    Tuesday Tales WINNER 37!


    Challenge #37

     By entering, every contestant agrees to shamelessly promote and praise the winner on twitter.

    For all discussions about this challenge use hash tag #TuesdayTales

    I’d like to take the time to say hello to some new faces!!!

    @phoenixlavan @angelicadawson @kimmydonn @postupak

    Give them a warm fuzzy pat on the back! Feel the flashy love!

    I am happy to have this week’s Tuesdaytales Judgemasters take over: 

    Margaret C McNulty


    Writer of historical romance and Greek myths reinvented,

    Marvel lover & flash fictioneer. Don’t just follow – say hello!

    UK ·


    Bob Mahone (@Computilizer)

    I was really taken by what Bob did with the prompts.  They were embedded visually in the structure of his entry as well as running throughout his theme and the plotline of his story.  Really inventive. He therefore wins BEST USE OF SECRET WORD.

    Kimberley Gould (@kimmydonn)

    I loved the way Kimberley created a whole alternate world and mythology in just a few words.  Her verb choices beautifully underscored her adjectives painting a strong picture of this fantasy moment.

    Stacey Bennett-Hoyt (@Rowanwolf66)

    I like the way Stacey echoed the movement of the train’s clickety-clack in her own varied sentences structures and the evocative language she uses in her story: “lightning erupts from charcoal clouds, coiled strings of violet power.”




    Jonathon Volkmer

    Dream on, but don’t expect them all to come true.

     Judges Notes:

    “Jonathan’s story jumped out at me because it captured my imagination and left me wanting more. In just a few choice sentences he establishes character, a sense of scene and place and an atmosphere of anticipation.  There is a great sense of suspense and tension with an ending that could also be a beginning.”


    “Call it God, call it fate, call it inevitable synergy – ladies and gentleman, call it whatever you damn well please.”

    He leaned forward, lowering his voice.

    “The tracks are no longer converging. They have converged. We have a confirmed Singularity event.”

    “So the experiment was successful?” The asker and speaker spoke with disturbing synchronicity, word for word.

    “Yes. I can do that all night. TrueBlue proprietary computers can now simulate every living human mind to statistical perfection.”

    The CEO smiled as they absorbed the implications.

    “I know. Marketing just got much easier.”

    The others did the math. They smiled, too.

    100 Words

     Everyone spread the word of  the honorable mentions, @JonathonVolkmer   and  @charitygirlblog  for the awesome judgemastery!

    I would also like to invite our winner @JonathonVolkmer  to be a judge for next Tuesdaytales on May 1st , please let me know if your available 🙂

    Thanks for the nod! I most certainly accept the offer of Judgemastership, and do hereby swear and avow that I will probably not misuse it.

    Oh, and big congratulations to the HMs! Our Judge had a lot of solid options, and I think she chose well!
