Yeah Nick's poem was good. That bit about, when the fever ends ...

Real cool.

Got a question. Can I nominate a piece that's more than one thread long?

Of course you could nominate as much pieces as you like, but remember that in the end there will we a vote and only one piece can win.
So nominating all 15 parts of a whole story, posted in as many threads, has little sense, since only one of those can win the vote and be published.

I would suggest to nominate the first part and if that should win MC, the other parts will be found by those who want to read the whole work.

I'd like to nominate "12 stormy Hours" by Pheonix Lazarus. I'm nominating the conclusion. Here's a link.

http://www.writersbeat.com/showthread.php?t=39113

The reason I went with the conclusion is, I felt people would still be taken on a crazy journy, with two different twists, and they could always go back and read the rest if you guys linked it.

Where if I nominated the first part, I feel some readers may get bored with it and not get the big pay off. Although, not nearly as much.

I think you could read only the conclusion and still get the pay off.

Why this piece? Pheonix is an extreamly good story teller. He understands story structure. And the world that this guy writes in is really well thought out.

Gotta nominate Pheonix Lazarus' "Helpful Harry's Five."

It's the best thing I've ever read here on Writersbeat, and that's saying something.

Gotta also nominate "Didn't I kill you?" by Boy Howdy ...

Great piece, featuring two really great characters. It's a twisted tale, packed with drama. Really fun read.
