Finish The Story - Week #48 - Winners!

Hoist the colours, proud fiction writers!


I don't want to write. It's your fault. Why, why and then *why* you write such bloody accurate, coherent, original and entertaining pieces? Can't you just dump in the steemit blockchain a shitpost like everyone else? Shame on you!!

So, yes, I don't want to write. Consider my sentence above as a sufficient meal for your writer's ego, for today. It's late and the last bit of my father's birthday tiramisu cake is watching me from the pillaged terrine with a smooth and seducing gaze.

I don't want to write. God, I'm knackered. Worn out by 13 amazing entries, of which SIX received a well-deserved curie vote. A total record. Oh, and welcome to our new members of this potassium enhanced family: @sevendust04, @maparari, @jadams2k18. And, of course, welcome back @randomwanderings (and thanks for your final coup de grace by not linking your story :-P) and it's awesome to see you again with us @erh.germany!

I don't want to write also because I spent a good hour debating and brainstorming with @calluna - our skilled co-writer of this week's edition - about the winners and reading again all the entries. And you all know how her multi-quantum brain CPU works. And that's why I'm writing: because writing sometimes doesn't depend on someone's will but it's just an act of necessity.

[Insert here, for a dramatic effect, Ludwig van Beethoven - Symphony no. 7 in A major, Op. 92 performed by Von Karajan]

[For a further dramatic effect, if you want to particularly torture yourself, insert here a random looping scene from Бронено́сец «Потёмкин»]

... And the winners of this potassium laced edition are:


  • GRAND PRIZE - 5 STEEM: @vasigo with a story that departs from the consolidated FtS côté. And that's why it's been rewarded. For its charge of novelty, the sagacious action and the timing in the dialogues. All of these and more are elements that contributed to creating a theatrical effect which resembles the best "Commedia dell'Arte".

  • SECOND PRIZE -3 STEEM: @agmoore. There's no need to comment on this piece. Skillful and functional use of short sentences, a lean yet detailed prose and a powerful message.

  • THIRD PRIZE - 2 STEEM: @maparari. A fully enjoyable, well-crafted comedy. You don't have to be "deep" at any cost, sometimes making the reader smile (or even laugh in this case) is way more difficult.

  • POPULAR VOTE - 2 SBI: @oivas, welcome back to you too! A well-structured horror story with a brilliant final twist.

  • BEST COMMENT - 2 SBI: @erh.germany. Sometimes I'm astonished by the depth that you can reach on your comments (like those of @calluna and @theironfelix). I've been impressed by the stimulating discussion under @jadams2k18's post which involved the concepts of opportunity/necessity and a systemic thinking approach (other than some very long German words).

And that's all banana-folks! See you tomorrow with a gem by @gaby-crb and the precious curation of @ntowl!

Congratulations to the winners!!!

I had so much fun with this contest and all the supper comments from @calluna and especially @theironfelix.

Please! A standing ovation to the dedication of these two great people, and @bananafish, of course (and the crowd screams: YAAAAAAY!, echoing all four corners of the world)

You are a champ @jadams2k18. Of whatever I have seen of you, you are a really good man! And spiritual if I am not wrong. All the best! :)

Thaaank youuuu! I'm looking forward to writing more stories with all of you

Thank you so much. Congratulations to the winners, and the writers.
Every now and then I try on my story-writing hat. It's fun to write. When people enjoy the writing, it's doubly gratifying.
Thanks for the award, and for providing an environment in which writers can discover their craft.
Until next time....

This environment is unique thanks to people like you @agmoore 🙂

Congrats everyone!
I had fun writing and reading your stories after a long time of absence.

Would I have two selfs I'd probably stick around more but since I can only see one version of Erika it'll stay challenging. :-))

Everyone wants an Erika's slice 😋
