I think I'm going to start saving my posts in Word, so that I can re-post them on Saturday morning, when my computer decides it can't be bothered on Friday night! Jeez!
Good morning, all.
The Tome is not going to be happy about this. It's 7:00 AM here in the states, and I'm going to have to wake the little darling to get new words. It's rather a nocturnal creature, you know. Perhaps if I toss a bit of bacon under the bed, where it nests...
Anyway, let's announce winners whilst we wait for it to wake up, shall we?
We had a good crop of amazing stories this week, and choosing winners has been challenging indeed. However, there were a couple for me, that did stand out.
Our winner this week is Sandra Davies with A change of focus (50): Sandra, this is just gorgeous from one end to the other! It reads and flows like poetry. Your use of the prompts is fantastic! And the surprise ending makes reading this a perfect treat. Thank you so much!
In second place is Helen with the conclusion of The Dare: I've been hooked on this story from the beginning. Freddy has been such an interesting character. Loved the little twist at the end as to where his power came from. Thank you!
And this week, I must give honorable mention to Zoe Farr for her Untitled piece. First and foremost it made me chuckle. But I love the normacly of the conversation combined with the fantasy aspects of the world that converastion is taking place in. This was great fun to read. Thank you.
The Tome has left new words as I've been typing. Let's see what we have.
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

You have until 11:30 PM EST on Thursday, August 15th, to get your
entries in.. Winners will be announced and new words will be posted by

Please feel free to post, tweet, and otherwise network our little game.
The gates are open!
