~ It's always darkest before the dawn ~


January 28, 2019


~ the time has come ~

This is the hardest thing I've ever had to decide on. I'm not even exaggerating. All of you did amazing! There were so many pieces of writing and I know it took a LOOONGG time but I'm just so glad I've got this all sorted. It was almost impossible to decide the winner, but I hope you guys agree with my decisions!

1st Place:
with ' carbon monoxide. '
This was just such an intense and interesting entry to read! I just absolutely love this piece! The way you expanded on you vocabulary, it made your description so full of depth. The depth you conveyed into this piece made it captivating to read. Such an interesting approach to the contest, and I love the useage of carbon monoxide, making an automatic link to fire. I highly recommend reading this piece!

2nd Place:
with ' her. '
Again, a great example with the description. Even the sort of vagueness that flowed through this piece made it powerful, and made me want to carry on reading. Every word you used sparked off something in my brain. Its great to let the readers imagine for themselves the image your trying to convey. Very interesting choice of words, which made it all the more fascinating to read! I love the line 'as my magic touch extinguishes your pain.'

3rd Place:
with ' Honey / Water '
Very interesring concepts. When I was trying to decide who would be in the top three places, I thought about the uniqueness of different pieces. This entry stuck in my mind; it was one of the most memorable pieces I've seen. Every  word I read was interesting, and it kead the path for a great poem. Also, great use of rhetorical questions throughout the piece; it really instills the mystery you were trying to convey in the readers hearts.

Honourable Mentions:
I'm sorry, I couldn't help myself; I had to do two Honourable Mentions!

1st Honourable Mention:
with ' the fire of life. '
Just so interesting! A very unique approach to #fire. I love how you incorporated relatable things that actually happens in the modern society. For example, you mentioned the sensitive topic of teenage suicides, which is really relevant for this generation. You knew who your audience was and your delivered this entry in such a way that made me feel inspired! Considering it was actually your first published work, I'm so proud!

2nd Honourable Mention:
Xavier Nelson
with ' Our Fire. '
This piece really showed the reader the narrator has an open mindset, especially the unique ideas you conveyed in this piece. I like how you related and compared human lives like that of a candle flame. This piece really egnites hope in the reader. I have a few favourite lines: ' a world in which we're all shining magnificently,' 'rage brilliantly,' and 'the world will be ours.'

    Hi PureHeart! Just logged into my account and found this in my notifications! Thank you so much for the honourable mention! I don't have any writings published here, so I posted a prologue of a long-term writing project I am working on called 'Charity Case'. I hope you could take a look at it! It's a first draft, so feel free to critique as much as you'd like! There's not much context to this story, so also let me know if you're confused with anything in the prologue :) Thank you so much!

    Congratulations to everyone else, and thank you! Like loveletterstosappho said, I would rather let you choose pieces that you truly like. That said, I wouldn't mind the review to be on my piece titled "A (Potentially) Bad Idea" since it's a long term project. Thank you again, this contest was fun! :)
