    Thank you all. I would love to see this site grow, and the CAW to continue. It can't happen without all of us contributing.

    Now it is time to sign off, and pass the account back to someone else.

    CAW SOP signing off with one last big THANK YOU!

    Thank you Mr. CAW SOP (@Uncle B) . . . you did a helluva' job. Thank you Jeymar. Thank you HCB, and congrats back at you for your story! Congrats to @bistander, great story, helluva close vote too! Shout out to @Little Miss K, as it appears that I've somewhat ridden to victory on her coattails, as her end of the story was far better liked. Thanks to all who wrote, all who tried to write, all who read, all who commented, and all who voted. Writing in things like the CAW can be very rewarding, and I encourage those of you who wonder whether you should or not to consider this . . . I was in the same boat about a half-dozen years ago or so, and I took a chance, and it has been a wonderful, wonderful ride. Thank you.

    Congratulations to everybody who was able to wrap a story around such an interesting set of words and phrases, and finish before the deadline. A special congrats to the winners. @ahorsewithnoname was sick and worried that he wouldn't finish in time, yet he still managed to write the longest winning story and another that placed. I hate overachievers. Great job @Little Miss K Sorry I bitched so much about the length, but I knew it was a great story. Next time co-author with me Miss K and I'll cut half the words. ;)

    Thank you to everyone who made time to read, comment and vote. Without that, us authors wouldn't have a cause. A rebel without a cause is cool, but not an author.

    I'm proud to say that two of my guesses were correct.:D

    On Let it Snow, I'm sorry about those errors. I know many don't care, but I do and so will a publisher, so no excuse. You see mistakes in my stories, I want to know about them. Thanks Horse I used your original comments to make corrections.

    I have to give credit to a friend of mine out on the left coast(nobody you know) for coming up with the framework for this story using some of the words.
    I'm months behind on Potential, so I swore I wasn't going to work on anything else. He talked me into it by telling me he would write it and all I'd have to do was make the sex better. He hand wrote 8 pages and mailed them to me. Because of that, I was able to spend three weeks researching the Anime characters, creating backstory, and completely changing his story. That's why it ended up being over 11,000 words. If he ever makes it here to read this, sorry and thanks.

    Thank you to all who took the time to read this and give it your support, and thank you, God that I didn't win because I don't have time to do all that is required to run the show. Great job, @Uncle B

    I'm not sure what to say. :confused:

    I really hope that someone liked the story. It really got into my heart, and I fell in love with it. I knew that it was getting long, but I kept finding things that I wanted to say. I'm sorry that it was such an inconvenience. :(

    Horse and I started out writing a traditional entry. After a few chapters, it was clear that I was only telling one side of the story. It was then that we discussed telling it from both sides. I thought it was a good idea, and didn't realize that some people would find it annoying. Once again, I'm sorry. :(

    Thank you to anyone who voted for it. A very special thank you to @ahorsewithnoname for being so patient with me and my busy life. I think I might have driven him a bit crazy. :oops: The whole experience was very fun and I am proud of the results.

    I will try and keep my stories shorter in the future. :(

    This is how @ahorsewithnoname pictured writing with me would be.:)

    This is probably how he felt by the end of it. o_O
