Prizes awarded to the best short fiction (250 words or less!) based on this picture. There were over 40 entries and all were fairly well done.
According to the adjudicator, here are the Top 5:
(and a quick comment from me :-)
1. "Giving Her the Bird" by Jamie Ford
(yes, very witty in a wicked sorta way)
2. Esther Avila submitted her entry
(sentimental and emotional, very good)
3. "You Say Monet, I Say Manet" by J.T. Ellison
(cute child-like mystery and fun conclusion)
4. "Every Hope and Dream" by SF Johnston
(ends with a shocking twist, heartwrenching)
5. "Too Well Illumined" by Zara Calvente
(creative writing and creative sleuthing)
Along with some of my personal favorites...
(poignant take on beauty and aging)
(sentimental, familial, emotional)
(emotionally stirring and disturbing)
(a mystery with a belly laugh conclusion)
(a macabre case of mistaken identity)
(satisfying tale of renewed romance)
(good sci-fi paranormal horror story)
(ribald yet tasteful, classic tale well told)
(mournful scene of grief, loss, and love)
(a well written tale of betrayal and revenge)
(powerfully painful coming of age story)
(sweetly told theme of passing-the-flame )
Well, it turns out that I liked quite a few of these stories. But now finally, the entry you've all been waiting for: "The Twin Lights of Life and Liberty" by me. Please tell me what you think in the comment section at The Clarity of Night blog. Thanks for reading!
It was a fun contest, and I was honoured to see that you included me among your favourites. The best part was for me was 'meeting' new people. It was also great to learn a little bit about the e-community in the blogosphere. (I am getting the lingo down.)
Looking forward to the next contest!
Thanks for linking to my story. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I am so glad Jason held that contest.
It was a great way to see some of the other talent out there as well as get to know some new writers.
I'm flattered that you included my story among your favorites. I enjoyed reading all the stories. :)
