First, before I get into the reviews, I want to thank everybody who has voted in the Blank Page Awards! We’re in a tiebreaker round now that will end on Friday, so if you could please go vote in that and help me untie the handful of ties, I would really appreciate it.
And now… the reviews! I think I set some sort of record this month. All but two of the stories I actually reviewed are different from the ones on the list I posted last month. Thanks to missing chapters, missing content and stories that just weren’t complete like I thought they were, a lot of things had to change. On the plus side, an Anthem era story I’ve been loving was finished and…
HansonFiction.com is archived again! I didn’t review any stories from there this month, but I did add a few back into my overall plan. I’ve had a few questions here about how to access those old stories, and I’m happy to say that the links I’ve provided to them do work again!
Okay. With the good news out of the way, here’s the list of stories I actually reviewed this month:
And up for review next month…
And with my reviews done for now, it’s time for me to dive back into NaNoWriMo. See you in December!
Yes, it is! And that means a couple things:
One, you have just a few days left to get your vote in for the Blank Page Awards. If you haven’t voted yet, go do it now!!
Two, it’s NaNoWriMo time and new review time, so I’m going to be very, very busy for the next few weeks.
And three, it’s new spotlight time. My picks for this month are:
So check those out, vote in the awards, and if you’re participating in NaNo too… good luck!
Well, as usual, I had to make a few little changes to my review plan, thanks to the issue I mentioned before with HansonFiction.com. But the reviews went fairly well, and here are the stories I ended up with this month:
And unless things have to change again, the stories for next month are…:
I’ve also updated my Reading List to reflect the changes I’ve had to make to my schedule and list a few new and upcoming stories I’m reading or will be reading.
And don’t forget to head over to the Blank Page Awards to get your nominations in! I’m going to post a list of the nominees in progress today, and there’s just under a week left until nominations close.
Yes, folks, it’s that time of year! The Blank Page Awards are open again for the Fall 2014 round. You can visit the site now, check out the rules and categories, and send in your nominations.
There are so many great stories out there that deserve acknowledgement and awards. Why not help those stories out and give them some love?
Somehow, I forgot to post about the spotlights yesterday, although they are up. And they are as follows:
Three other notes before I end this:
One, you may have noticed that all links to sites previously located at HansonFiction.com do not work. A spam site has taken over that domain name and prevented it from being archived by the Wayback Machine. For now, I’m leaving these links up all over the site, out of sheer stubbornness and the hope that the spam site will go away and these old sites can be archived once again. Along those lines, I’ve added a few more old links to the directory–and a couple new ones!
Two, I’ve got some new content in progress for the site that I think might interest some of the nerds (like me). More on that soon!
And lastly, the Blank Page Awards are starting up again in just four days. Get your nominations ready, because I want to make this round even better than the last!
