Fan Fiction Frenzy Contest!


FAN FICTION FRENZY!
And the Winners Are....

Wow, this was our first contest and we didn't expect all of you to get as involved as you did but you guys were writing stories like it was your JOB!

We had lots of great entries and great turn out from the participating fandoms. We'd like to thank the iCarly, Twilight and Bones fandoms for being involved and so very supportive. Participation is key here at You Write What?! and we're grateful you have all found something here worth participating in.

The entries were all posted and votes tallied so we are pleased to announce the winners.

iCarly Fandom
Winning Author: bandgrad2008
Story: Heartbeat

Twilight Fandom
Winning Author: BellaClary
Story: Don't You Remember

Bones Fandom
Winning Author: dharmamonkey

We wish we had some sort of cool prize to offer (besides bragging rights) but it's not possible right now. But as we get bigger...who knows?!

Thanks again to ALL the writers who participated. We wish you all the best and hope to see you all in our next contest!

Fandom Love & Peace

This is going to be good. Can't wait to jump in.

When will you announce the iCarly winner?

Dear Anonymous,

First, I'd like to start out by introducing myself. I'm Sam, and I'm one of the owners of this blog. I'm writing this to you to hopefully address some of the issues you have with our blog.

It's more likely that you'll read this here than on twitter, and for that I will leave this comment here as well.

First, this is OUR blog. That is something you need to understand. We, as the owners of this blog, decide when things are going to be posted. We have lives outside of here, so sorry that we don't update the page every single day. We're doing the best that we can, and if our best isn't good enough...well whatever.

We promised the HP fandom, but our attempts at finding anybody to participate went ignored. So if you want to be annoyed or angry at anyone, be annoyed and angry at the people in the fandom who chose to ignore our requests. We didn't simply say 'oh, we hate HP let's just skip it.' I, personally, went into the HP fandom, contacted people letting them know about the site and that we were looking for people so we could feature the HP fandom and I even went out of my way to write a one-shot FOR the fandom that included an A/N talking about the blog. We were still ignored. We can't feature a fandom that doesn't want to be featured. Bottom line.

That time that the iCarly fandom was up was the time we were still trying to get in touch with ANYONE from the HP fandom. When that failed, we had to think of something else. So we did the contest, and STILL tried to get in touch with HP writers. They don't want to participate. If that upsets you take it up with them, not us.

We announced the winnders of the contest days ago and they were all e-mailed. If you missed it...well then you missed it. We announced it on twitter.

We skipped HP and HG because NOBODY ENTERED! What are we supposed to do? We don't steal people's fanfiction pieces and post them to the site and we never will.

These are issues that we've spent a lot of time trying to sort out. If you don't think we've done all we could to get in touch with other fandoms you are WRONG.

And on that note, next time you want to leave a comment on our blog page you should know your facts. You don't know what you're talking about at all, yet you can rant and rave about how we don't know what we're doing. We're doing the best that we can, but this site is about participation and if there is no participation there isn't much we can do about it but skip it and move on.

If you're going to leave comments on our blog, don't leave them anonymously. How the heck are we supposed to get in touch with you to resolve issues if you do that? Easy. We can't. And then you just go on being mad at us over things we have no control over.

I hope this has cleared up some confusion. If you have any other issues feel free to contact us at bloggingfanfiction@gmail.com

Love and Peace,
Sam
