKS TO ALL THE STORIES (which are listed below), AND YOU WILL FIND EACH STORY IN TURN.

********************************

The deadline for entries into the February 2016 Creative Writing Competition passed at Midnight on the 31st. of March.

The topic for the stories was set by the winner of the January 2015 competition, FIZZEERASCAL,  who chose the topic ‘CLEUDO’

Fizzie commented as follows ..
“I have been clearing out the loft and spare room recently – a slow process as I am taken down memory lane… Amongst the clutter are many board games we have enjoyed over the years – one that makes me smile is Cluedo. I would like to propose the theme for March: Incorporate one or more of the characters into a story of any genre. Miss Scarlet, Professor Plum, Mrs Peacock, Mr Green, Colonel Mustard, & Mrs White.etc.”

Thank you to all the writers who have entered a story, and thanks in advance to all those readers on the MyT site who I hope will now support the competition by reading the stories and registering their vote in the form of a comment below on this post.

*************************************************************************

As in previous months, when voting it would help if voters would make sure to quote the name of the story when posting their vote.

Voting can now commence and will continue until 11 p.m. on SUNDAY the 10th. of April 2016.

There are no restrictions as to who is allowed to vote, all that is asked is that the voter reads all the stories and votes according to their preference. A brief reason for your choice is welcome but not mandatory.

Voters are requested to vote 5 points for first place, 3 points for second, and 1 point for third place.
Please do not submit any other point combinations such as 3/3/3, 4/4/1, 5/2/2, etc.

Writers are requested not to vote for any of their own entries. There will be no detailed summaries posted as to how the voting is progressing throughout the voting period but as soon as possible after voting closes a tabulated list of results will be posted separately and the winner declared.

*************************************************************

PLEASE DO NOT COMMENT AT LENGTH ABOUT THE STORIES OR RECORD ANY THOUGHTS THAT YOU MAY HAVE ON THEM, UNTIL AFTER VOTING CLOSES.

IF YOU WISH TO DESCRIBE IN DETAIL THE REASONS FOR YOUR CHOICES, OR COMMENT AT LENGTH ABOUT SOME OR ALL OF THE INDIVIDUAL STORIES, A SEPARATE PAGE WILL BE SET UP AT THE END OF THE VOTING PERIOD AND AFTER THE RESULT HAS BEEN POSTED.
