Another week has begun for some of us! What an exciting week I've just had with monitoring the WEP challenge with Yolanda Renee. It was a mammoth effort, still ongoing. We've yet to choose a short-list of the 3 best entries to hand over to our Guest Judge, Donna Hole, who will put them in the order of Winner, Runner Up and Encouragement Award. This is the hardest part of WEP, especially this challenge as we received nearly 50 entries to read, comment on, promote, and finally judge. The winner will receive a $10 Amazon Gift Card and there will be a surprise gift decided by the numbers we load into random.org.
The entries have been amazing and those that participated have been blown away by the quality.
Halloween is usually our biggest roll up. How many are going to turn up in October with their creepy stories, photos and artwork?
Here is a sample of some of the entries for Part A where you had to share a setting that blew you away, then tell us why:
Angeline Chee from Cutting the Map shared why she loved this night shot of Singapore...
"I revel daily in the history and architectural marvels of England, always feeling regretful that Singapore had chosen to rid ourselves of many a heritage marker in order to build the modern city. At that moment, though, (watching the National Day Parade), the glitz and glamour of our Central Business District (CBD) stopped my heart."
Part B asked that you shared something you created yourself:
Michelle Wallace from Writer in Transit shared a fantastic shot of Moyos, South Africa's first building on a pier then wrote a flash fiction using that setting:
Faceless people, nameless people… aboard the conveyor belt of tourist living.
A new day.
The same routine.
A replica of countless moments.
A hot glare is the answer. It rivals the blazing midday sun, silences any further comments from the older sibling.
That’s it kid. Take the ten.
A story of skeleton beams and life before sand sculptures.
Now that would keep you riveted.
But look, the tide is turning.
- Will you join us for a creep-fest in October?
