First does to @Charisse Marison for being the first person to nominate a piece for October 2019 Must Reads! Next goes to @artificialaorta for his responses when we review his piece, which helps clear up questions and further the editing! Following is @Quille for being out very first follower when we started this account forever ago! And last but not least, @Anajou772 for being out lastest follower (when I made this)-we hope we help you're writing experience. If you were given a shoutout-no fret, you're all still appreciated and loved, and will get shout outs soon!!

ALSO, READ THE WHOLE PIECE BEFORE NOMINATING SO YOU DO NOT NOMINATE WRONG!

Here's How To Nominate:
-Like this post
-Comment below the piece you want to submit (State piece's name, category, Author, & short reason for nomination. Also, a link would be helpful but not necessary!)

Qualifications for Nomination:

-You may not nominate more than 1 piece of YOUR own work
-Do not comment questions in this post, ask questions in the posts of our prompts
-The piece must not be too sexual and/or contain extremely bad curse words (keep it PG-13)
-Pieces may not have been part of any WTW competitions (however, they may be ones of user-hosted contests)
-If any rules and/or qualifications aren't met, your nomination does NOT count
Categories: (We decided to start focusing on genres than how it's written/composed)

Miscellaneous (please try to avoid this category if possible and sort it in the other ones)
Lastly:
-All nominations are due by the 10th of December, anything later isn't accepted
-We will allow pieces to be in more than 1 category. Therefore, for example, you can have a piece that's romance and tragedy.
-After all nominations, we will go back through and review them personally. Then, we'll pick the best from the best and post them all on one page called 'November Must Reads' (which will be reposted more than once)
Hopefully, since we're posting this piece a little earlier, more people will be nominated and the Must Reads will be up sooner.

    Title: Birthday
    Category: Tragedy
    Reason: I really loved this piece and I am really proud of it, I had LOTS of grammatical errors, but they are all fixed now. I feel this piece is heartbreaking, but somewhat relatable.

    Title: we're never really more than words
    Category: Lower case prose
    Author: Dmoral13
    Reason: This piece is one of most well-written rants I've read.
    That doesn't sound very complimentary, but turning a twisting, chaotic, confused thought process into something readable is not easy, and Dmoral13 not only did that but made it a piece of art as well.

    Title: war
    Category: Poem
    Author: Ursa (me)
    Reason: I've tried many times to write something based on an image in my head, but "war" was one of the few times I succeeded. I don't really write much poetry, but I managed to create clear windows into my imagination where these scenes were playing out.

    Title: Coincidence? Fate?
    Category: Romantic
    Author: Dmoral13
    Reason: This section of my comment explains my reason: the emotions in this piece are so real, so relatable, and that is definitely your strength in writing. You could have the most abstract concepts and ideas, but if you put feelings and emotion into it, we will all be like "yeah, been there."

    piece name: the hungry blue
    category: magical realism isn’t a category but it’s what I would categorize this piece as (basically realistic fiction+fantasy)
    author: norah (me)
    reason: I believe that I did well with this piece, that it reflects a well-thought-out and well-written narrative, and idk it’s weird nominating your own stuff, but I enjoyed reading it after I was done and I hope other ppl will too
    link: https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/138116/version/270077

    piece name: dehydration / you
    category: poetry
    author: r|A|i|N
    reason: a fantastic poem, well written and evocative
    link: https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/136947/version/265288

    title: the land
    category: poetry
    author: oscar_locke
    reason: a really well put together and atmospheric poem

    Hey :D Thanks so much for the shout-out! I must admit I was wary of you for a while (due to thinking it was an admin account) but I really support what you do.
    Thank you :)
    Here are some nominations :)

    Title: Chapter - 1 (Might be a little sensitive... This is a warning!)
    Author: Fernweh
    Category: I'm sorry, but probably Miscellaneous
    Reason: Fernweh is an amazing writer, but I don't think her works get the recognition they deserve. This is the first chapter in her ongoing novel & I think she would really appreciate some feedback on it :)
    https://www.writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/135193/version/260301

    Title: #thewitchinghour
    Author: weirdo
    Category: Poem, Simple/Short but Powerful
    Reason: weirdo's poetry is always a pleasure to read, but this one is probably one of my favorites :)
    https://www.writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/139250/version/270657

    Title: thinkin' in colours #colours
    Author: Dmoral13
    Category: Lowercase prose
    Reason: This is an under appreciated piece with vivid imagery by one of my favorite writers here. And it's also hugely relatable for me, since I also think in colors :)

    title: And you would have walked upon shards of glass for the rest of your life just to see her smile again. | part one
    author: anha
    category: romantic, fantasy, tragedy, narrative, folklore
    reason: i was gonna nominate the fourth installment because it is most definitely my favorite, but it looks like anha beat me to it so i’ll just nominate the first. this story is one of the best i’ve read on wtw and the first part provides a very interesting hook. the story is so wonderfully crafted, i’d drive you insane if you didn’t just keep on reading. it deserves way more recognition than it is currently getting.

    being selfish again this month.
    title: And you would have walked upon shards of glass for the rest of your life just to see her smile again. | part four (it's a mouthful, i know)
    category: romantic, fantasy, (tragedy kind of applies), narrative, folklore
    author: anha (me)
    reason: of all the parts i've released for this story so far, i feel like this is the one more masterfully crafted. i'm proud of it, what other reason do you give for promoting your own work?
    link: https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/139042/version/269905
    (if you need context for this piece, the previous three parts are linked in the footnotes for convenience.)

    title: I am something without teeth
    category: poem, tragedy
    author: aryelee
    reason: i've had this in my bookmarks for a long time; it's an exemplar of phenomenal language and engaging formatting for an emotion that would be otherwise inexplicable.
    link: https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/135560/version/261411

    title: Before the Battle Music Started There Was This
    category: fantasy, tragedy, narrative
    author: PouringOutTheSun
    reason: pots' analogies and metaphors are unmatched on wtw. this piece is no exception; the lilting sway between colloquial language and phrases straight out of a hymnal is hypnotic, need i say more?
