Contest results? not so much

Looking for something?


Riiiight..
Contest results.

Well, clearly I'm a total slacker.

I'm actually working on them now.
Just didn't have them done by 7, so this is a place holder.

We can all wager as to what time they get posted.
Winner gets a prize of course!

List your guess in the comment column.


RESULTS ARE UP! 

Let's see if anyone guess 9:18am or even close to it.

The 12th of forever.

Steve Forti said...

8:34am

nightsmusic said...

As soon as TDOY quits demanding food and takes a nap so you can get back to being a Shark and not WAITRESSSSSSSSJANET!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Amy Schaefer said...

0922.

I'm off to bed. My husband is reading me scary stories about the crocodiles, tiny jellyfish, snakes, fish and spiders that want to kill us as we sail along the Eastern coast of Australia. I'm going to go read something cuddly and snuggly instead. Some Dennis Lehane, maybe.

Michael Seese said...

9:30

(Not specifying a.m. or p.m., so I have TWO changes to win.)

Lucie Witt said...

10:23am

I'm excited to read this week's finalists and see how they handled the new rules.

Julie Weathers said...

9:39 I hope the dog is the prize.

Peggy Larkin said...

High noon! That'll make it a perfect time for me to read over lunch. :)

Just Jan said...

11:44. Right before lunch.

Sam Hawke said...

10.05.

Amy, don't worry, the tiny jellyfish are also basically invisible so you won't even notice them before they sting you. Wait, was that comforting? ;)

Colin Smith said...

12:01pm. Or whatever f****** time Janet da** well pleases! Who's QOTKU around here, after all?? ;)

Mark Thurber said...

8:14. If Janet is a slacker, I shudder to think what the rest of us are.

E.M. Goldsmith said...

12:34 because that would be cool.

Manda Zim said...

8:41...just in time for the baby's nap and a break for momma.

Jennifer R. Donohue said...

11:38 because frequently that's when Publisher's Lunch (or the version I get of it) hits my inbox.

LynnRodz said...

9:03 your time; 15h03 mine. I hope the Duchess isn't the prize, one diva in the house is more than enough. (Hubby's words, not mine.)

Lisa Bodenheim said...

O Great QOTKU, only you know!

Oh wait, there's a prize. 8:47 am ET.

Carolynnwith2Ns said...

Today.

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

I'm going with 8:17 am.

Donnaeve said...

This is about impossible. First of all, the beloved doggie picture. It's making my brain mushy. Second, you called it the Up The Ante contest, but Holy Wackamoli those entries? I'd say a few of them upped the Ante with their stories.

But. Just for grins and giggles. 10:00

Celia Reaves said...

It's already 8:03 here (same time zone as the Shark - I bask in the reflected glory of that) and it's still the doggie picture so ..... I'll say 10:00 am. But I'm only guessing because you promised a prize, otherwise my answer would be the same as Colin's - the QOTKU posts whenever she jolly well chooses!

And honestly, Janet -- slacker? PLEASE! *unladylike snort*

Brian Schwarz said...

Why 12:02pm of course. I don't know about the rest of you, but after reading all those entries, it would appear our conspiring together worked magnificently. We've made it even harder than normal to select a winner! So many wonderful stories!

E.M. Goldsmith said...

Carolynn wins. Too clever.

And yeah, if Janet is a slacker then I am an actual slug. Seriously, I wish I could be half as productive as our Queen. I would have dozens of best sellers by now.

Colin Smith said...

Sorry if my expletive-ridden comment offended. Here's the clean version:

Whatever flipping time Janet darn well pleases! Who's QOTKU around here, after all??

You may laugh, but that's probably what I would have said. You know that's what Janet would say, too. ;)

Angie Brooksby-Arcangioli said...

I broke my rules and entered this one. It was a rough week, and writing keeps me sanest when life hits hard. A stroke in the family. I can't say who it is but, ouf! Luckily we reacted quickly and damage is less than what it might have been.

I guess results will come at 13:50 reef time.

SiSi said...

I'll guess Sooner. Or Later.

Sarah Meral said...

12.22 pm your time, 18.22 my time.

Jason Magnason said...

Shark-thirty!

1:22PM Tea Time

At the Cat's meow.

nightsmusic said...

Something to keep us distracted for a few minutes while waiting for the results. The Gotham Workshops newsletter came and they posted about times when dedications were better than the book...I don't agree with that for all of them, but loved them!

Dedications!

Steve Forti said...

Bummer, I missed. Let's try again: 10:17:39 (I'm precise to the second).

Brigid said...

1:05, because it's inevitable that Something Will Come Up

Dena Pawling said...


It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.

Wait, it's May already?

Kregger said...

When the bell tolls.

or

12:05 Eastern Shark Time

Or

Whichever is closest.

E.M. Goldsmith said...

So Dena is going with 1984. Possible as Janet is clearly in possession of Hermione Granger's Time Tuner.

One of the all time great opening lines. Still sends a shiver down my spine.

Craig said...

0700 4 may 2016. If not then the 12th of never.

In other words, take your time. I liked the new format. It seemed to me to make the story a slice of a plot to exploit and not a whole plot that needed to be developed and then expressed in 95 words( 100 less the prompts).

I am sure the new format takes a slightly different perspective to judge properly so take your time.

Jenny C said...

11:23 ET

Sherry Howard said...

12:47(36seconds) It's your own fault! You've created this madness that's called a community.

Celia Reaves said...

Angie: Sending good wishes and healing vibes to you and your family. Stroke is awful, and time is critical. I'm glad you got treatment promptly.

In general, people, we should all know the signs of stroke and don't be shy about getting help immediately. It might be a false alarm, but maybe brain cells are dying RIGHT NOW while you're waiting. Call. Now.

Thus endeth the PSA for today. You may now return to your regularly schedules wait for the contest results.

RKeelan said...

3:14 pm, or Pi o'clock.

Mark Thurber said...

Ding, ding, ding -- subheader nomination! Sherry: "It's your own fault! You've created this madness that's called a community."

Brian M. Biggs said...

O Dark Thirty

Janet Reid said...

Amy is closest.
And some of you are really hilarious.
Now, go read
the contest results

Amy, can you get mail?
Can you even get wifi?

The prize patrol may have to deliver in person!
