International Date Line West has hung Sunday out to dry - a day that will never again exist.

At the same time, International Date Line East says it is already Tuesday.

Someone once said that a line has length but no width.

"Get on with it!"

Great fun reading every entry; I truly hope not to have missed any comments lurking in the undergrowth. But this is a contest, with winners and boozers, moaners and shakers, so there is some cake to cut.

The Final Cut

The ten finalists are (in no particular order) the following twelve pieces:

More Nonsense for @rycharde's Contest by @fitinfun

Writing Contest For Purveyors Of Extreme Nonsense- Check The Rules Within Contest Hosted By The Inimitable @rycharde by @stevenwood

My nonsense. My entry to the contest for @rycharde by @sacra97

The nightmare! Nonsense or News? My Second entry for @rycharde contest by @felixgarciap

Aus dem abenteuerlichen Leben von Karl May by @filosof103

Nonsense Writing Contest ~ Week One by @snook

Factual Fiction. by @thehive

Blue Vortex by @blueeyes8960

Sosnesne Righting Countess by @enginewitty

Camping report by @eturnerx

A Nonsense Story: "Untitled" by @wwwiebe

The Bleeken Nod by @bia.birch

Each writer will receive 2 MAPR tokens. They will be sent just after posting this.

I would also like to distribute 1 MAPR to the following who just missed out: @por500bolos and @mariita52.

What do we do now?

So, I would appreciate if readers would vote below on their favourite pieces from the above list. You may pick more than one. This will run for 48 hours from posting. Does anybody really want to wait 7 whole long days?

I shall then announce the final winners on Thursday. The winners will be a mixture of my personal favourites and those most voted. There will be 2 winners who will receive an extra 4 MAPR each. In case it is very close, I may offer three prizes.

And Finally...

I hope to see even more people participate in Round 2. I shall continue to post some inspirations and historical junkyards of nonsense. You may discover a style you particularly like, or just let rip and let the words fall as they may.

Just like dreaming, everyone can do it, but it takes practice to be lucid.
