All of your stories were awesome sauce and made the judgemasters job super tough.
Don’t miss the tuesdaytales extended edition notes at the bottom of this post for next week.
Please give a round of thanks to this weeks Tuesday Tales Judge:
She is procrastinator, Writer of awesome sauce, Drinker extraordinar and This weeks Judgemaster!
Best Use of word Flabbergasted:
“Flabbergasted I strained at the vines holding my naked body.”
I think telling a 100 word erotic sacrificial wedding story from a womans perspective is pretty ballsy to say the least. I could see Harlequin picking up the extended version for sure.
Now on to our Winner….. dun DUN DUN!
Per the words of the judgemaster:
The reason why I chose this one is because I got the entire picture in one read but couldn’t stop myself from reading it multiple times. I pictured it so well in my head. The characters had great voice and that is quite an achievement with 100 words! I loved the dialogue and that he let the characters tell the story. ‘You grew up in Toledo!’ lol
Jeffery HollarPoet, father, husband and Klingon/Ferengi hybrid mix. Voracious reader (been at it for 45 years) and writer of paranormal satire.
The Best Laid Plans
Tanaka stood amidst the smoldering rubble of the Puakoahanaliakua Banquet Hall.
“HOW did this happen again?”
“Pooka and me just figured fire juggling would offer the haoles an authentic, uniquely Polynesian experience here. And -”
“Three points, David. Firstly, we call Pooka the village idiot for reasons. Secondly, YOU are a haole. You grew up in Toledo! Thirdly, burning my business to the ground is NOT a uniquely Polynesian experience!!”
“Hey, it’s WAY harder than it looks. Besides, Pooka set the drapes on fire, NOT me!”
A flabbergasted Tanaka roared, “You did this INSIDE the hall?!?”
“Did I forget that part before?”
