Not a Million...

... but close! Well, not close at all, but statistically speaking...

It turns out that that storySouth Million Writers Award won't announce finalists until Feb. 22. There have been 1,200 nominations, so they're still reading through them, I guess. 1,200 is twice as many as last year, so obviously, this little competition has taken off a bit over the last year. That says good things about the Web, as well as marketing. (It was highlighted in USA Today last year, and also has a piece in the 2005 Novel and Short Story Writers Market.

So, odds are I won't make finalist but it's nice to worry about it for an additional week, hahaha.

In other news, I have no news, other than the feeling that I have caught a sudden cold. Getting run down over the past couple weeks was not good to avoid illness.

Is there anything we can do to tip the odds in your favour?

If I'm reading the info right, this is the first stage. The editors pick the "notable" stories, and then there's a vote for the top 10. I don't think there's anything we can do until then, except keep your fingers crossed!

Needless to say, we all wish you luck.

Hee hee... if this is a public vote I may have to lift the mask of anonymity and try to do a full court press for voting...

That seems so evil though!
