I am happy to have this week’s Tuesdaytales Judgemasters take over:
Writer, teacher, executive assistant, and believer that coffee is a moral imperative.
JUDGE’S COMMENTS: Here are my picks for yesterday’s Tuesday Tales. Great response and some absolutely fantastic stories–many strong contenders. Poor Santa never had it so rough. Or so good.
HONORABLE MENTIONS!* Alissa Leonard @lissajean7. For a clever unveiling of where Santa gets his toys (though my daughter is now a bit flummoxed over her Barbie dolls).* Jeffrey Hollar @klingorengi . This story had me hooked at its title, and Santa’s raw courage sealed the deal. Go Santa, GO!!! awesome.* Lisa McCourt Hollar @jezri1. For the best line out of ALL the stories: “He uttered a hungry HO.” Oh my word. Hysterical.
& Heir to a 1st chapter edit
* Laura Jamez
@LEJamez . Perfectly and beautifully written, this story wrenched my heart right out. It’s a vision that will haunt its readers’ dreams for a long time to come. Gorgeous, tragic, and well-deserving of the win.

The Night Before Christmas
Christmas Eve and no one in the department had expected a call quite like this. Smoke still billowed out of the top floor of the apartment block, yet falling masonry no longer crashed to the pavement below. Once the building was deemed safe to enter, the firemen made their way to the top of the building putting out small fires on route.
Turning the last corner the firemen were faced with a sight that would haunt their dreams. Injured Reindeer littered the floor, a large man in a red suite sat weeping in what was left of a broken sleigh.
@lejamezEveryone spread the word of the HMS, the winner
@LEJamez and @postupak REBEKAH for the awesome judgemastery!
AS WINNER! Laura you may claim your first chapter edit by sending it to my email stevie(dot)mccoy(at)gmail(dot)com, I look forward to viewing your work!
Remember there is no TUESDAYTALES for the next 2 weeks… each Tuesday lands on a holiday, CHRISTMAS and NEWYEARS! In place of this Holiday 2 week span, I have decided to have a Tuesdaytales 2 week entry period, of which there will be a prompt available for you to enter your story to with up to 500 words extended count and it will close for entry on January 2nd. You are welcome to either enter your story in the comments per usual or just enter your link to your story from your blog. Thank you!
