The tome has been frisking about the room this morning, whilst I've been trying to wake up and start my day. It's funny how it remains quiet until I have gotten my first cup of coffee. It seems almost to know and have respect, for the fact that I am so VERY not a morning person.
However, I am dressed, and that first cup is half empty now, so let's start the show.
Winners and words.
My winner this week is RRKovar with Turning The Tables: This is just a brilliant and elegant bit of writing. You've moved the story forward with brutal efficiency. Also, was NOT expecting Nate to stab his brother. Nice twisty bit there. Thank you!
And this week's runner up is Zoe Farr with Flashback (20): Zoe, every glimpse into Ame's character makes me hungry to know more. You did a great job of weaving the prompts in, too!
As always, thank you all for playing! Each week brings so many amazing stories. You continue to make it hard to choose!
And the tome has brought forth new words! Yay!
I am particularly in love with Ejective, though at this stage I have no idea what I'll do with it! The tome continues to challenge!
