    2006 Short Story Competition Final

    Throughout the year, there have never been a shortage of good, engaging stories to take part in the competition. I would like to thank everyone for their contributions both as entrants and voters. However, as the end of the year approaches, we have our finalists and during the next two months, we will be voting to decide the winner!

    Please vote for the story you like best to be the winner of Literature Network 2006 Shorty Story Competition!

    Discussion of the stories are not allowed, not to influence the outcome of the poll.

    If those of you who have submitted a short story have any questions, you can email us at [email protected] instead of asking them on here!

    Please note that the authors agree to keep their identities secret when they enter the competition. Those who breach this rule will be disqualified automatically.

    Here are the stories:

    Erg, I knew I was going to miss the last one! I've just been much, much too busy lately...but I will try to make some time for this final round since it's less stories...

    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    This poll is open for two months so I am hoping that everyone will have enough time to read the stories and vote!

    Yes everyone, do vote! Give the finalists a chance!
    "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed." Romans 10:9-11

    Really? They made it to the finals, didn't they? Some of us found them quite interesting and well written. That is why we chose them as our final four!

    I've narrowed it down to my favorite two, but I'm really stuck. I don't want a coin flip to determine who I think should win ...I'm going to have to sit on it for a lil while. I hope I have time to vote before it all ends!

    added later: well, all that thought seems to have been for little effect, lol. At least my other choiuce is not lacking in votes!

    Now this is what I like to see. No story will go without at least one vote this round. If the stories have made it to the finals, then some one voted for them when they were first posted. So no story should go unnoticed in the finals. A close race should be expected!

    I've always refrained from voting because I am just here to be impartial mod but it makes me sad that there are so few votes right now
