My deepest apologies my friends. Technical issues prevented me from getting online last night to post winners and words. Things seem to be back to normal for the nonce. As I'm late, I won't bother with introductory bits. Let's just get right to it.
This week's winner is Phil Ambler with Start Over: This is such a great bit of writing. I really like your use of the prompts this week. The idea of creation by committee, of a new world, and the destruction of the old one, is chilling in its practicality. The implication is that said destruction and creation, is also a simple task. There seems to be no indication of any difficulty in accomplishing the thing. Simply decide, and do. It brings to mind the standard question of who would get to make such decisions? Who are they? Thank you!
And this weeks runner up is RRKovar with Cause and Effect: Rebecca, the repetition here, rather than being dulling and redundant, makes the story doubly hard-hitting and effective. It makes the impact and irony of the final line that much more. Thank you!
The tome has had its breakfast and is ready to bring forth new words. Let's see what it has for us this week.
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.
