Thanks so much, Alchemist. I'm really pleased by the popularity of this short story, so much so that I don't particularly care if I win or not; I'm just happy that numerous people enjoyed it enough to vote for it.

Re: Discussion thread -- Three Hundred Word Writing Challenge #3

Add my name to the list of those under the weather.
The doctor told me I have " a cute sinusitis".
Don't think it was meant as a compliment.

Thanks hopewrites, Moonbat, and springs (one of the resident arachnophobes!) for the votes!

Re: Discussion thread -- Three Hundred Word Writing Challenge #3

Hope you feel better soon, SP, get yourself dosed up.

You're very welcome for the vote, it was the one - how to put it? - I couldn't get out of my mind! Plus when I read it again, I enjoyed it just as much.

I forgot to say earlier, when I put my votes up, thanks DustyZebra! And thanks Aun Doorback too. I've now smashed my best 300 word performance record.

Hey, thanks for the vote, Starbeast. Much appreciated. Clearly, your taste is questionable.

Seriously though, thank you.

Re: Discussion thread -- Three Hundred Word Writing Challenge #3

Thanks for the mentions and Springs1971 for the vote. Sorry but I can't help you out with a spiderfree visa either. This time of year it's like holidaymakers getting their towels out on the poolside chairs, everyone's scrambling about for the best real estate, they're friendly though .

Re: Discussion thread -- Three Hundred Word Writing Challenge #3

Aun, thanks for the vote very much appreciated!

Quokka; at least I know when NOT to visit now! Is there any time of the year when they, like, go to sleep I keep thinking one day I'll write a travel guide for arachnophobes; when and where to visit, but I couldn't do the research, evidently

Re: Discussion thread -- Three Hundred Word Writing Challenge #3

Cast my votes (came into town just to do that, plus get a few groceries)

Honourable Mentions go to The Spurring Platty, Hex, Boneman and The Judge. It was so difficult to decide, the quality of the submissions being so good. Even those not getting HMs showed some exceptional quality. However, ultimately I plumped for (in no particular order):

Talysia
Aun Doorback
Perpetual Man

Thanks for the vote Aun Doorback! That's two more than I had hoped so really happy at that.

Phoenisthewriter
Paranoid Marvin
Starbeast
Quokka
*Boneman*
*TDZ*
The Judge
*Teresa Edgerton*

Re: Discussion -- 300 Word Challenge #3

I think we might be looking at a tiebreak here, which is going to be really hard for all us voters.
