September Round up, and a new prompt

Well now - there's some interesting reading afoot as a result of the September challenge. Thanks to all who participated. If you haven't had a chance to read each contributor's offering, take some time to do so and to comment thereupon. Remember, part of the remit of the Wordsmiths is to offer opinion, so if there's something that jangles your nerves or strokes heavenly chords of enjoyment in your well-being, then tell the author!

Let's get to the round-up then, shall we?

Mojo - gets the prize for coming in 'pre-first'

- coming in second, with a little night music.

Farrago rocks the bronze with a half twisting gainer.

Dave to You started a blog JUST to write his story. That? Is awesome.

Dr. Err
chimes in at precisely the right time.

Cravey's on target.

Don cheated (but I'm including his story here anyhow in case someone wants to help him get to a 500-word max) in a story of idle youth.

The Only Daughter serves up hot buttered wry.

Tiff picks last place this month.

Well done, people, and thanks.


This month's picture prompt is courtesy of Deb Richardson, a Kentucky blogger, artist, book lover, and taker-of-this-picture:

What's it telling you? Tell us by 31 October in 500 words or less, won't you?.


Dave to You said...

Here's mine.
Happy October to all.

Dave to You said...

Here's another. I'm done and I won't look at the picture anymore this month. Well...maybe a peek.

Dave - lookit you go! Hey man, submit as many as you want - it's fun to take a few takes at a subject.

Might be a fun challenge - everyone do 2. :)

Okay, it took a while, but I finally came up with something...

It looks like downtown Cullowhee, NC, to me. On some special day.

done and done.
and late.
and less than fashionable.
