My heartfelt thanks go out to the staff of The Weekly Knob and kudos to Eric for his win as well. I just finished reading all the stories and I see how hard it was to choose — lots of great writing from talented people.
I’ve never done a writing prompt challenge like this before and loved it — I learned first hand what a great service TWK provides by giving writers these prompts. The story seemed to just take off and lead me where it needed to go, and the picture was the door that opened the way.
Be well, everybody.
