Tension Blogfest Finalists Announced!

Wow, I had no idea it would be so tough to choose just six out of all those entries! Thank you once again to everyone who wrote a tension-filled piece. The standard of the entries was most deliciously high. Yum...

And now I can probably write any rubbish I feel like, because I'm sure you've skipped right past this part to see if your name is on the list.

Yum-di-dum-di-dum... Oodle-yoody-bum...
Supercalifragi-whatever-Mary-Poppins-said-alidocious...


Right, here it is! Please join Cally and me in congratulating...

Our top six (in alphabetical order):


*applause*

Where to from here?

Since it was so hard to narrow it down to six, we’ve decided we’re not going to choose who comes first, second and third. Instead, we’re handing that tricky job over to you!

Read the finalist entries to remind yourself what they're about, and then you have until 11.59pm AEST time Tuesday 7 June (which is 9.59am Tuesday in New York, if that helps) to cast your vote on who should be crowned The Tension Legend. Choose wisely, because you only get one vote. Cally and I will announce the winners on both of our blogs at 10pm AEST next Wednesday 8 June (8am Wednesday, New York time).




PS. We've intentionally hidden the results from you because we're mean like that ;-) Plus it will make the announcement of the winners more exciting!
