  What a wonderful variety of stories inspired by our “light” prompt.  We are impressed by the never-ending creativity of this group of writers!   So many of the stories were thought-provoking and well-written, and we had quite a challenge narrowing down our favorites.  We particularly noticed that there were several stories dealing with climate change.  This recurring theme inspired us to create a new contest for everyone.  We look forward to hearing your stories based on this timely topic. 

Thanks to each of you for another highly successful contest!

Yay, time to get the thinking caps on. Time to tell a tale or two, and find a perfect image to make our stories feel complete ??

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
