    • So here we go:

      1st Place
      The Findings of Prof. Albert by Robcbh
      Readability: 4.5 * Concept: 3.75 * Atmosphere: 3.75 * Total: 4.0

      2nd Place
      An Examination Of The Estate of Janus McNair By Wilbur Wright by Willowfang
      Readability: 3.0 * Concept: 4.5 * Atmosphere: 3.5 * Total: 4.0


      3d Place
      Ghoul-Steppers by Erebus Dirge
      Readability: 3.75 * Concept: 4.0 * Atmosphere: 3.5 * Total: 3.75

      Robcbh in first place, tho his total score ties with mine, he does have two highs to my one.

      All good stories, lots of neat ideas.

      Next write off will have a dead line of mid October so the stories can be out for Halloween, so the start up for that should be a discussion thread the beginning of August.
      I met her, fifteen years ago; I was told there was nothing left; no reason, no conscience, no understanding; and not even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, of good or evil, right or wrong. I met this cow, with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and the blackest eyes... the devil's eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach her, and then another seven trying to keep her locked up because I realized that what was living behind that cow's eyes was purely and simply... evil.

      • Well done Robch! and Willowfang. Enjoyed taking part in this, though shame there was'nt more entries to make it more interesting. Can't help it would've been nice if more people took the time to read and vote on the stories but I digress. Had a lot of fun writing my one though , I think at least conceptually the weakest of my stories to date in terms of originality. Though my readability score has improved there's still a lot of work to be done.

        • Thanks, you still wrote good tho, just takes one little weak spot if you can call it that to drag a score down, math being what it is.

          Always important to double check and polish everything.

          I was on top of all but my last few paragraphs which dragged my score down some

          • Good job to you two as well. I think there were some great ideas. Its a shame that more people could vote, or more could have submitted, but i guess thats a sign of the times around this forum. Though it stands alone, the story i submitted is actually part of a much greater series which i have been working on. I havent completed much, im hoping to have 7 or stories to this anthology. I'm glad to see that my readability was so high, when i first started these write offs i believe my total readability was like a 2 - "As has been stated, there are multiple structural issues with this piece. Delivery and scene crafting are both solid, but this story needs editing badly. Punctuation errors, tense changes, perspective issues, etc. A thesaurus also could have been very beneficial here. All of these things make it almost impossible to "get lost" and enjoy the story.
            " is what i got for my first score so to see it increase so much makes me feel pretty good. So thanks guys.

            • We got one more story coming actually, my E-mail got hit with a ton of stuff, a lot of it garbled, but the dates are good, sent him an e-mail to resend, so we might have one more in a few days or so.

                  Okay I'm confused, dose that mean that the contest is still open? With the reading period and voting also?

                  • No, it means that some stinkweed slackerass didn't finish his story on time but he wants to put it up on the thread anyway as soon as he finishes it even though the competiton is closed and the winner has been announced.

                    But first he has to finish his story....

                    • Yeah, it's as good as closed really, but Jack is gonna submit a story that we'll put through the motions (so if peeps could read and vote, that'd be great), tho the winner is basically already set in stone.

                      • Hey Guys! Wanted to give you all a heads up that Splatter Shack is having a write-off! Except contest has prizes and decent exposure to the top 3 winners. You Should give it a look! The entry doesn't have to be something written specifically for this contest, and they aren't looking for any sort of rights, other than to post it for the world to see!

                        • Cool, if I find the time maybe I'll see if I can adjust one of my stories to 3k words.

                            Only has to be LESS than 3k words. No need to beef up a story.

                              Yeah, adjust down I mean.

                              Also, as long as I'm here and posting:

                              1st Monday of August, just 5 days away is the start of the Fall discussion on what sort of sentences we want to go with, then the 1st Monday of September begins 6 weeks of writing so we can post the stories just before Halloween

                              • So it's now August which means we got til the 2nd of September when I post our starting sentences to come up with a guiding theme for them or if we what to go with some other idea for them altogether.

                                In the last 2 years, I've gone with a certain emotional sense like Loneliness or Isolation. Before that we've gone with setting up an imagine of sorts, like maybe a old house, empty road, or we could go with a creepy cemetery.

                                If you plan to write something, just say so so I can get an idea of what plans to make.

                                If you have any ideas for the opening scene or sentences, post those too.
