I believe the competition is to honour our friend Dirty Martini even in (tongue in cheek) comment of your 420 stories/poems here LarryF.

From what I am reading, this competition to honor the legacy of Dirtymartini is a complete success. So many wonderful stories by so many wonderful authors. I am humbled to be amongst all of you.

Very nicely done Maggie, Molly, Gillian, Anna, anybody I forgot? If so, my apologies.

You left out Mr. Rumple deWriter, and it was his gentle nudge that got this thing off the ground. icon_smile

I agree about the entries so far. I’m very pleased and impressed by the creativity of our members!

Well, there ya' go... once again my best intentions took a left turn into the outhouse.

My sincerest apologies to another blue and red icon... Mr. Rumple deWriter.

I suppose all hope is gone now for a T-shirt from the Honkytonk and Cyber Bar.

I can't take any credit for this, Larry. I was away on holiday when it happened. icon_smile

After nine days, there are 20 stories entered in the competition, and the quality of them is stellar, in my opinion.

Nine more days to go, if I can count correctly... so there's still time for another 20 stories to be written and entered.

just sayin'...

Great graphic!

Remind me, please, the deadline is the 8th. Does that mean when the 7th ticks over to the 8th? Seems to me that is it but I can never recall.

I *think* this is how it works: The deadline is 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on Oct. 7th, so it’s showing up as Oct. 7th for me but Oct. 8th for you.

Just had a thought about the award of the winner of DirtyMartini badge. I wonder if it would make more sense to break this up by Poetry and Story. Meaning, have one for each. Poems and Stories are two different things after all.

Maybe call one the DirtyMartini Poem badge and one the DirtyMartini Story badge. Since Alan wrote in both and the comp started out as a story competition. Just a thought.

There some great poems entered into this comp as well but they could still receive the Story badge and that would leave the Poem badge for another comp maybe. There are so many great poets on here, I am sure the comp would be flooded with poems.

Thanks for your suggestion, Jim. We may very well be awarding more than one DM badge, and we'll be sure to get the wording on the badge description changed so it doesn't specify it as a poetry contest.

Tick tock, folks!

The deadline for the Stories Space Dirty Martini 420 competition is only about 36 hours away!

There’s still plenty of time to submit an entry — but time for procrastination is running short.
