Don’t panic – I’m still here but I must offer my sincere apologies for not announcing the winner of the Six Word Story Challenge on 1st July. Once you’ve accepted my first apology, I’d like to offer a second one for not running the challenge at all for the following two weeks. The only excuse I can offer for this extreme slackness is that life got in the way for a while there.
Anyway, I’ve given real life the heave-ho and I’m back!
I’m going to bring the 1st July edition to a close today and then post a new challenge as usual on Saturday in the hopes that we can forget this sorry mess ever happened …….
Many years ago, in a galaxy far, far away I left you the prompt discontent which was a summary of my feelings following the Brexit vote in the UK. I loved reading your stories that week and I’ve enjoyed reading through them all over again today as I counted up the votes. One of the things I like the most about the way the winner is chosen is that my personal favourites are not guaranteed to make the top three. I get to see what stories resonate with you all.
I’m afraid I will have to count the votes as they stand today rather than how they stood on Friday 1st July, but even so, here are your winners:
First place was a tie between:
PatrickSponaugle with his story ‘Everything seemed the same. It wasn’t.’
KatieComeBack with her story ‘Bored, lonely, exhausted…she kept eating.’
Second place goes to:
KirstWrites with her story ‘I don’t belong here any more.’
Third place goes to:
trE with her story ‘You’ve made your bed, lie there.’
Please feel free to download and use your badge of honour from the below selection while I scurry away and draft Saturday’s new challenge.
Until next time,
