    Hi... thanks for voting in the 2015 Annual Short Story Competition finals.
    I submitted one of my stories "Happy Endings" into the contest.

    Critiques here on litnet have always been greatly helpful and helped me improve a lot. As you have already read the story, I was wondering if you could share your thoughts on the story on this thread->

    Sorry to bother you. Thanks for reading the message.
  2. OK, I've read them and also now voted. Sorry, I misunderstood what it was all about!

    You don't need to be familiar... We read them and vote for the one we like best... They are new stories written for this competition only.

  4. Thanks for the reminder, Scheherazade, but oh dear, I am not familiar with any of them, so I won't be voting.
