Update!  Please go here to see the most recent post for our story.  Thanks!


Well, another week has passed and I would like to update you on a few changes.  First of all, I am extending the deadline for submissions; instead of having them due on Fridays, they are now due on Saturdays.  Also, I am getting ready to leave on vacation, and I won’t be back until July 16th.  I am not sure if I will have access to the internet while I am gone, so the deadline for new story lines will be July 18th.  This gives everyone three entire weeks to come up with something amazing!  I am looking forward to reading your submissions when I get back.  I should have dozens to read by then!  I hope anyway!  😉

Now to announce our weekly winner!  Congratulations to Randstein who has won for a third week in a row!  You’re on a roll!  If you missed reading about him last week, Randstein writes short fiction in order to send a message about life. He mainly writes for the purpose of becoming a better writer and believes that his readers are a critical link to that process. Randstein plans to publish an anthology of his best works, and he has recently started writing a new series of short stories. I would like to encourage every one of my readers to take a look at his page here.  Randstein caught my attention early on after I joined WordPress, and so I asked him if I could do a short Bio page for him.  If you are interested in reading that post, go here.  He is a wonderful writer and really pours his heart out when he writes.  This is his third winning submission:

I looked back over my shoulder at the ship wreck that was once the playground of my dreams, then followed the footprints into the jungle. A small well-worn path wound its way through the dense undergrowth. I felt compelled to follow the prints into the dark canopy, as sounds of distant birds and unknown animals beckoned like sirens to enter the darkness of the jungle.

IMPORTANT!!!  To view the full story in its entirety, go here or for full submission rules, go here.

Thank you Tessa and D, for participating once again.  I really love reading your story lines and I look forward to reading more.  Don’t forget, you have until July 18th this time!

  1. Hi Michelle! I don’t know what to say but I’m happy my paragraph made it. I’m really in to this story and hope other writers will continue to add their inputs. I want to try to bring attention to the story to get more people so I would like to reblog this to the Survivors blog and also do a post on my page as well. The time off is a perfect time to recruit, I hope. 🙂 If this is ok with you, please let me know. Have a great vacation! – Daniel

  2. I am glad that you are committed to the cause and I would love for you to reblog this as many times as you want. 🙂 Thanks for always taking the time to send in your ideas and I will be missing you and everyone else over this next month. Hopefully I will be able to post from time to time. I will be traveling just about everyday, so I will have to see if time allows for blogging. Take care! ~M
