But without further ado, let's announce the winner! Allison Leighann, congratulations! I hope you will enjoy this read, and if you want to gift that to someone else then please feel free! Let me know the name and email you would like this sent to, and it will be added to the list of winners and be out at the end of the month.
Allison entered with a creative piece that continued the prompt I left, which I will leave below since I'm blogging from Stacie's house and don't have access to the many promotional photos I've collected:
Her concentration waned as she stared at the blank canvas and her eyes wandered to the shadow she had seen before in the day. As she fixed her eyes where the shadow had existed only hours earlier, she could've sworn that the shadow she'd seen had the specific outline of him. But even as the slight desperation in her brain wanted it to be so, her logic told her that there was no way that it could've been. He'd been gone for two years. Two whole years. The fact that she was even still thinking about him, seeing him in overplayed song lyrics, old memories, and now, apparently, shadows, was something that she really needed to get a handle on. Old lyrics were one thing, but to miss someone so sharply that it invaded everyday observations such as a shadow on a wall - that was borderline fanatical.Congratulations!
