There were no winners! :o

Mia got 1 hit. Will, February and Arianna got 2 hits each.

A new Unfogging will be up later on for the game next Sunday! (Yes, that is Sunday. It was rescheduled!)

Re: Book Review: Wild Bird

I just finished Wild Bird and am so glad Iverian wrote about it in such a way that my interest, my curiosity, was piqued. I started reading it this morning and was very reluctant to put it down midday -- and joyfully picked it up again to finish. Wow. Such a wonderful and truthful book; while at fir...

Re: Flash Fiction

dice, arrow, ship.

Mat looked lugubriously at the small objects in front of him. “Time to toss the dice” he announced to the rest of his shipmates. He did, and it was sixes. The ship quivered and shook, and took off like an arrow, heading North. [43 words]

Re: January Prompt: New Beginnings

New beginnings? Ha, let's just have some of the same, but more! Clearing shelves and boxes has sometimes led me to get rid of stuff that I later on end up reacquiring. Purchasing books, in particular, to restock what was deemed not needed in a move, is a great learning experience.
