A mysterious object is falling/falls/fell from the sky.
...is closed. As of 5/31/12, I will not be officially receiving any more of the responses to Prompt #1 and that's okay, because the response was actually quite satisfying. And this is only the first prompt!
Now, per our club's design, ye Knights of Qwerty will be sent attached files, including the works of all other Knights that submitted for month of May. You are encouraged to send them a short one to two page response, if you wish, including your likes, dislikes, and suggestions for improvement.
1. Be creative and constructive.
2. Be considerate and courteous.
3. Be sincere and civil.
Here are the titles and their authors for Prompt #1, as well as their e-mails, so you can send them an e-mailed private response. Excerpts from each of the pieces will be quoted below each title as soon as I am done reading them all. Here you guys are, ordered by last name.
Just a reminder here and then I'll do it at the end, Prompt #2 will be posted on edit: June 6th. Please feel free to suggest any prompts that you would like to see used. Prompts can be anything from a short premise, a quote, a short video, etc.
Greed by Dallas Allan
" Mariana remained standing near the kitchen doorway with the diamond clutched in her hands tight enough to cause the edges to cut into her palms."
Patagonia by Sean Barnes
"Luckily, anyone dumb enough to let slip my participation in “non-sanctioned pest control” would know better than to incur the heavy fines for using a non-contracted exterminator. Phaeton Co made us all into criminals...."
The Nights Sky by Zach Martin
" He was surprised how fine the dirt was, almost as though it were fresh powder snow."
Fall by Valerie Mills
" No sooner does it land/ do the paws of man and beast / trample /crush and stomp/ away the crispness and crunch."
One Night on Magnolia Drive by Chelsea Marie Orland
"...I do believe there’s things that we don’t know about. I’ll leave those up to God and the government."
Scorch Marks by Rachel Kathleen Payne
"The cave was cool and damp and lovely; much better than the sterile cold of my parents’ house."
Lord Darkness by Matt Pierce
"Little Hergie was at that difficult age when asking questions is easier than thinking critically."
Heroes of the Sea by Rose Pierce
"This particular sea cucumber, like most sea cucumbers, does not care about how gross you think she is. In fact, she thinks she is quite lovely. Her spines are soft and bouncy, her tentacle fronds are long and flowing, and her esophagus is in grade A working condition; honestly, what more could one ask for?"
Prompt #2 will be posted on edit: June 6th.
