Congrats to all the shortlisted.

Grownup, don't know you, but well done on having both your submissions in the shortlist (bit greedy, though! ;D).

And Jen13, what a comeback. :)

Hope we can have a read of them all soon.

Once the final place winners are announced, they'll all be made available for a read.

And again, there were so many great entries. I did not envy the judges who had to narrow it down.

Didn't make it this time but oh well if there were over a hundred entries not too bothered by that. It was a fun challenge anyway :D

Exactly, Inseriousity. One of the judges told me she wished she could have put more through as there were many gems, but there had to be a cutoff on numbers.

Now, go enter one of our (non-prize ::)) flash/short/poetry challenges  ;)

Congratulations to all that made it through. It was a fun challenge and it will be fun to see what others did with the same prompt.

I enjoy writing prompts. It's like watching "Chopped" on the Food Network, when chefs are given the same basket of ingredients and each comes up with something extraordinary.

Congratulations to everyone who entered (sometimes that's the hardest part) , and especially to the short list folks.

Can't wait to read 'em.

No need to apologise bri. Part of the challenge was cutting words down to be able to add more information so it helps in that respect :D
