Sorry, couldn't resist, that's my favorite comic of all time.

What a cool contest, what a strong field, and I love that it is ultimately about the survival of StoriesSpace, and the continued camaraderie of all the writers here. I met a couple new writer friends here, and got into some extended conversations with others I'd not talked to much before. So here's to the writing community here, and to the hard work and skill of everyone who entered. Frankly, the strength of those early entries (I'm looking at you Verity) is what pushed me, and I'm sure many others, to do my best.

Also, HUGE thanks to Molly, who did so much verifying and clarifying, and kept us all up to date on who had entered. This would not have happened without the talented, hard-working, red-haired siren of Stories Space, Molly.

This really made my weekend, everyone. Thanks!

Drinks are on me! And while no alcohol is allowed in the coffee shop, I hear a rumour that Ping is passing out limoncello shots from the trunk of his car out in the parking lot. It's that 1979 Monkey-sh1t green Ford Pinto out there. No, wait, that's my car!

Congrats Everyone! There is nothing like a wonderful storytelling event to bring people together around the campfire.

OOH, scary campfire stories. Next competition theme perhaps?

Thanks Molly and everyone else involved with the competition.

We have been suffering under a heatwave that appears to be ready to break tomorrow. The highs have been in the 90sF/30sC degrees. When it gets down into the 80s/20s we may have a break. Rough on the little critters.

Iced tea with a blast of limoncello solves all heat problems. I left a pitcher of this good mix in the fridge.

Lovely Fryday to you all!

Ping, is that birds changing their songs story really a thing in Canada? Is it an actual story there? What if birds started to speak? What if it turns out they can talk, but they're really boring? They mostly talk about worms and twigs.

Unfamiliar with the song change but I know people who have changed their tune.

Happy Birthday, Verbatim. I still like Verbie The Love Buggar. Happy B’Day to hymn too.

Boysenberry mead, please.

Okay. Okay. I’m not a Tik Toker, but this lady and her hubby make me laugh. She’s from Montreal but I think they live in Boston. Parents of two. She sings and is an ‘influencer’. He’s a lawyer. He never shows his face but is known as the Real Indian Dad. They both of Indian descent but he uses a very thick Indian accent for his character. It started out as him heckling her off camera while she played piano and sang, while preparing a future video post.

Sooo sooo funny.

RID: Did you hear about the two guys that stole a calendar?

DM: No

RID: They each got six months.


Iced tea, please. Some seed for the bird man of Colorado.

New story idea: any of you Canadians heard of a huge population of songbirds there changing their tune? Apparently white throated sparrows started singing a shorter song - "Oh sweet Cana, Cana, Cana" instead of "Oh sweet Canada, Canada, Canada."

WHAT IF the birds had something more nefarious in mind!?

How aboot this, eh?

This comp has been a favourite of mine, the friendliness and community is so strong here and that brings out the best in us all.

How dare you! We will have nun of that. Second place is first place looser, and so on. Win at all costs. evil4

Darn upload limitations. I have a funny penguin gif where one smacks the other to the ground. I wanted to juxtapose the tuxedo’d pairing. Penguins & Nuns. I sense a very hot South African catholic school story in the making or a very chilly one from Antarctica. But I don’t think there are any catholic colonies on the big berg.

Good comp. I concur. At the very least, we learned that Verbs was raised by wolves.

Editor's Pick Pine

“Boy oh boy, it’s a hot one,” my wife exclaimed as she gave the sweating pitcher one last swirl before pouring each of us a glass. Exhausted and relieved, I sipped my iced tea while slowly rocking in the hammock of our screened porch. I savored my reward while my dog and I watched the movers close the back of their truck before driving away. Knuckles then curled up beneath me and fell asleep....

Why We Don't Eat Our Young

The Boy Able to take advantage of a much-ballyhooed birthday gift, my son successfully completed an introductory snorkeling class. We then went shopping. Standing at the mercy of an empty big box sporting goods store, not comforted by the proper diving specialty shop we should have visited, I quickly realized my mistake. The sales associate was young and kind, but ultimately...
