I have no idea where that title came from, except that it's First day of Spring here, and we write horror and...
Anyhow, the tome seems to realize I've made a timing change. It has harumphed its way up the stairs from visiting with Mofo, and is currently snuffling about at my feet as I write. I've provided a small snack, as has become my habit when I want new words. It should be finished with that and ready to provide new prompts in just a few moments.
First of all, Happy Spring! Don't know about the rest of you but I've about bloody had it with winter.
Second, I'd like to apologize for not commenting this week. As admin, I feel particularly badly about that. I'm slowly getting settled into my new life and job, but it's been a bit more complex a process than even I imagined, and it's not over yet. Still, I have read every word each of you has written, and I've been thrilled, entertained, appalled, and frightened. It's been grand! Thank you.
Now to our winners this week.
First place goes to AJ Humpage with Just Another Face In The Crowd: What a horrific notion, that demonry is the cause of such mundane horrors. And to give us his thoughts, knowing what he does, as he waits to detonate the bomb. Brilliantly awful!
And our runner up is: Matt Farr with: Except from "The Practical Demons Guide to Perils of the Mundane Realms": Matt, this was great stuff! I adore the idea that as RR said, they are as afraid of us as we are of them, and that they have a whole agency to deal with dealing with us! LOL.
Seems the tome has brought forth the new words whilst I wasn't looking. Little blighter "brought them forth" onto my shoe! Right, so...
*I was chatting with a friend as I was writing this. He told me one of his favorite words. It's syzygy. I had to look it up. Anyone who'd like to add to their challenge, can feel free to include this one as well. It's just such a great word. Including it, or not, will not affect my decision-making this week. I just figured I'd toss it out there as a fun thing for anyone who might want to give it a shot.
The usual rules apply: 100 words maximum, excluding the title, of flash fiction or poetry using all of the three words above in the genres of horror, fantasy, science fiction or noir. All variants and use of the words as stems are fine.
You have until 11:30 PM (Eastern Standard Time) Thursday, March 28th, to get your entries in. Winners will be announced and new words will be posted by 11:00 PM on Friday, March 29th.
Go and create, m'dears. The tome and I will be waiting...
