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.

Reminder: "Setting Fire to Slippery Slopes"

Fanning the flames or raking the embers, either way, time's running out. You'll need energy to burn if you're going to make it out of the frypan and into the fire.

"Setting Fire to Slippery Slopes"

Quite appropriate given that this little blog is on a slippery slope and that Colorado is going up in flames. Time to unleash the hidden pyromaniac, reignite the creative flame. Half Moose with a Twist invites us to burn it up with:

"Setting Fire to Slippery Slopes"

Burn baby it up in a blaze of glory because where there's smoke, there's fire.

This is the first of our 'monthly muses'. We're trialling giving you a little longer to write, post and read. Post as soon as you're ready, and we'll post a reminder on the 14th. Voting begins on the 21st!
