January | Week Four | Reading List and Voting Poll

Good morning, Flames,
We are down to week four’s submissions on the Utopia project.
We ended the voting last week with Missflyer and Skyllairae tied. This week is for all the marbles and there are no JFF entries, so we will limit your vote to one. I have to say, our writers really had me sweating it yesterday. When I went to be we had zero submissions for week four. I was so happy to see your emails in my inbox this morning, you have no idea. I’m excited to read what was submitted so let’s get to it.

This list is made up of submissions written for the prompt – Utopia: Search for Meaning.

Title: Happy New Year part 4

The voting will not be open all week, so get your reading done early and cast your votes by 11:45pm on Thursday. We can only have one winner this week, make your vote count.
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!



About t.s.wright

Writer, reader, casual photographer, nature-lover, dog mom. I grew up in a tree, inside a book, whispering possible futures into discarded seed pods that curled up and exploded each summer. One day, they cut down my tree and I was forced to go to school while waiting for the replacement trees to grow strong enough to hold me. But while we waited, I grew too heavy and awkward to climb, so I had to get a job. I spent my days surrounded by flimsy walls covered in carpet that made boxes and people who forgot to look out windows. I worked really hard. Possibilities were replaced with formulas and exactitude. Eventually I forgot how to climb a tree...and how to smile. Then one day, a dog licked my foot excessively and I remembered smiling. That reminded me of more things that didn't cost money and couldn't be tallied in a spreadsheet - like hugs and love and being happy. So I found myself a Steve who reminded me what home was. Then we filled it and our hearts with dogs. Eventually we planted our own tree, together. Even though I'm happy right here, right now, I remembered that we all need possibilities to dream of, so I've started writing them down.
