So, we finally made it to March 1st! Entries have been received and will soon be available to view in WESTERN CONTEST ENTRY THREAD -- please do not post in this thread and make sure you read the OP.
This thread is for the discussion of the contest and also serves as a reminder of the rules regarding voting. I have posted an abridged version of the rules (specific to voting) below. Please read it before casting your votes.
The contests full rules can be found HERE.
Thank you all again for taking part, I hope you'll have as much fun choosing your top three as you did writing your piece.
I'd also like to take the time to remind entrants and passers by that the March western prompt is Mystery Western in preperation for entering the Hillerman Contest. I thouroughly encourage you to give it a go. Full details can be found here. If you had fun writing this one, why not keep going!
So, with that all said. On with the discussion!
