(Hee hee!) That was fun to say!
Sorry for the rather lame title of this post. I'm suffering a bit of brain cramping today.
The tome was a bit recalcitrant about words today. It's just disgorged them as I was rushing about getting ready for work. So, winners first, and then I shall reveal its wisdom.
I don't think judging is going to get any easier from week to week. You all positively shine every week! It's truly an honor to judge such amazing talent. I thank you.
OK, short on time, so...
My winners this week are:
David Barber with Hatred. David, as I said in my comments, you have captured the nightmarish reality of such a situation to its very roots. Brilliant writing.
I do have a runner-up this week as well:
Crimson Archer with Broken, The Devils Chapel. Mr. Archer (or should it be Mr. Crimson??), this is a lushly descriptive bit of work. I could feel, hear, and smell that chapel, Sir. And your black angel? He's fabulous. His unabashed and almost manic glee in his own evil was very refreshing. Your closing lines had me chuckling for hours, by the way.
Any and all meanings and variants allowed, 'cause I'm feeling generous and happy! *grin*
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, February 21, to get your entries in. Winners will be announced and new words will be posted by 3:00 PM on Friday, February 22.
Create, create, create, my dears! I'm waiting!
