    I enjoyed every story, congrats to all contestants. I attempted to write an entry, but that huge white screen bore no fruit.

    My stories came last AND second to last!

    The Blue Whale was influenced by Kafka's The Castle. The Blue Whale represents heaven and man's journey attempting to locate its position.

    Submit next year it's fun to do and you can hone your writing skills. Getting a story into 750 words is a big challenge! I liked your stories though! Keep writing!
