And then… the winner is!!!

Alright Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the award ceremony this night… After counting 25 votes I have here a clear winner and 2 awesome runners-up. So without killing you with the suspense I’ll disclose the results:

This was the most discussed write-up in the contest and it presented a chick and revengeful Liz which was loved by most, specially the ladies… Put your hands together for our  Second Runner-up Minstrel Incognito for A Second Shot – Minstrel Incognito will take away today this beautiful trophy and a runner-up certificate:






Moving on to a twist that is bound to touch the heart of every Indian and is the most discussed event in India (not counting the IN-AU cricket match today 😛 )  Though the author took the scene far away from where it started the scene swept the readers off their feet. Give a huge round of applause to First Runner-up Pallavi Sambamoorthy for A Game of Shame & Revenge – Pallavi will take away the silver trophy and a runner-up certificate:






And now ladies and gentlemen the write-up that changed the whole picture of the main character – Liz and declared her a Kleptomaniac, this post was enjoyed by most and was even considered informative by some… give it up for our WinnerGunjal Bhansali for The Flight of Death – Gunjal takes away the Gold Trophy, a Winner’s Certificate and a Rs1000 Gift Voucher from Landmark (sponsored by me not Landmark – mind it!!!)





Congratulations to all winners and participants!!! 😀 😀 😀

I will email all the prizes to you all in the next couple days. Every participant gets a certificate. 😀

Welcome to the And then… contest!!

You think the name is weird, don’t you? Its simple, I am giving you a scene for which you have to say “and then…” and tell me what happened… Here’s the scene on which you have to build on an episode… It’s fun, give it a shot coz you could be the winner, each contestant can send up to 3 entries and there are exciting prizes up for grabs 😀

Ok now before you get started check out the rules for the contest you’ll also see some hints

So without further ado here’s the scene…

Image courtsey Google

Liz ran like she was being chased by a cheetah from the check-in point to the boarding gate to catch her flight from Hong Kong to Sydney, and her high healed Jimmy Choo stilettoes didn’t help. Business class she thought ironically to herself clumsily running with her macbook close to her chest and a carry-over Louis Vuitton purse clinging on her shoulder. The past few months had been erratic – late night calls, working weekends, high pressure presentations, the stress was all consuming and she had almost lost track of time but that’s the cost you pay to be the youngest director with a multinational entertainment giant. Today she was determined she would run and get there for she deserved this vacation she had earned it, though her 30yr old un-exercised body was resisting.

She finally reached the gate and was escorted to the airplane. She was the last one to board and after bumping into a stewardess dropping her LV once and almost tripping into the lap of an old but handsome man she finally reached her seat. She glanced at the man sitting just behind her – engrossed in the latest issue of Autocar, Bose head-phones plugged in, he was in his own sweet world, her heart skipped a beat and she froze – all the old memories came rushing in.

Check out the stories published so far and leave feedback for the best thing an author can get from readers is honest feedback 😀
