Smut Marathon 2019: Results round 3

The third round assignment was tough. Really tough. Writing a story of only 200 words where at least 150 of those 200 words have to be dialogue, is not easy. Writers had to be careful not to fall into ‘meaningless’ talk, but use the words in the dialogue to tell the story. Dialogue is always meant to move the story forward, and if the spoken words used in the story doesn’t benefit the story in some or other way, it’s better to leave it out.

That said, I have an announcement to make. Due to personal circumstances, I had to do replace one of the judges. For the remainder of the Smut Marathon 2019 Brigit Delaney will replace Jaime Mortimer. I am forever grateful that Brigit has been able to step in within seconds. More to follow during the coming week.

For now it’s time to get on to the results for the third round, which is, as you know, not an elimination round. Not sure on which rounds are elimination rounds? See the rules.

Public vote

During the voting round I keep track of all the votes, and when I see irregularities or strange patterns, I take action. The action can either be a warning to a writer, the elimination of a vote or the disqualification of a writer. I do give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but will not tolerate any cheating. Please note that the rules clearly say: one vote per person.

That said, let’s get down to the result of the public vote.

In total 100 legitimate votes have been received (you can see the voting in the images below).

Winner of the public vote: Jayne Renault with Active Observers
First runner up: Chloe Sheila with Confession Booth
Second runner up (tie): Jade Greene with Fulfilling Her Fantasy and Ian Jade with Lost At Si

Knocked out

This has not been a knockout round, but where 70 writers received the assignment, only 63 sent in their stories. The fourth round though, is a knockout round. Only 60 writers will go through to the fifth round, but in the event that less than 60 writers send in their assignments, all writers will go through to the next round.

Next assignment

Thank you to everyone who have written for this round and thank you to all the voters who have taken the time to read the entries, to vote and for those who have given feedback. I know this has been a difficult round for everyone involved!

The writers will be sent the fourth assignment later today and have until midnight CET (Amsterdam time) on 24 April 2019 to have it in my inbox (see the countdown in the sidebar).

The next voting round opens on 28 April 2019 and I would love to see a lot of voters then!
