Story and Poem of the Month
Posted by Insertponceyfrenchnamehere on Sun, 06 Nov 2022
Our Story and Poem for the month of October have very kindly been chosen by onemorething. Here's what she says:
It’s a huge pleasure to choose the Picks of the Month. However, there is so much great writing on the site in the course of a month that it’s always a hard job!
And yet, gongs have been awarded!
For Story of the Month, we must return to the start of October and Jane Hyphen’s A Real Doctor. It’s hilarious, makes me smile just thinking about it and very well written. I love its quirkiness.
There are many other gems, of course, and honourable mentions must be made of these pieces of writing:
Celticman’s Ugly Puggly has continued throughout October and is just great writing. https://www.abctales.com/story/celticman/ugly-puggly-86
Ed Crane’s The Trials of An Angel has also seen us through October – excellent storytelling!
Also, cssquirrel’s surreal https://www.abctales.com/story/csquirrel/our-second-core-belief-loyalty-based-leadership is very much worth reading.
Poem of the Month is Lenchenelf’s Center of its own Universe which is so perfect that it brought a tear to my eye. It’s just wonderful. https://www.abctales.com/story/lenchenelf/center-its-own-universe
It was closely followed by Di Hard’s tree time which is brilliant and also very moving. Sometimes it is painful to choose! https://www.abctales.com/story/dihard/tree-time
I think mention should be made, too, of Angusfolklore’s poems in October. These two were so good:
And, of course, Lem’s very powerful poem: https://www.abctales.com/story/lem/vessel-overflows
Best wishes for a good November to all.
