[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Well, other than the rolls being entirely raw in the middle, it was a pretty good Thanksgiving. My dad even complimented my scalloped sweet potatoes. Although it’s hard not to like a vegetable made mostly of sugar, drowned in cream, and sprinkled with brown sugar, y’know?
Speaking of things we like, just like every Friday, I’m going to give you the results of the popular vote on all three of our grids – nonfiction, fiction|poetry, and microfiction – right here!
If you’re just dropping by to kill holiday time, I want to let you know that it’s not all about the popular vote. Most weeks, we have our editorial staff picks to hand out. Every week our editors comb through your submissions looking for their favorites. Picks are based on writing quality, how successful the author is in conveying information, and just plain style. If you got a staff pick this week, grab your badge from the sidebar and wear it with pride!
Keep scrolling down to check out who won the popular vote on all three grids. If you earned the highest number of votes in any challenge, you are this week’s crowd favorite! If you came in first, second or third, you get “top three” honors. Grab your badge from our sidebar!
Looking for your badge? The fiction|poetry, nonfiction and microstories challenges all have the same winner, staff pick, and top three badges. It doesn’t clutter up our sidebar, and they’ll still look pretty on yours![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][vc_column_text]If you’re lost in the middle of the grid and wondering how you can get a little more feedback on your posts, check out our membership perks!
Everybody: before you go, please take some time to leave your favorites a little love in the comments.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
Weekend moonshine grid opens today at 6 p.m. eastern time
Look. U.S. writers. I know you. You’re hiding in the bathroom checking your cell phones and wondering how long until you can escape the bedroom that still has that Tiger Beat poster of JTT on the ceiling. Everyone else, you’re wondering what the fuss is. Why don’t we all meet down on the moonshine grid for a little eggnog and commiseration (that can be the name of our holiday-themed indie band, right?) when it opens at 6pm today? Bring whatever posts survived the Black Friday sale. Just leave the commercial posts behind. They’re not the reason for the season. (That would be axial tilt.)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
Congratulations to the crowd favorites at yeah write #241
The thumbnails are now sorted in order of most votes to fewest. Ties in the overall number of votes are broken by number of editor votes.
Congratulations if you’re at or near the top! Writing well is hard work, and we’re honored you’ve chosen us this week to showcase your entry.
If you’re at or near the bottom, don’t be discouraged. You’re in the right community for learning and growing as a writer, and we are always available with resources for those who ask nicely.
To our readers and voters: thank you! See you next week.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
