Welcome to the one and only real Winter Contest support thread.

Don't be fooled by fake contests and fake awards.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Is that all you people think about around here?

(I think I just channeled my Irish great grandmother.)

Off to Parent-Teacher Conferences. Three as the parent, the rest as the teacher. I need a glass of wine already!

That is one fast donkey to outrun chariots.

The heteros out there could think of it being Mary riding Eddie--using the Christmas version.

(And now you have me listening to Eddie's interesting monologue as that's happening. )

at 6am I had 22 votes and a score of 4.68. Now I have 150 votes and a score of 4.41. Interesting. One comment and one favorite. I kind of figured this was going to be a love it or hate it type story.

Similar start here, but with a fraction of the votes your story is getting.

I think my Halloween story fared better outside of the contest. The one for this contest appears in an anthology publishing in December, so I wanted to get it posted more quickly than the general story file provides.

Don’t know if I ever told you, but you were the first person I “met” on Lit. You invited me into Molly’s thread and made me feel at home. I really appreciated that. You also prolly know more about the “doings” of our family than just about anybody else on Lit. That’s cuz you care and are appreciated for being you.--posthumous message from Safe_Bet. And I still care and I still love her. Rest in the Light, Suzy.

I think the trolls got a lesson in the last contest. Maybe they will not waste their time on this one.

Educable trolls? I have a hard time accepting that but it would be nice. I'll keep that happy thought in mind.

Is it just me, or is there a slow start to this contest?

There seem to be only a few entries so far.

The Halloween contest started off slow too--and this one might have been affected by the failure to formally announce it until the day before it started.

NaNo has a lot to do with it also.

I'm using the impetus of NaNo to write my entry. 14,000 words of it so far, plus 3,700 as jeanne_d_artois = 17,700.

But I'm only using the idea of NaNo, not officially signing up this year.

Some people use the favorites list for a bookmark so they can find it and read it later.

Yeah, and then they unfavorite later, which can't help but be deflating, even when you understand why it's happening.

Not only did she hold the stories, but she also made sure that they were out last of all the ones published on 11-11. (I know because I had a story out on the same day, and I noticed all the Winter Holiday titles sitting together at the top of the New Stories list.) So that was a good deed for all the contest participants and very fair and proper too.

Good luck to all of you from the cold North

The contest stories are always put at the head of the New list. It's one of the perqs of being in the contest.
