  1. Nicola, I’ve been absent for many weeks of late but kept coming back intermittently when time permitted. I’ve enjoyed your challenge immensely, and your commitment has been superb. I’ve found it very difficult not to make a statement, rather than tell a story, as many others obviously have!!! I have been fortunate to be amongst the winners several times so maybe, once or twice, I got it right.

    Good luck in your new ventures, and thank you for a job well done.

    My time with this challenge is short-lived, but I have truly enjoyed participating in it and discovering a handful of wonderful one-liner stories. Thank you, Nicola, for the time and effort you have given to organizing this challenge and inspiring our muses to think of ways to make good use of six words.

    I wish you nothng but the best in your life and in all your future plans. 🙂

    And I finally got me one of those fancy badges, YAY~! Thank you very much~! ♥

    Sad to see you go.

    People quit blogging for a variety of reasons. Wishing you the best for the future.
