Usually within a few days of announcing a new contest, the entries begin backing up outside the Towers, we lower the drawbridge, raise the portcullis, and waive them in. But it’s a moat point: entries have been scant for Reigning Cats and Dogs. We are not going to pursue this doggedly if the cat’s got your tongue, and we are withdrawing the contest. We’ll announce something totally different by the end of the month, before his Moiness (that would be moi) crosses the pond in search of real estate should November elections yield an unacceptable outcome.
Thanks to all (one) of you who submitted an entry: we’ll send all (one) of you a gift card to Starbucks if you will send your physical address. Let is know if you’d like to share your composition on line anyway, and we will be happy to comply.
Send suggestions for a prompt that will inspire to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our next contest will be a real cliff-hanger!
