Congratulations!! Now the nail biting begins. The eight finalists stories are now being judged by 4 of our judges. Names not to be divulged at this point for obvious reasons. Also, do not blab around which story belongs to which writer above. If you know the name of the story that one of the above wrote, don't blab it around. If you are wondering why, it is because this contest is anonymous. The judges do not know who wrote the stories they are reading and if they do know, they cannot judge the quarter.
So at this stage, celebrate the contestant, yell through the hilltops that you, or your friend or writing buddy is a FINALIST, but don't say for what story please.
Again, Congratulations to all of you. And everyone should be on their next story already, if not done!
