Michael Wehunt won with his story “Everything That Can’t Heal Itself.” This is his second First Place finish and fifth time in the top three—in six contests! Impressive.
About this month’s prompt: I often look through our site stats to see how people are finding our website. One recent visitor arrived hear after searching for this…
I thought it very curious, so I scribbled it down. When it came time for this month’s contest prompt, those three words seemed like a good idea. And so that’s what this month’s contest was based upon, though I requested that participants write a tale without referencing plague suits or plague doctors of the past.
Michael Wehunt stepped up and dominated. “Everything That Can’t Heal Itself” received nearly double the Second Place votes.
In Second Place was “A Plague of the Most Beautiful Finery, by Kurt Fawver. And Third Place was taken by L. Pittenger, with his tale “Birdman.”
So a big congratulations to all!
