Oooh. So many great stories to choose from. If there was ever a time for writers to "scratch each others' backs" it would be now!

I am with Barry. People let me know what stories they had published online with at least 1000 words. (I only had one story that fit that description)

I've been making a note of stories I really enjoyed during 2009, but did't do that for 2008 - doh! - so I'm going to have to get my brain in gear.

Catherine J Gardner said...

YAY! I've chosen mine.

Natalie L. Sin said...

So many stories I loved, but I knew which one I wanted to vote for : ) I hope I did it right!

Ooh, I like the idea of making a list of favorite short stories of the year. Man, there are way too many good stories out there to narrow it down....

I've been looking through the comments list on the competition site - am I missing something? I don't see Cate ot Nat's name anywhere.

Is there somewhere else I'm supposed to see this?

Catherine J Gardner said...

Good choice, Natalie. I went for a little tale called 'Losing face in Kwai Chung.' :)

Katey, we have excellent taste. :)

KC, I know. My 2009 list is growing quite long.

BT, we both nominated people in the readers list. We are there.
