gossamer results

Four  entries for gossamer, in order of appearance:

This tingling at the tips of my fingers by Pooka
Containment by John Dutterer
Unclean by yesleklb
The metal bands chimed by Joe Cool

And now, from RubeRad …

My favorite was The metal bands chimed from Joe Cool, who found a gossamer moment in what might otherwise be seen as a clinicial, scientific exercise of tagging and releasing. I especially enjoyed the image of the bird escaping from a hard nylon mesh to a softer, gossamer net of caring hands — certainly better than escaping from the frying pan to the fire, which is what you’ve done, Joe Cool, as you now have to give us a word for next week, and judge what we come up with!

(RubeRad remarked on each entry here.)

Congratulations, Joe Cool!  You get to pick this week’s word prompt (please post as a comment below).  You also get to select a winner among this week’s entries.

Thank you to everyone for sharing your gossamer thoughts.  Please consider writing another 200 this week, and don’t forget to invite others!  Also, the comments for gossamer entries are still open if you’d like to offer feedback.

gray results

Five  entries for gray, in order of appearance:

I want to forget a photo by Joe Shlabotnik
Would someone mind writing about waking up one morning by Willow
A Southern Melodrama: the Director’s Cut by John Dutterer
Wrung of every last drop by Peregrine
Grey is the Color of Between by RubeRad

And now, from Amy W …

Winner is: RubeRad’s Grey is the Color of Between.

RubeRad couldn’t let that pass without nodding at another entry:

I demand a recount!  I’m pretty sure Joe Shlabotnik’s I want to forget a photo should have won. It was so haunting, I didn’t even want to submit anything …

Thank you, RubeRad – we’ve pinned a second-place ribbon on Joe Shlabotnik’s entry.  Congratulations to both writers!  RubeRad, you get to pick this week’s word prompt and select a winner among this week’s entries.

feverish results

Five feverish entries competed this week.  In order of appearance:

Pennant Feverish, Perhaps by John Dutterer
Feverish beavers swirling around and around by Sam W.D.
Car, baby, highway by Amy W.
Feverish by Ninjasushirat
About a week after the birth of our first by Ruberad

And now, from Pooka …

Amy W.’s Car, baby, highway is this week’s winner with a frantic thread of chaotic dodges and spins that almost stammer feverish on every line. That was a good one for sure!  (Pooka remarked on each entry here.)

Congratulations, Amy W!  You get to pick this week’s word prompt (please post as a comment below).  You also get to select a winner among this week’s entries.
