Mid-Week Blues-Buster Week 2.21 WINNERS
Sorry for the delay in posting.. technical difficulties & all that…
Anyway, Judge Ruth Long did the job & did it well.
So speaketh Judge Ruth;
Six strong stories! So hard to choose top picks. That’s a terrific problem to have.
Jim Locket – The Ballad of Frogtown
Such a fun read and great word play.
Cecilla – Last Man Standing
Beautifully lyrical and powerful.
Alan Young – My Eyes; My Mai Tai
Hilarious read and killer closing lines.
Alex Brightsmith – Tyja
So much tantalizing world and character packed into this.
Mona Bliss – Patti Smith’s Shoes
Puking on Patti’s shoes – enough said.
Eric Martell – Jimmy Fuckin’ McKinley
Great vernacular and nostalgia!
Again, all great stories but now I’m down to the picks. Gah!
Third Place – Alan Young – My Eyes; My Mai Tai
The unexpectedness of a story that focused mostly on snot done with style, wit, and a great last line.
Second Place – Eric Martell – Jimmy Fuckin’ McKinley
A story that gives us a peek into the possible backstory of the song was tons of fun and so well done.
First Place -Mona Bliss – Patti Smith’s Shoes
This piece mimicked the building tension and story of the song and had me both in suspense and laughing out loud.
Thanks to all of our readers & writers and thanks to Judge Ruth Long…
See you on Tuesday…
