  • Community Ambassador The Dying Rose's peer review pick is The Ravenclaw Dragon's review of "Lives and Souls," by Coolgirl! Here's what they had to say:

    This review has a perfect balance of encouragement and constructive criticism, with plenty of helpful suggestions as well as lots of praise. The reviewer also uses the highlighting tool well, balancing constructive feedback and encouragement throughout. The reviewer's questions in the text boxes show that they are invested in the piece and really do want to see more of the author's work about their imaginary world, making this review one of the best I've seen on the site.

    Congratulations to The Ravenclaw Dragon, and a big thank you to The Dying Rose for selecting this piece!

A Car

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2022

You can tell a lot about someone from the inside of their car; whether a heavily perfumed pine tree swings from their mirror, or they let the AC blast waves of musty air throughout the vehicle. You can toe the old receipts littering the ground, observing forgotten reminders of shopping sprees and expensive lunches, that were banished to the floor without a thought. If you search closer you may find a sticker, pressed to the door handle by an eager...

We are girls and we will fight until we are heard.

When did they decide
That they were greater than us?
When did men learn
To push women aside
And sew our mouths shut
So that our words were suffocated
By the hands of men that grip our necks.
Locked up in a box
Told to ‘cook’ and ‘clean’
Whilst the men are out there
Erasing our words from the history books
Scrubbing the pavement
Where our blood has left stains.
We’re programmed
From a young age
That we must sit...

I am the Ocean.
They used to love me, the people. They would pray for me to bless them, would spend their days frolicking among my shore, would walk through gentle waves in the night.
Nobody ever went further than that, though. They said it was too dangerous.
I begged them to come play out deeper; I sent out gentle ripples of water telling them it was safe. They were safe. I would protect them.

Role of Recruitment Process Outsourcing Companies In The Great Resignation Era

Workers voluntarily quit. Many anxious. More agitated.
 
All this - to take new, better-paying jobs.
 
Beyond paychecks: New-gen workers look for workplace happiness, work-life balance, respect and fulfilment.
 
Candidates and top talent are consistently and relentlessly looking for better career opportunities. According to a recent Microsoft survey, 52% of young people, namely Millennials and Gen Z workers, said they were likely to consider switching employers this year. That’s 3% more than the last year.

The mouse creeps silently through darkness, sniffing cautiously. A pungent aroma fills its nostrils. Cheese sits on a wooden platter, as though left for the mouse to enjoy. Be careful, be quick, just a bite. Snap.

…Was it worth it little mouse? Tangy, creamy glory fills your mouth, but pain engulfs your back. The mouse’s struggle against the metal bar is agonising. It pants, drenched in sweat, it’s silky fur wriggling, muscles heaving to pull away with a pop. It’s...

"Even the dead tell stories..." The words had been slurred at her by a crazy man, a man feverish from spending his nights drunk on the street. Staggering from intoxication, he'd grabbed her, clamping his red-tipped fingers around her arms. His words were nonsense; to her they spoke volumes. Five words were enough to make her shiver, her mind run rampant with fervently dark and depressing tales.
