10thDoM on Facebook!

Hey, everyone!

FYI: the relaunch is still being prepared... in the meantime, come join us on Facebook!

The Return of 10thDoM...

Hello, everyone...

So, more than a handful of people have expressed distress at the absence of The Tenth Daughter of Memory from their writing lives and, as callous as he may be, JeffScape has decided to attempt a relaunch of sorts.

However... things have changed.

The new system in mind provides longer periods of both submitting and voting, as well as limits the types of entries a specific Muse will accept.  The system, so far, looks wonderful on paper, but it is obvious to those involved that said system will undoubtedly run into problems.

Which means what, exactly?

Which means that, starting in November, The Tenth Daughter of Memory is going to launch a 3-cycle "beta test" to try out the next system, with the hopes of having a full relaunch in time for the "4th Annual River of Mnemosyne."

The beta test will be all-volunteer and done in private, and, well, we need volunteers.

Anyone interested in either participating or administrating, please email us at

Winner: "Setting Fire to Slippery Slopes"

Little point announcing a winner with four entries and only three votes. Interest has been dwindling and though it is a little heartbreaking, its originator isn't interested in monthly muses, and only four men and women are left standing. Even  attempting to change what has been a working formula to suit a couple of people who didn't even enter has not encouraged others to participate.
On a positive note, it's been a ride. We've stretched our creative muscles, landed in places fantastic and unknown and explored our potential. Thank you so much to the people who have administered. Thank you very much to Jeffscape for starting the whole thing and giving us the opportunity to be as creative as we are. Thank you to the participants for having the courage to take a leap and accept the critiques of others. Never say never, but I think this little adventure has reached it's zenith. Nine muses are NEVER enough...keep writing, keep creating and keep the faith. Thank you was wonderful while it lasted.
