The tome and I are oddly energized this evening. It could be that it was warm enough to open windows for a bit today, and there's been a lovely, cool breeze all day. The evening is a bit more chilly, and there's an almost wild scent in the air tonight.
The tome is stretched out at the edge of my bed, sniffing mightily at the curtain as it blows inwards on the wind. It seems content enough for a few minutes while I announce winners.
I had a very hard time this week. Every story used the prompts beautifully.
This week's winner is Jon Xero with (Alpha): The visuals are what got me in this story. You do a brilliant job with description. It's one of the things I consistently love about your work.
And my runner up this week is RR Kovar with Uncommon Courtesy: I just love this piece. Knowing RR's writing style as I do, I'm sensing there's at least one twist here that we haven't seen, even if she doesn't favor us with any more from these characters. Though I really hope she does.
And now...new words!
Turbulent (Turbulence, or any form is fine)
Hmmmm...interesting combination there.

The tome has gone to sleep. Go and create, my friends. We'll be waiting...
