The voting will not be open all week, so get your reading done early and cast your votes by 11:45pm on Thursday. Still no eliminations this week.
Don’t forget to drop a note to your fellow writers to let them know they are appreciated. If it’s an offsite blog and you have trouble with commenting, feel free to share your comments here and we’ll pass them along. In fact, I encourage you to share some public thoughts below with the community. Let’s talk about what we read, together.

We love it when our Embers write, but we also need the community to come together and read what’s being submitted. Even if you didn’t have time to write this week, please take a few minutes to read and encourage your friends to read as well. Share our fire! #govoteflames

  4. @skyllairea – I didn’t want to reblog and comment on tumblr, since you mentioned you’ve been unable to comment back (which makes me think I’m doing it wrong). Hopefully you’ll come by and see this.

    I llike that Echo is keeping a diary in defiance of the rules of Red Colony. I find Belinda a bit worrisome, she seems like one of those people with a low tolerance for change and open-mindedness. That thing she tells Echo about the colonists being alive while Echo is dead is pretty creepy. Good writing. I’m still really curious where it is going.
