Well, we're a books and writing forum, after all, so I think that explains the initial enthusiasm for this competition.
Perhaps those who are ahead in the voting now are beginning to think about next month's theme, should the choice be theirs. It would be nice if we could start a little earlier, so that everyone has plenty of time to write their stories ... on the other other hand, I'm sure it will take some time to think up a great theme.
