Winners Announcement:

Honorable Mentions

Silver James | @SilverJames_
Mellanie says: Grammar and writing craft nerd that I am, I was immediately pulled into the scene by tight, succinct writing. Building tension hinted at a major conflict and plenty of action. Besides, wolves are sexy!

Bill Engleson
Mellanie says: I love the story concept, which suggests lots of conflict and danger. The ending hook made me want to read more! Watch out for those distracting dialogue tags, though. They pulled me out of the scene a little bit.

Stacy Bennett | @SBennettwrites
Mellanie says: Good characterization and conflict drew me into the scene right away. A couple of dialogue tags stood out and interrupted the flow, but the immediacy of the tension pulled me back in.

Week 154 Winner

Simon Abernathy

Mellanie says: Other than a misspelled word, the entry was clean and well-written. The scene opened and closed with good hooks, and the characters are compelling. Dialogue and actions are used very effectively for characterization and to show the dynamics of the relationship. Great job!


Congratulations SEVEN TIME WINNER Simon, Silver, Bill, and Stacy! Don't forget to claim your badges and display them with pride. You certainly earned it!
