    Loved your November comp entry. A grizzly one with a wonderful witty twist. That's set the bar high for the rest of us!

    I was very impressed with your October story, great building of unease and loved the pacing. The spacing helped slow me down too, even if unintended, so I got the drip feed of the story and genuine tenterhooks for the next line.

    This is one story that will take a while to get out of my mind, J.net. Strong emotion all the way through and what a tale. Very good.

    As she is still having computer problems, I've been asked by JKDavies to pass on her theme for the November comp, which I have done. I realise Whispers & Glances comp is preoccupying lots of peeps, but it would be nice to keep supporting the monthly comps - it might even help inspire. JKD will open her own thread as soon she is able so that you can post your entries, but at least you have the theme now so you can start to pen down some ideas.
