A Must Read designation does NOT mean an entry is necessarily better than the other entries. It means that entry clicked with me in some way in that moment I read it.
This week has some awesome entries. Very imaginative and creative. Some are stepping out into new areas, just as the challenge was intended to do.
The order appearing is the order in which the entry was received.
GL below stands for the reading Grade Level. Harry Potter is a GL of around 5. Tolkien is around GL 6.5.
Passive Sentence percentage is included as Active Sentences are considered the preferred form of writing by most editors and publishers. Active moves the story along. Passive is not always bad. Sometimes a story works that way, perhaps through the language of a person or the type of story. Even then, keep the percentage low.
The Prompt for the Challenge was:
January 22, which is Friday’s date, is Celebration of Life Day.
- Take a moment in your life of which you would celebrate and use that as inspiration for a no more than 750 word story, but don’t let that stop you if you are enjoying yourself and the story is going well. (SUGGESTED)
- If you are not doing a series, write the story as if the characters were animals living in the roles of humans. An example would be the policemen might be German Shepherds and other Police type dogs. (REQUIRED if not in the middle of writing a series.) OR
- Use the same experience for a story in one of the following Genres: Science Fiction, Fantasy, Thriller. (Required if not using the above.)
Kim Russell (Writing in North Northfolk)
This could be an occurrence in many other countries, and I imagine some women would prefer it that way. 762 words, 5.2 GL, and 2% passive sentence structure. @kim88110
The Perfect Illusion-Part 3
Nandini Bharadwaj (Pages That Rustle)

A Special Day to Celebrate
Clarence Holm (PrairieChat) Must Read
This week clearance gives a wonderful story based on true events in the style of using animals instead of people.

by Ritu (But I Smile Anyway…) Must Read
Somehow think our Ritu would know the viewpoints of the can’t in situation like this. Her imagination just keeps showing no limits. 760 words, 4.4 GL, and 5% passive sentence structure. @PhantomGiggler
Bill Engleson (Writings) Must Read
This week Bill brings a great story humor, satire, you name it it’s in here is. A great take on how some people view themselves some of you may like it so you may not but it’s all good, right?. 748 words, 5.7 GL, and 3% passive sentence structure.

Teresa pulled in the animal with the thriller with the Boab tree in a very um, uh, smashing way. 865 words, 3.8 GL, and 6% passive sentence structure. @TeresaSmeigh

Florence steps outside her genre comfort zone this week with a Fantasy piece. She says she started in one direction but ended up someplace else. 795 words, 5.5 GL, and 12% passive sentence structure. @FTTHum
