List your Top 3 in the comments.

Remember, there are just 2.5 days to vote.  The winner will be announced on the 14th, and we'll all learn who sculpted the most flight-worthy butterfly of all.

  1. Does Mr. Linky need to be spanked? It appears he is not behaving :). Shouldn't he be retired to another area by now?

  2. Good choice of muse, Tom. I really enjoyed all the different approaches. Choosing a favorite was tough.

    1. Baino
    2. Tom
    3. JeffScape

  3. This really was difficult due to the diversity of entries. Loved most of them . . .and kudos to Siobhan for the photographic entry, I know how much that old building meant to her. Here goes:
    Jeffscape - sounds like cronyism but frankly I loved the butterfly effect and the vignettes.
    Pattiken - great characters and even though it's unfinished a lovely and compulsive read
    Had to toss a coin for third but giving it to Cinnamon for a short sharp look inside a disturbed head.

  4. These lengthier reads are making it much harder to vote. I am wishing we had a short and long category to vote in. I am torn between voting for writing style and the work of creating a longer worthwhile piece. That said:

    1. Tom
    2. Cinnamon
    3. JeffScape

    This may have been the hardest vote yet. Ugh. TORN. Please consider adding categories for entry.

  5. My favourite three takes on this Muse go to:

    Siobhan - loved the capture of photo #7

    She Writes A - for how it stirred the emotions

    Jeff/Baino - argh split for choice between these two tales ... but dare I say France over America?
    of course I dare, I'm a romantic - so Baino it is then.

  6. This was a hard vote... Five strong contenders that really could've placed in any order... but...

    1. Patti - "Metamorphosis" - the next part better pay off, or I'm rescinding my vote! :P
    2. She Writes (B) - "Cold" - clean, mostly clear, fairly concise... 'bout time.
    3. Tom - "Cement Butterfly" - balanced mix of straight and sap with enough Half-Moosisms to remind us whose brain we're in.

  7. 1.JeffScape

    You all always make it so hard to choose.
