  1. Victoria — this may be one of the best things I’ve read of yours. Amazing how you made parallels with only 100 words to work with — very effective!
    I’m not writing this week, but I’d love it if you’d drop by my blog for a second anyway, I posted a big announcement today.

  2. Wow! This is brilliant story, Victoria. I love the evocative details and the mood they create. Mosquitos becoming fighter planes and smokers resonating with lazy clouds … very impressive.

  3. What a great take on the prompt Victoria!Loved how you started the story-a relaxed,lazy tone and then suddenly it was action packed,tense with a sense of foreboding and the end was so fluid-so final-just like death!Bravo!And yes,need I reiterate what others have already mentioned-the presentation is amazing!:-)
