    Default Twice Upon a Time Writing Contest

    Welcome back! I'm having one of those days where things I've thought or said or done keep returning to me. Serendipity? Boomerang moments? Deja vu? Fate?

    This is a contest for 500 twollars, since this is a tad obtuse. 100T for each contestant who chooses this option.

    Your task is to write about a meaningful moment in your life. I'm looking for the greater 'aha' moment, not just the details about the situation. Make me understand your epiphany as you felt it, but explain to me why you needed to learn the lesson you did. What I'm looking for is akin to blinding hindsight.

    As always, bonus points for candor and emotion I can feel.

    You may choose any style or genre of writing for your entry. Write me a letter, a poem, a short story, an essay. Just write. You're all talented people, and I'm sure that any entry would be worth my time.

    If this is too obscure, and you want some twollars anyway, just write me a love poem and put "plan B" in the subject line. lol Those folks will be eligible to win up to 200T, depending on how powerful and thought-provoking your poem is. 50T for each poem.

    If you're in the mood and wanna enter each option, go for it. I've had several pm's this week asking for me to do another contest, so this is your big excuse to write! The more entries the better - I will wish for everybody's participation.

    This contest will end, what is this, Saturday? Let's say it'll end Tuesday evening, 10pm Eastern. That should work.

    *This is me being flexible.

    Default lolol re sig!!!!

    when winter unfurled, yes, it's always a blur of sleet
    the spired icicles churned and stretched to a sun higher than god
    warming everything snowflake and skating rink
    i rubbed my hands, still frozen and proud in my new muff and,
    exhausted, I walked into an open baroque arch with thickest-wood, ajar
    it seemed like a church
    i lied down with silent thought and not praying
    as it was night and my hands were so cold, as
    my limp frame felt falling, like all those wet leaves i had kicked after tea
    and i rested there for a bit to my betterment.
    (all that bishops tipple)
    and i was truly thankful
    that there was an open inspiration in the broad snow of farnborough
    for a modest sheep like me.

    'my submission,

    LUC

    hmmm...making me think here..

    Baggage..oh boy..its a BIG problem ...UNTIL one realizes that at some point we have to take responsibilty for our own decisions and STOP blaming our parents for "screwing up our lives". When i did that, I knew I had "grown up" its sooo easy to blame someone else for our own mistakes and it was a HUGE step for ME to actually take control of MY life and realize that i was in control of MY decisions..MY thoughts ..MY values..of course this was years and years ago, and there were mis~steps along the way, but all in all...the lesson i learned was ...no one can MAKE you happy but yourself...oh yeah, you can BE happy with someone else ..but at the end of the day its all about how you feel about yourself! Live like you mean it!!

    Does this make any sense?? lol
    hope so ...cause its my "mantra"

    In that darkness of that doorway
    where I stood not long ago,
    I trembled and I faltered
    not knowing what to do.

    And in the darkest moment,
    I followed Alice through
    that fabled looking glass
    and stared back at myself.

    What I saw encouraged me
    and set me on a path
    to where I'd never been
    a place where fear was not

    So when I stepped back to my place,
    the darkness was no more
    a path had opened to my view
    and set me free to go
    I caught you a delicious bass.

    this is probably somethin some of you wont want to read about...its my own epiphany that there is life after death

    the night jodee passed on i remember feeling numb, not knowing exactly what reality was as we all know it...i sat in dan's car at his work , so he could return the car he borrowed to make it to the hospital...durin this time...i started feeling..things i wasnt ready to feel...things i wasnt ready to ask myself...but i did anyway...i just wanted to hold jodee one more time...to tell him yet again that i was proud of him...to see him get married...to see him have children...to see him become more famous than bill gates (ya i did think that) and while all these questions and thoughts went round and about in my head....all of a sudden it was all gone..there were no answers...there were no thoughts ...i went completely blank...then....i cried...and in the middle of my sobs...jodee came to me ...not where i could see him..but he was there...i felt him...i heard him say...mom, im okay...im with grampa (my grampa)...at that moment...i felt that he was telling me the truth...i could always tell when one of my kids lied to me..and i knew he wasnt lying to me now...and i just knew...sometimes we dont always know what were supposed to until we are ready...i didnt have a choice but to be ready for this...i know that there is life after death......

    love and peace, holli

    100T to both Brady and Holli for their heartfelt entries.

    And if I may say so, it is really nice to see some new faces in the creative corner. Thanks to all who have played this game!

    Amazing.
