Good morning, Flames!
We have started a new month’s contest, hosted by our own darlinleo. For week one she has asked us to write about our own “Local Color”. I’m eager to read your submissions on this one. I had a devil of time getting started on mine and then ran out of time once I finally got going. I’m glad to see that the rest of you had no such trouble.
Be sure to give a warm welcome to our new writer Flammarionn. We are glad to have you writing with us!
Here’s the reading list:
Title: Life Author

Title: The Death of Marilyn Monroe

Get your reading done early and cast your votes by 11:45pm on Wednesday. This will be the new fixed day for voting deadlines on regular contests. It will help us determine who moves into the next round early enough in the week for the contestants to act. For the March week one prompt we will not need to vote to eliminate, just appreciate. For that reason, you have three votes to cast.
Don’t forget to drop a note to your fellow writers to let them know they are appreciated. If it’s an off-site 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!
