Apologies for the delay.
It's number four! - my favourite number, and the theme I've arrived at after much seesawing is:


I hope that fires the imagination in some way.

Closing date: 27th November.
No word limit. Short or long or something in-between.


Winner: Everpain

Thanks for choosing me Sib.

Although I likely only won due to a disturbing lack of contestants this time around. Given the variety such a topic, I really expected a more solid effort.

I do, however, appreciate any recognition, and understand that those who chose not to enter had their reasons.

I will start a topic for the next comp shortly. As a heads up, I will attempt to critique all entries as thoroughly as I am able (as opposed to the usual 'not bad' sentence of mild mannered praise).

Eek! I had an idea for this well over a week ago but never got it transferred from head to paper, well pixels, it was a seasonal story as well (but not a good one!). So sorry :(

My excuse is I had a lot of uni work to do for an assignment I handed in on Friday and then I had some work to do on tiding up my blog and getting the next entries together which is also for my uni work.

Given the subject, I would have expected more entries. Especially since some people have said they would enter, and haven't...
