The Million Writers Award nomination process appears to be going well, with a large number of reader and editor nominations coming in over the last few days. In fact, the only problem I've seen is the attempt by certain people to stuff the reader nomination box with the story "The First Fire" by David Andrew Stoler (originally published in Carve Magazine.) Please stop doing this. The story has already been nominated by several readers and was one of the three official nominations by Matthew Limpede, editor of Carve Magazine. Nominating a particular story over and over doesn't gain anyone anything--aside from making me irritated at having to spend time deleting all the redundant nominations.
