Almost "average"

Final result: "In Defense of Flash Fiction", my essay for the "Why I Write" contest over at Editor Unleashed, finished with 27 votes and a score of 2.89, a bit below "Average".

This result puts me near the bottom of the field. I'd hoped to do better, but as of this writing, the essay got 559 views. Even if I assume that 70% (well, OK, 85%) of the people who read it think that I'm a no-talent hack (or worse), that still leaves a hundred people on the good side. That kind of exposure is a decent enough ROI for this contest.

Scoring/ranking by the community is part of the judging process. Winners will be announced later this week.

I offer my congratulations to the eventual winner, the runners-up and to everyone who participated.
