First of all, thanks to Doodle for running the December One-shot Story Contest in my stead, and congrats to Hero for winning it! The winning story was Snow Angel, and I can guarantee it'll make you cry. Secondly, yes, my holiday is over. To be honest, it was quite liberating to not be on the Internet all the time. I considered making the change permanent, but for better or for worse, I suppose I'm needed here.
Now, onto due business. 2014 is upon us, as is the January One-shot Contest. In view of the fact that the beginning of a new year is supposed to be happy (on that subject, why was the theme Melancholy for the Christmas season?) the theme of this contest is: Birth.
No, not necessarily that kind of birth, more like the creation of new things and ideas. You can, as usual, interpret it however you want. The deadline is January 30th.
I'd like at least two judges besides myself, but I imagine I'll be doing the judging myself. Sigh :(
It's lonely at the top. (Lol)
