YOUR TURN!!!!!! 🙀
Fine, fine, I will.
Oh, and I adore the cat emoji.
Hey Laura, want to do us a quick favor and judge this little contest war we have going? 🙂
Emily my friend, care to judge for us real quick?
I don’t believe we’ve officially met, but you’re a pretty active user, and we need someone to judge us. 🙂
You may commence judging at will.December 18, 2021 at 8:56 pm #145942calidris@calidris
@noah-cochran I would love to! Should I give my input now, or should I wait?
*laughs as one fey*December 18, 2021 at 9:19 pm #145943
Oh shoot I forgot about you. Just you specifically, I remembered everyone else.
Am I still a judge? Never mind Im doing it anyway
Yours is definitely a girl.
I could real feel the intense emotion and it definitely wasn’t cliched. However, the style of the writing wasn’t the easiest to read. It was good and I liked where it was going, it just wasn’t the easiest for me to read.
Good job 🙂
Noah- yours was from a boys POV
I liked everything about it. The setting, the pace, and it was <i>beautifully </i>written.
Now for where you messed up because I don’t want to accidentally flatter you
as if telling you you’re more attractive than a gun hasn’t done that already
I liked the emotion you put into it, but it wasn’t very intense. You did really good showing it in only 500ish words but it wasn’t very intense which is the point of the prompt it was there but not completely, or not enough I guess. I would probably say something differently if I new the entire story but I don’t 😜
Grey- yours was also a girl
I do think the emotion was a bit cliche, but I liked where everything was going. It was a little quick, but hey, it’s not like you had moths to brainstorm and a professional editor right with you 😉 but I still really liked it and found it the most interesting of the three which is really saying something because the over two were incredibly interesting and held my attention well.
Now I gotta pick a winner? Uhh… I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. Catapult is a great friend of mine, Noah is really awesome and one of the manliest guys I know (that’s still young) which is amazing, and I don’t know Grey but I so I definitely don’t want to hurt you feelings… Again.
So I’m gonna say who I choose to win but only because Catapult (that’s just your new nickname for no reason whatsoever) will chase of down to the ends of the earth if I don’t (and as a flat earther, I am truly scared of that happening)
So I’m going to choose Noah as the winner even though I loved them all. His was just really well written and I am so curious to see what was going on in his head as he wrote it

Sure. @k-a-grey should be directing you not me, but they seem to have vanished. xD
This is what you’re supposed to do according to Grey:
So some things for the judge(s)to keep in mind…
Try to guess what the main character’s gender was
Did the emotion feel authentic or cliched?
How was the quality of the prose?
The judge(s) can then vote on who wrote the best piece based on the prompt and also provide feedback/critique.
So I suppose you should guess each character’s gender, give your overall thoughts, and then select your favorite (cast your vote essentially).December 18, 2021 at 9:31 pm #145945
Oh, and I would recommend you don’t read the other judge’s posts until after you post your judgement/vote. Just a recommendation, this system is kinda whacky. xD I’ll read all y’all’s judgement’s/votes after all of you have posted them.December 18, 2021 at 9:50 pm #145946
@noah-cochran Sorry about that! but yeah, you did a good job explaining, thank you. Yeah, this system isn’t perfect, but it’s our first prompt battle, so there’s room for improvement. If any has a better idea, please share😁
@erynne Thanks for being a gracious judge. Don’t worry about hurting my feelings, I appreciate constructive criticism😉 It’s kinda ironic that the emotion seemed a bit cliched though, since I’m a female myself. 😂 But I was wavering between writing from the opposite gender, or my own, since I think I tend to suppress my own emotionsDecember 18, 2021 at 10:01 pm #145947
Also, if none of the other judges reply by tomorrow night, are you okay with just Erynne and Calidris’ decisions? Assuming they pick the same person. If not, maybe the two contestants can do a quick tiebreaker with a new prompt.
Anyway, I thought that the winner could create prompt #2, and then up to five people can join.December 18, 2021 at 10:06 pm #145948

No problem, and yeah, the system is fine, it’s just kinda difficult to do blind voting when the judges can see each other’s posts. But it’s not a big deal.

Sure, that’s good with me. 🙂

That would probably be fine if we have to (a third judge to tiebreak would be better), but if I’m one of the tied ones, I might just be cranking out some little 200 word thing or something. xDDecember 18, 2021 at 10:24 pm #145949
(I know you haven’t read my judgement yet)
WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU AUTOMATICALLY ASSUME YOU’RE ONE OF THE CHOSEN??

Thanks for the invite, @Noah-cochran. If you still need a judge, I would do it. I won’t be doing it until Monday, though, if that makes a difference. If you don’t need me just say so. 🙂 There are 3 submissions?

@emily-waldorf You can still be a judge if you’d like! Yep, three submissions — mine, Noah’s, and Cathy’s. They’re all on page 2.December 19, 2021 at 2:11 pm #145963
