Winner: "Smiling as the Sparks Fly Upwards"

It's best not to keep a clever prankster locked in the back room, as Tom showed us in his winning story. He's sure to find a way out, and when he does, sparks will fly.


Half Moose with a Twist!


Congratulations, Tom. We all blinked rapidly at your tale of a robot with a sense of humor.


Tom's muse will appear on January 16th.  We'll welcome in the new year on January 1st with She Writes' muse.

Reminder: "Smiling as the Sparks Fly Upwards"

Dante Alighieri said, “Pride, envy, avarice - these are the sparks that have set on fire the hearts of all men” and women. (OK, we added that part about women, but we’re sure he meant them too, right?) If you haven’t got your creativity blazing yet, throw one of these on the fire, and stand back.



The flood of fun that is the River of Mnemosyne (RoM) is rushing this way. Get out there and bring in some new 10thDoM participants. You can earn points to give yourself a jump start on the rest of the RoM revelers.

Reminder: "In Love, In War, For Lust, Forewarned"

Are you winning the war of love, or losing a battle with lust? Wherever you are in your campaign, be forewarned. Your time to score is running out.



P.S.  Don't forget - now's the time to get a jump on your worthy competitors in the River of Mnemosyne Challenge next February.. There are some really talented writers listed on your blogroll. Surely some of them would welcome the challenge of 10thDoM. The more participants you bring in before the end of the year, the greater your advantage in the River of Mnemosyne Challenge.

Here's how it works:
  • Bring in a first time player and you'll score 3 points.
  • Revive a player who hasn't played since 2010 and we'll slip you 2 points. 
  • Bring back a player who hasn't been involved since June 2011 and you'll get 1 point. 
  • Make sure to tell everyone you bring in or bring back to let the admins know who recruited them. They can notify us by comment or email.
Whoever has the most points as of January 1st, 2012 gets to pick the opening Muse for River of Mnemosyne. Which probably means the winner gets to the pick the first two RoM Muses, since their first part should be ready to go as soon as the challenge starts.


How can you pass that up?

"Concrete Butterfly"

Mind or soul? Does Tom of Half Moose agree with our favorite Greeks who believe the butterfly is a symbol of the mind or psyche?  Or does he fall on the side of others around the globe who see it as a symbol of the soul? There’s one thing for sure, though. Tom isn't picturing a butterfly with gossamer wings for this muse.

"CONCRETE BUTTERFLY"

So which is it for you?  Will you present the saga of a soul hardened to stone or spin a tale of a psyche cast in concrete?  Put that chisel to work and fashion your vision for all to see.

Two glass houses and twenty stones? What has Baino delivered upon us but an apparent war of words? Perhaps we should proceed with caution.  You know what they say about people in glass houses. On the other hand, they – and you know how they are, always ready with a proverb to fit the occasion -- also say “he who hesitates is lost.”

"Rehearsing With Gods"

For what sane mind these days is swirling with gods and demons and swimming among archetypes? We mostly exist in our little world of images and simulacra, fed to us by the media masters—look, honey, I shrunk the universe, major credit cards accepted. Confused?
