    Hi Ho! I got it so wrong! I missed the 100 word thing. Argh! Looking forward to some scary reads!!!!


  2. What is the right way to vote? I don’t know if just clicking on the stars is good enough?


    • brigitsflame says:

      Just as you would to rate something on a retail website, click on the highest star you would like to rate the story. The row of stars beneath the link is for that story. Even though I set it up, this confused me when I was voting.
      I apologize, it was our first time using this feature.

    Comment on “The House” – Very scary (I tried using my LJ info to comment on the story but the site this author uses just kept telling me I had ‘illegal’ characters and wouldn’t post it.)

      We will pass it along 🙂

      It’s all those illeagal ‘F’s and ‘A’s, not to mention your rather impertinent ‘W’.

      Open ID does not appear to run smoothly for everyone. Darlinleo has been having trouble commenting on your dreamwidth posts and she had trouble with the same post as you.

      Thank you for popping in to read and vote 🙂


  4. I am so excited to see our two newest writers in the mini! Welcome, Melanie DeWitt and MeganReedWrites! Methinks Brigit’s Flame is going to boom this November 🙂

    rigit’s Flame is a comepetitve, online, writing community that originated on live journal in 2008. We hold monthly contests for bragging rights that are structured around writing for one prompt per week for four weeks. Winners are voted upon by the community and advance to the following week’s competition. Each week’s prompt is unique, so in order to win you must submit four winning stories in a single month. We also sustain the community via daily chatter posts sparked by one of our mods. Anyone is free to comment and join the conversation. All writing you share with us should be accessible by your peers regardless of site registrations. Come check us out on Brigits Flame LiveJournal Community or Brigits Flame Facebook Community.
