is over (woot! I made it!), and now I need to pick the stories that have earned the little purple star in my journal index
(and maybe get some feedbax on my writing besides). The poll is unavoidably huge, so I'll try to keep the rest of this post short.Please feel free to answer even if you haven't read every single one of the stories
. Please also don't feel rushed, if you want to take a few days to browse through the interesting-looking ones. It's a reader's choice poll, after all. You're the readers. ];=8)
I would love to have more detailed feedback in post comments. Anyway, thank y'all for reading.
