Coming down the line


We’ve had a grand run with this contest, and seven finalists will transfer at the station at 6:09 this evening, where they will be given a fresh prompt and three days to be brilliant.

Anyone in particular you think should make the cut?  You have until five this afternoon to let the entire Moscow staff (that would be moi ) know your thoughts, as several of you have already. Thanks again to Tiffany for being our conductor for most of this sojourn.

See you tonight at the station!

    I have personally sent in my seven favorites, an eighth which has merit and my daughter’s two choices beyond my own. Rufia and I encourage each of you to let the staff and editor-in-chief your own favorite seven or so. We wish all of you who entered the best fortune to be among the finalists including both of us.

    I did not review all your stories/poems with favor, but I read each and everyone more than one time and gave my honest impressions of every single one as I have done in previous competitions. My applause is given to each of you, as well as my Rufia, who entered your stories/poems. To do so is a courageous act.

    We now see in the photo above that time travel has been proven possible since today is Friday, November 13 (o,my!) and yet the recently married, Mrs. Cramer, was married on November 30, but has returned to the now. Who would have thought, but aren’t weddings magical? My congratulations to the newly weds.

    Heads up that these comments are coming up as Parisianne’s, not the host Thorn, even though these posts are obviously Thorn’s. Funny!

      these are purely Parisianne. I would remind everyone that I am not a censor; I am an editor. (My daughter was married October 30th, not November 30th…or perhaps time travel is real?) I only delete comments (and there is certainly no evidence of that here) that are mean spirited, or degrade someone based on racial, sexual, etc. ethnic stereotype.

    • Parisianne Modert says:

      Sorry, Laura, but my comments are my own comments. My point was to point out the editing error hopefully in a humorous way.

      • Parisianne Modert says:

        I do wish the newly weds a joyous future, this site success in business, the authors good writing. I encourage intelligent input rather than social chit chat (with one exception). I want to believe in time travel, but the evidence as to whether it is possible or not is an unsettled debate. I applaud the lack of censorship on this site. Most publishing sites would censor my stories/poems and my comments.
