OK, mine's up.  More grimdark than lightheart, but I think it fits the brief.

Where are your stories, guys? Is the theme too hard or too boring for you? ;)

I normally read the theme, think "Nope, got nuthin'," and assume I won't write anything that month. But within a day or two there's usually something niggling away in my head. This time, I think I really got nuthin'. But that could be because I've got two other writing projects actively in progress, another out with betas, and another that I'm waiting to get back with requested revisions from the editors. So maybe my brain is just too overloaded this month.

That's mine up - I've attempted to target this at the female audience, but this is the first time I have done this, so any feed back from the good lady's on this forum will be appreciated. If it didn't make you laugh then I have failed :(

Although I'm personally happy with it and this is how I would start the book off - And I am actually thinking of putting this a side for a future project on a book called Berlynn Brown,  as I believe I can write a good comedy based on this character. If that's ok!!

Made my debut this month, with a story spiced with some Arabian Nights love - a bazaar, a magical lamp, and a wish-granting Djinn.

It was a challenge, but I think that's part of the purpose of having a contest such as this one. It pulls us out of our comfort zone, and hopefully we grow with it.

Hope you like it!  :)

By the way, the numbers of the rules are screwed up. Missing a couple of them! (Or was it on purpose, in order to convey some sort of secret message? *conspiracy theory brewing*)

My story is now up :) First time I have entered! The theme was a little unusual so I was surprised by how quickly an idea formed for me, and it's an idea I really like, too.  I'm glad I took the time out to write this because I had a lot of fun with it and I got to use a little inspiration from the year I spent living in Scotland. Only down point is this made me miss it even more.
Anyway, thanks for the opportunity! I think I will be entering more often :)

I'm up!  This one was a bit tough for me, so I hope you all think it turned out ok.  By the way, nice job Danielle Angeli...very mysterious!  I enjoyed reading yours quite a bit.

Yeah, I took some rules out that don't apply this month and forgot to change the numbers. :)

This month's theme was apparently a bit harder - if you still want to participate, be sure to make use of the weekend, the month's nearly over!

Thanks ladygreen! I also enjoyed reading yours. Loved how you interpreted the 'truth' theme, very well done :)

Phew, done for this month! Now I can enjoy having a read over the other entries, it was a tricky theme, looking forward to seeing how everyone else tackled it on my morning bus journey. :)
