Contest Comments are Up

As of yesterday, I completed comments on all 57 contest entries. So much great work! I found wonderful elements in every one.

For those of you who have requested constructive comments privately, they will be coming over the next day or so.

Lastly, look for a new serial story starting here on Friday called, "The Field." A man becomes obsessed with an abandoned industrial field in the middle of the inner city. Stolen cars are dumped in the high grass, and scruffy trees shadow dirt roads. It's a perfect place, tucked in the midst of crime and poverty. He knows that bodies must be buried there.

Great news, Jason! Looking forward to your next story, especially as it sounds like a genre you haven't approached yet, am I right?

Anthony J. Rapino said...

Thanks for the comments. Look forward to the serial story.

I really dunno how you did it with the contest. Thanks for putting so much effort into it. That's exactly why it works so well.

Looking forward to Friday.

Jaye Wells said...

You're a champ, Jason.

Bailey Stewart said...

All right! New story starts Friday, I can't wait.

Anne, yes, it will probably be the most mainstream story I've done yet. I'm impressed, my friend! Then again, you've been here since the beginning. You know, that deserves a prize or something....

Anthony, you're very welcome! I'm saving a front row seat for you.

Beady, :) You're another one I love writing for.

Flood, I kind of have a system now. I just click into contest mode and get it done. ;)

Jaye, thanks! I'm glad we're not just crossing paths on other blogs anymore. =)

Bailey, it feels good to get back into it. It's been a little while since the last one. I hope I manage to deliver. ;)

I appreciate the time you took to do this too Jason. Really. What a monumental effort.

Excellent!

I am so impressed with all the work you did on the contest Jason
especially after it is finished going back and leaving comments on each post. Outstanding!
I too am looking forward to your next offering.

Again, great contest, great entries and thanks for the comments on my work. FYI, the August's Promise picture you just posted has tweaked my fantasy and I'm attempting to work up a short story (contest or not) I'll let you know if anything takes form.

Thanks again Jason. I'm looking forward to the next one.

jason evans said...

Scott, it's my privilege. I'm happy to be the host.

JLB, :D

Anna, it's just my way of showing my appreciation for the effort that everyone put in. Thank you for the kind words!

Robert, please! I'd love to see anything that comes of the picture. You're always welcome to use these pictures as a jumping point.

Jamie, much appreciated, my friend.
