Apart from reader's views on the stories I would also like to know about participants' experience during the whole process (without giving details about their story).  How was it to write within a few constraints. Did you enjoy, have fun or were you stressed? How easy or difficult was it of build a story around a given plot as compared to when you start your story totally on your own? Please share your experience, that might encourage more people to join in.

Wow...interesting stories...I have already identified 2 writers.
Now how can I write comments on stories? People will start eliminating and eventually find that this story has not been written by me etc etc.
And my experience with the contest- I started off the day the contest was annouced. And the very next day I found the news about the new cast and was absolutely discouraged. I deleted the entire 3-4 scenes that I had written. I even thought of dropping out.
Then it was Sunny who actually encouraged and pushed me into it and yeah...even Drilabh. Sunny was a good sport and even gave me a few basic ideas - because I found it difficult to build a story into a given plot.
I was again not happy with the 21 days given to the story...was losing often do we study 1 month before exams??? Tongue  So I decided to push it forward and get everyone to finish it early.
Anyway, that's my experience...I managed to finish it...the plot may have loopholes, sorry for that. After reading some other stories, I feel I have no chance. Overall, enjoyed it. Big smile
And a big congrats to Prabha and all participants for making this a success.
(I finished upto story no 5, will read later or maybe tomorrow. Reading all stories at once is also causing confusion LOL

All the best to all of the contestants! I will try to read some of them. I would like to congratulate the contestants on making successful stories and doing so while they also had other things to do. I know it is a very ardous task and therefore, really appreciate what you've done. Kudos to all of you! Clap Clap

I will tell you something. I am part of another forum a 2 girls used to organise contests on making banners, signatures and wallpapers. They used to conduct the contest and participate in it as well. The makers were kept anonymous. However both these girls used to give feedback for each wallpaper or whatever the contest was for including their own without revealing what belongs to whom.

So participants can do the same give feedback for each story including you own, look at it just another Story No. X. Because all our regular posters are participants and if you all don't post your views, I doubt any views will be posted and we will not able to make the writers realise their strong and weak points.

lovely experience i must say,enjoyed every bit of it,I am having holidays so was thinking about how much i'll get bored during these days but Prabha's story competition idea gave me something to do.Waise i had started writing soon after the first deadline was announced but lost track in between and started of everything again but we all enjoyed a lot yaar and the sudden change in deadline made it more exciting,every second thinking what this person may be writing or what that person must be writing but yes this competition taught me one thing that i have to make a copy of whatever i write.I enjoyed every pal yaar last minute hadbadi,jaldi mein story complete karna and when i wasn't able to finish on time and posted ki is baar nahi toh agli baar i'll try many of you i.e. shagnika,sneha,drilabh,sunny etc requested prabha for time extension and when prabha agreed i felt so thankful to these 'friends' of mine and as soon as i finished retyping the whole thing and sent it to prabha i was like YAY !! and you all congratulated me.
So this competition was a gr8,exciting and an encouraging experience and Prabha thanks for this yaar u arranged it so well so Clap and Thumbs Up from us to you
