Sorry, Readers, OVATION! Is Not A Real Show - Personal Post

There appears to be some confusion about my previous post (OVATION! - Flash Fiction)...it was a fictional post, by a fictional blogger, about a fictional show where the next World Leader is elected via a reality/talent television show. You won't find it in your TV listings or on Google, and I sincerely hope it never comes to pass. And it certainly wasn't written to "fool" anyone, I had hoped to misdirect you, the reader, and that you would realize at the end that it was a spoof. So I suppose I failed in that respect. My sense of humour is not everyone's, unfortunately. (Or fortunately!) At any rate, thank you to everyone who read it, commented on it, and emailed me. And remember - if it has "flash fiction" in the title, it's fiction. really. Would I kid you? :)

  4. You had me fooled (which is actually quite easy, sadly!) but I didn't comment because I can't stand reality shows. I should have read more carefully . . .

  6. No worries Stu, I only had one ratty email and that from someone not a follower, just a random viewer (or lurker). I certainly never intended to mess with people :((( Still, it was an interesting experience, and I'll continue to experiment with different types of writing, formats, and voices. Thanks, everyone, for commenting.
