I'm going to get right to it, as my connection is still a bit wonky and has made me late.
Our winner this week is Antonia Woodville with Infinity 85: This installment is smooth as silk and delicious as the finest chocolate! Brilliant use of the prompts. A sheer joy to read. Thank you!
Also winning this week is Sandra Davies with Rallying [Threshold 52]: Sandra, I honestly had a difficult time deciding which of your installments this week to choose. Both were grand, but I just loved how you used the prompts in this. I'm dying to find out what happens next. Thank you!
And now on to the "other" good part! The Tome has provided new words!
The usual rules apply: 100 words maximum (excluding title) of flash fiction or poetry using all of the three words above in the genres of horror, fantasy, science fiction or noir. Serialized fiction is, as always, welcome. All variants and use of the words and stems are fine.
Feel free to post links to your stories on Twitter or Facebook or whichever social media best pleases you and, if you like, remind your friends that we are open to new and returning writers.
You have until Friday, February 6th. Winners and words on Saturday, February 7th.
The Gates are Open!
