DEAD-SICK OF WAITING
By: darthwader

Corny! But funny, I'll give you that. But your tense changed! You mumbled, and nobody moves. I do wonder if maybe your character is just stuck at the DMV...
13/20

Sudden Shift of Priorities
By: mandax

I didn't like the thought. That sort of thing feels like a device that only works well in longer pieces, but it could just be me. I certainly can relate to wanting something bad to happen to me in exchange for a respite on a deadline, though.
14/20

Last Heartbeat
By: Philo

Okay, I figured you were working on some double entendre here, because when I hear "beat counter" I think of someone running down the street with one of those silly exercise calculator things on their elastic waistband... But I think this is either too subtle or too immature in its content. I'm not sure which it is.
13/20

Dephere Likes Brokeback Riding
By: Dephere

See what happens when you don't have a title? That said, I like this piece. Maybe it's just because I always enjoy death personified, but I really like this. A bit too wordy and redundant at the end, though.
16/20

MNJ1193's Favorite Cheese Comes From The Place Where The Sun Don't Shine (and not the dark side of the moon)
By: MNJ1193

Another no title. For shame. I like the ending, it's cute, but a little clichéd.
13/20

Could I Have An Eternal Feast For One, Please?
By: Kelhanion

Hah! Hah! I like it! Hah!
17/20

Let me explain
By: Nish

Cutting it a little too close to poetry, aren't we? Not bad, although it relies too much on wordplay for my tastes.
15/20

Hunger Fire
By: ebmadman

Okay, I should have anticipated that a 50 word count requirement would mean a lot of trick endings... I like this trick ending. Here I was thinking he had an erection, and he was just a fatty wanting his pastry! Clever!
18/20

Logical Consequences
By: Jiieden

Far out piece, man... Took two reads for it to sink in, but I'm rather impressed. Lots of showing and no telling—very good entry!
18/20

Oopsidaisy
By: high_flyer

I saw it coming. Sorry. It's been done to death.
12/20

Oscillation
By: Chris Miller

I liked the piece, but it felt like the part about the deadlines was just added in. I can see what you were trying to do, but since it came at the end it didn't feel like it belonged.
17/20

Flat Line
By: voicesinmyhead

Very emotive. Very sad. Emotive is good. Sad is not good, but gets you points anyway. Very poignant piece—you capture the difficulty of choosing euthanasia well.
19/20

Deadline
By: huni

Ew. That's horribly unsettling... Which means you wrote it well. Although I don't find the premise believable. If the line was dead they'd find out what was going on before frying the dude.
17/20

A Race of Hands
By: Savia

Pretty good, I'd say. A bit too wordy and too much telling, if you ask me, but the ending is great.
16/20

Deadlines or Priorities?
By: Blackhawk_t

He's no Dr. Huckstable! I like how you take the bad father stereotype and turn it into a really bad doctor...
16/20

The Office
By: poliArch

Meh. Sort of simple and cliché... It doesn't really offer any more than the sum of its words.
10/20

To Rise Again
By: spaetzlemeister

Too much imagery! I found myself wondering, "why do I care?" You need to add a purpose to your piece, or otherwise the reader won't care.
11/20

Actor?
By: Itsaboysname

Hah! I easily heard the actor repeating the lines like a robot. Not bad, if a bit simplistic.
14/20

The Ads
By: eggo

Winner. Effing hilarious! Original, too—I didn't think about someone writing their piece in the form of an ad.

Dead-sick of Waiting
Author: Darthwader

Very punny. I liked it, though "biting my head off" was an odd preclusion.

Score: 15/20



Sudden Shift of Priorities
Author: mandax

Way to use the title to aid the story, well done. Poignant. Concise.

Score: 17/20



Last Heartbeat
Author: Philo

The veiled metaphor was more effective than the plot and I was confused. Is she resuscitating him? I guess he's referring to a pacemaker, but this piece is a stretch.

Score: 9/20



Untitled
Author: Dephere

Precise and perfunctory. This didn't really strike a chord in me.

Score: 14/20


Untitled
Author: MNJ1193

Simple and not enough. Neat trick at the end, but it doesn't build anything or go anywhere or come back.

Score: 8/20


Could I Have an Eternal Feast for One, Please?
Author: Kelhanion

Excellent use of dialogue. It's an efficient tool to convey more meaning in less words, and you wielded it well.

Score: 18/20



Let me explain
Author: Nish

Your allusion was a bit juvenile, and your parentheses more so. I can see where you were going, but I don't much care for it.

Score: 7/20



Hunger Fire
Author: ebmadman

"Frantically". Too many adjectives and adverbs weighed it down. It was a story, no fault there, but it had no punch.

Score: 12/20


Logical Consequences
Author: Jiieden

Pretty cool. I was trying to decide who the narrator was, the victim possibly, but it didn't matter. I liked it anyways.

Score: 17/20


Oopsidaisy
Author: high_flyer

Good thriller in fifty or less. It had lots of tension in a small amount of words. Good pulp stuff.

Score: 15/20



Oscillation
Author: Chris Miller

Solid use of fifty words. I liked where it was going, not so much where it ended up. The rising action was larger than the climax, I'd say.

Score: 17/20



Flat Line
Author: voicesinmyhead

I liked all of it except the line "Extraordinary measures?" because I don't know what it was referring to.

Score: 19/20


Deadline
Author: huni

Nuclear war? I'm not sure. Otherwise it's a good buildup. All action heroes a la Tom Clancy are named Jack, aren't they? Lol.

Score: 16/20


A Race of Hands
Author: Savia

Metaphorical. I haven't heard 'nibs' in a sentence in a long time. "One man alone" is redundant. Welcome, btw.

Score: 16/20



Deadlines or Priorities?
Author: Blackhawk_t

Someone else tackled the same theme on a more serious note. I liked your humor though. Still, for all the fifty words you had, it seemed small in scope.

Score: 13/20



The Office
Author: poliArch

Pulpy and thin. Not much going for it to support the final sentence. But it bodes well as your first post. Stick around here, you won't go too far wrong.

Score: 10/20



To Rise Again
Author: Spaetzlemeister

How is the theme of 'deadline' incorporated into your piece, unless you're talking specifically about how there isn't one? Too glitzy with the metaphor; no substance.

Score: 8/10


Actor
Author: Itsaboysname

Good story. Buildup, release. If you were going for humor, I liked it more as a representation of drama.

Score: 17/20



Untitled
Author: Hodge

Cynical and cold. I hated this. Where's life's rosy optimism?

Score: negative fifty bagillion/ 20



Title: The Ads

I'm not familiar with, um, boat stripping, so I'm assuming the metaphor works. I had to read it a couple times, lol. As far as misrepresentation humor goes, this is one of the better ones for this competition.

Score: 17/20

DEAD-SICK OF WAITING
Author: darthwader

Probably the most original piece of the bunch. A horrible pun, but like Will Ferrell it's funny because he know's it a horrible pun. Good work.

Score: 18/20

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Sudden Shift of Priorities
Author: mandax

Interesting premise, but it seems more like a first draft than a final copy. It seems to me like the person is still focused on getting the disk in on time, because of the repetition, so I don't think the title fits it very well. Like I said, it's a good idea but to make it work it needs more time put into it.

Score: 9/20

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Last Heartbeat
Author: Philo

Are they having sex? I really can't figure out what's going on. It's like a stage show that doesnt have any props. Needs more of a set up. I know it can only be 50 words or less, but that's part of the challenge.

Score: 10/20 (for looking like it might have promise)

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

No title
Author: Dephere

Goddammit Dephere, you left out the title. What would have been a great entry has to have points taken off because you made a careless error. Anyway, it's a good, dark piece. I liked it alot, everything was set up well for the revelation at the end, although I don't see the need to repeat that the man was clean cut and proper (at least not using the same words you used 3 sentences ago)

Score: 15/20

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

No fucking title
Author: MNJ1193

No title, not a good start. I don't like the tone of it either (whiny school kid), although I'll chock that up to personal preference. Modest creativity, although I dont think that writing something in 50 words or less is all that tough, so the whole premise is unrealistic.

Score: 7/20

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Could I Have An Eternal Feast For One Please?
Author: Kelhanion

I'll be honest, I didnt like it the first time I read it, but after the third or fourth time it got me to chuckle. It's a clever story, my kind of thing. I think a reference to heaven earlier on would add alot to the dialogue between John Doe and who I can only assume to be St. Peter.

Score: 18/20

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Let me explain
Author: Nish

I like the line "you are dead for the rest of your life". That's Aqua Teen Hunger Force style humor, and it added color to a good piece. Nice use of dictionary//encyclopedia style and tone. Good work, although the premise seems a little unrealistic (even in a fantasy setting)

Score: 16/20

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Hunger Fire
Author: ebmadman

Haha... good stuff. Good title. I can just imagine a my plump roommate making the same barreling rampage towards a closing pastry cart. Good job describing the "constant friction", it puts us into the protagonist's head. However, "The displeasure.." would have sounded better as its own sentence.

Score: 16/20

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Logical Consequences
Author: Jiieden

I'm not getting anything from this. It lacks setting, tone... Description is hard when you've only got 50 words to use, but hey, other people did it, you could have too. Less substance, more ambiance plzkthx.

Score: 6/20

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Oopsidaisy
Author: high_flyer

Damn. When I saw the prompt, this idea for a story actually popped into my mind. Kudos for that, but I wish I could say you did it justice. Poor grammar, the sentences "Six seconds. Three wires. One choice" should have all been one sentence. Another thing that got to me, this guy just blew himself and probably several other people to bum fuck egypt, so why did he say "Oopsidaisy"? Having him say that would be like Quentin Tarantino name his movies "Give Bill a Stern Talking to!". On top of all that, it was 51 words. Shame on you.

Score: 9/20

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Oscillation
Author: Chris Miller

An interesting piece. I apreciate its artistic examination of the world around us, but the line "See Merlin age" seems out of place. Good creativity, what I get from the piece is that strictly because of the nature of the universe, petty human deadlines are... well... petty. Good work.

Score: 17/20

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Decisions? or Flat Line? Hell if I know..
Author: voicesinmyhead

A good piece. You caught and presented the woman's third person disbelief in what she was observing very well. I don't know what choice a flat lining man's wife would have to make concerning him though, so it seems a little unrealistic. I'll just chock it up to a lack of imagination on my part though. I can't figure out what the title is, but that's not my fault.

Score: 16/20

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Deadline
Author: huni

I really don't know what's going on. I can conjecture that it's a man awaiting capital punishment, and he and everyone else (including his mother) are waiting on a call from the governor to grant a pardon, however the governor's phone line is dead, and the call is never made, so the man is killed... I think? Except that my theory does not account for the use of the word "slick", so I still don't know what's going on. I apreciate the having to use a little bit of imagination in interpreting someone's work, but this piece just leaves alot to be desired.

Score: 10/20

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

A Race of Hands
Author: Savia

Good stuff. Very creative interpretation of a classroom exam. I enjoyed it alot, and try as I might I can't find anything negative to say. Oh wait, nevermind. I think you could have done a better job with the title. You made a reference to an Obituary at the end, something like "Pen to the death" or "Give me time or give me death" would be better. I don't know, "A Race of Hands" just doesnt fit.

Score: 18/20

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Deadlines or Priorities
Author: Blackhawk_t

Nice piece. Good comedic concept, tried and true. Not a creative style, but the creative way in which it is implemented makes up for it. I liked how the end tied it all together!

Score: 17/20

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

The Office
Author: poliArch

I found this piece bland, indescriptive, and overall lacking. Who the hell is Raymond? Why is someone trying to kill him? What is the point of this piece besides a quick reply written only to fulfill the minimum criteria? You get 4 points for grammar.

Score: 4/20

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

To Rise Again
Author: spaetzlemeister

A decent peak at the day to day repetitive life style of the average person, but what does this have to do with deadlines?

Score: 8/20

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Actor?
Author: Itsaboysname

hehe... It's moderately humorous. That, along with grammar, is about all it has going for it though. It's quasi-creative, but I don't see what it has to do with deadlines. If you add in the director telling John that he has to learn to act in 5 seconds, than you've got a deadline in this story and it would have gotten a decent score.

Score: 10/20

Dead-Sick of Waiting
Author: darthwader

This one was pretty cute, and the play on words…well, I feel like I should have seen it coming. You did well in choosing what to write given the word number limitation. A bad pun, but a cute one nonetheless, and it made me smile.

Sudden Shift of Priorities
Author: mandax

The title for this one was bang on and makes the title and the body more of one solid piece rather than just a title and a body. I like how it was in just an instant that things shifted. I felt like this strayed just a bit from the theme at first, but given the narrator needed something before a certain time passed, it goes.

Score: 16/20

Last Heartbeat
Author: Philo

Hmm. I have to say that I could take this a couple of ways as for what’s going on and for both I’m still not really getting into the deadlines aspect part of it. There’s no doubt that it’s technically just fine, but I guess I’m just not feeling it all that much. Not bad, but it just didn’t make me feel too much of anything.

Score: 12/20

None
Author: Dephere

Another play on “dead” in this one, which I didn’t mind. It wasn’t too interesting to me, but I like the way you present Death. I’ve always liked to present him as a clean cut kind of guy. The tone was also very cold, in my opinion, which worked well given the subject matter.

Score: 13/20

None
Author: MNJ1193

Could I have an Eternal Feast for One, Please?

Score: 18/20

Let Me Explain
Author: Nish

I just have to say this one thing because it gets me every time I look at this: “dead for the rest of your life.” Isn’t that a bit contradictory? J No worries, though. This was another original shot by making your short into a definition instead of a short. A nice sort of logical toned piece.

Score: 13/20

Hunger Fire
Author: ebmadman

This was definitely funny. I read the last line and I almost laughed out loud. In my opinion, “rotund” is just an amusing word to say and read anyway. Nitpick, though - you meant “thighs” instead of “thigh” right?

Score: 18/20

Logical Consequences
Author: Jiiden

I have to say in this one I got the feeling that I might not know exactly what was going on, and given that there is a fifty word limit and no possibility of further explanation, I didn’t like that so much. I do, however, like the voice in this piece. This reminds me of doing proofs in geometry, which I liked very much.

Score: 15/20

Oopsidaisy
Author: high_flyer

When I read this, I couldn’t believe I wasn’t expecting it from someone. Deadline theme…disarming a bomb… Of course. Just a personal preference, I would have liked it better without the “Boom!” at the end. Funny title for the piece. Made me smile a bit. Apparently Jack didn’t know the “red you’re dead, green your keen” rhyme, huh?

Deadlines or Priorities?
Author: Blackhawk_t

This one is pretty funny as well. Not exactly a deadline, but I think it qualifies. Also, I think the sense of urgency could have been pumped up a bit more or it could have been made funnier if his wife were having the child. Still, it’s funny and sadly reminded me of my family. Hm.

The Office

I sort of feel bad because I don’t want to be prejudiced against another dead phone line pun. I’ll say that I did like the ending of a first being his last. I think had you more words to work with, you could have really punched the urgency and given it a bit more oomph.

To Rise Again
Author: spaetzlemeister

Well, this certainly has a lot of imagery going for it, I must say. Rather poetic even, in the right light. Maybe I’m missing something, but this feels more like something that would fit better under a theme of repetition rather than a deadline theme. I’m just not feeling a deadline anywhere.

Score: 10/20

Actor?
Author: Itsaboysname

I have to say this one didn’t exactly do it for me. Maybe with a statement of “okay, you have three minutes to show me your best stuff” or something like that to just push the theme a bit more in the piece. I do like how the “actor” gradually gets cut off sooner and sooner in the line.

Score: 12/20

The Ads
Author: eggo

Another funny piece. I feel like I’m missing the joke in this one, despite the fact that I do find it funny, so you’ll have to forgive me for that.

Thanks everyone. I have been participating in these things for year or so and enjoy the hell out of them.

Hodge, glad you got the joke.

Thanks for yet another LM adventure....especially to you judges. I really appreciate the time you sacrifice for this, as do all the entrants I'm sure.

I think FollowingShadow has it out for me. ;)

It's nice to hear what you all think....bad or good.

Wow... joint first on my first try :blush:

Thanks very much to all the judges. I particularly liked being told back to back that my title was both unnecessary and the best in the set. I guess that's why several judges are always good :)

Congrats to all the participants and finishers, and thanks to all the judges.

Thanks to everyone for doing the judging. Even the penguin who failed to get them in - last week at university can be tough for sure.

As to Mr Space Cowboy...I'll have words with you later. :p

Another!

I thought "Actor?" was a pun on the deadline topic. I mean, he's saying a line about how someone's dead... Well, it is a stretch. But I do wonder if that's what itsaboysname was trying to do.

Anyway, I didn't participate, but I did enjoy some of the entries. Congrats to all who participated on another successful LM.

Ouch! Didn't even place this time. Oh well, I'll survive.:D

Thanks to the judges for their time, and congratulations to the winners.

Can't wait for the next one.

Oh goodness, my play on words was so lame some of the judges didn't even get it. Yeah, I was trying to do what bobothegoat said. It was a line about how someone is dead.
Thanks to the judges though! I'll be sure to be more clear next time!
