Best Ending Words: @jezri1 -Lisa McCourt Hollar- I really enjoyed this story, it left me with an accomplished feeling after reading it. Great ending remark as she aimed her phaser, “Game Over.” Everyone should pop on over and read her story.
Being confusing never felt so right: @JonathonVolkmer “It dreams of arms.” I’d have to say this entry deserves kudos because I read over it several times and then read it again… It was just so interesting and yet I wasn’t sure if it was a cybertronics baby waiting for its moment to take over the world or something else entirely… still it intrigued me and wanted to know more.
Rebecca Clare Smith
writer of urban fantasy (hoping to get noticed) &
her county’s youngest lollipop lady.
Fluorescent life’s about reading, writing, 5 cats & 2 Westies.
The story was creepy and had bloody letters… And my favorite use of the word jaundice in a sentence.
I smiled, tracing my finger through the red essence and redrawing the letter whole. It dripped a little but that didn’t matter as long as it was legible.
She stared up at me, silly girl. I wouldn’t have had to do it if she’d stayed quiet.
I don’t like noisy pets.
Her mother would be upset with what she’d done when I sent my note. After all, it isn’t hard to listen and not to disobey.
But she’d screamed at me. Something about seeing the world through sickly, jaundiced eyes. I sighed.
Maybe my next pet would be better behaved.
Rebecca go fetch your badge of awesomeness at the top while tuesdaytalians speak of your writerly prowess far and wide!

We had a lot of great first 100 words!
I am currently still working on an awesome new nano badge for Tuesdaytales
so the winner of Nano challenges will just have to wait until its finished to claim it. Feel free to use a tuesdaytales badge until otherwise notified!
Best starting sentence: Ralph Rudd “I’m watching the city burn.” It raises a whole lot of questions and makes you want to read more in only a few sentences. Great job!
Winner of NANO first 100 words:
Check out her nano page here:
Leteh surveyed the forest from his perch atop La Capilla sin Misericordia. Little had changed in the 327 years since he’d been imprisoned there, encased in stone by the same demons he had once called brothers. The trees had grown taller, and the chapel beneath him had begun to decay from disuse. His very presence dissuaded humans from exploring the wild tangle of trees that surrounded the building; no one would dare enter it. They called it a dark church, cursed for centuries by evil, and they stayed away. Leteh was glad; he didn’t like humans and their insipid curiosity.
First off you know where Leteh is and makes you wonder what he is surveying then BAM you find out it’s the place that once was his stone cell and that he has lived for a very long time with a grudge. Who doesn’t want to read more?
As this is the month of NANOWRIMO, the next couple of #tuesdaytales will have little tributes and difference ways of sharing your journey to 50k so please come on back next tuesday and Thank you everyone for participating, they were all awesome sauce!
