    Make a list of titles from the 2020 Prose competition.

    Put the name of a suspected author next to as many as you want.

    The person with the most correct pairings of author and title, posted before the time of any author announcement posts gets the bragging rights for a whole year.

    Sure you get to see others guesses but what do they know.

    Actual authors must put a deliberate wrong guess against their title or they will not be allowed to brag (include bragging about sighting of rare orchids or other unrelated matters).

    Interesting.

    While I'm off to hit 18 holes in 100 golf shots while wearing a mask; I'll compile a mental list to be written later.

    This could be in fun.

    I would really like to enter, but since I received the Posts I will stand back.

    We have 15 pieces, but fewer authors. They could submit up to three pieces each.

    Should authors who are happy to be involved be allowed to say how many they entered?

    I see it that there should be no reason to say you were an author or how many you entered. As far as I am concerned people should be free to enter this and still never say if they were one of the authors.

    Basically this makes no difference to people's rights to be anonymous. If nobody owns a title then nobody scores any points for the title.

    Obviously people have all had access to the threads where people hinted that they would be entering but you can guess absolutely any name you like.

    The same name put against every title could score somebody 3 points if they pick the right name. Will that score be beaten? But, what if that author doesn't admit to being an author? It's a game of strategy!

    only one taker?

    The results will be out soon and then the authors will probably stand to their work...
