Thanks "Pretty Me" n "Tan" for already posting your stories and helping us making this initiative successful. They have weaved beautiful stories and would like others to follow suit. Would request "Tan" to post the story from his id here and remove it from the comments section. Leave in your email id in the Shoutbox so that we could add you to the family.

Please refrain from posting other stuff apart from the stories for this contest till 25th December, 2008. We will be closing the lounge for general posts/rants during this time period. This is just to ensure that the contributions for this contest dont get lost and people who contribute get maximum support as well as dedicated readership. If anyone does want to notify other lounge members of a new post on their blog, please feel free to use the Shoutbox. We regret the inconvenience caused. We guess it should be a great experience reading different takes on rain. We are just facilitating the same and ensuring that your stories get read. A humble request to all talented writers here on writers lounge to try their hand and churn up a story for contest. Writers Lounge Rocks! And you all make it rock! Cheers!!


  1. so i now mail you the story i posted before ?? or can any one submit more than 1 enteries ??

  2. you can submit as many entries as you want Honey.

    Honestly speaking ste, I wanted it, posting only the competition entries till it lasts, to make sure every post comes in the lime light.

    Thankyou for voicing us Ste, we're proud on you :)

  3. haha.. and you stop being modest Twin, (my calling you twin is vindicated in the other blog but for the sake of readers here i will repeat: Since we lack a nick for sandeep, I have a liking for the word twin, since he is so much like our twin, i think i will like to call him so, which in elaborated meaning will remain Pri's twin! and ours too)

    phew, did i make sense :p ?

  4. Oh Sorry, I just realized that i was signed in with brother's id..

    (talking about the previous post) it was me, yours truly :)

  5. sorry asbah...nobody is allowed to call him twin except me...i have a copyright over that!!

  15. uff guys...i thought all the 16 comments would be discussing about the contest..and here is see the discussion is all about "twin".....uffff...i hardly respond to people when people call me sandeep coz have never been called by that name ever...neither in college nor in school..he was balu all throughout...think the talespin n jungle book popularity went against me....stop the discussion....grrrrrrr....he he ;-)

  16. hahaha! i somehow missed all the fun here :D

    LOL.. SB, till any further change/alteration in your nick. Or as I said it earlier, since you bore the our-exotic-nick-giver crown SB, I can wait till i have it to have my mind working on some nicks :p or that my muse, somehow, returns from it/her excursion !

  17. So, who won? Is it Twin or Twwin or Twinn??

    Stephen seems to lost his own track of nicks for Balu ... He has to decide, if its Twwin or Twinn .. But, I'm hurt that you left the fight in middle ... c'mon ... who wins?

    You people have posted some 300+ posts ... reading all those is practically impossible for me ... I am reading all the posts here - for the contest. It feels good. I have been writing since childhood - but never did I get into such a league of Extra Ordinary Gentlemen (and women). Nice to be here ... Will know you guys closely ... give me some time and your love ... That will do ... :)

  20. Interesting....lemme think n post a decent one soon. All the best to my fellow contestants...

  21. Nice thought :)

    And all the best to the participants and the judges:)

    Hope all of you have a good time.

    God Bless!

  22. Well, Thanks Usha .. But I doubt that the Judges would be having a good time ... with all the posts, and if you read them, you would understand that it is going to be a trying time for the judges!!!

    Watch it ...


Comments are sexy.
