I can't believe I'm still in the running!

Melina at Absolute Write posted the voting results on the 21st. We lost Rhush this week. She is a talented writer; I'm sorry to see her go.
Six contestants left:
Blue Texas
William Haskins

I'm just finding time to check both the winners and the theme. I'm already losing two days that I could have worked on this theme.

Jenna posted this week's theme. OMG! Hope! Another theme in which I have way too many ideas. Worse part is, I don't know if I'll make the deadline with just recently moving in with Mom and taking care of her. Here's hoping!

Congrats to our Stupendous Six for making it to week 5. Your next assignment has arrived.
This week's theme is:


In 1,400 words or fewer, give us a story that will leave us with a feeling of hope.
As usual, it may be fiction or nonfiction, poetry or short story, etc.
Deadline: Sunday, May 29th, 11:59 p.m. ET.

Make me smile. Leave a comment...
