Kim wins a copy of The Writer’s Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers by Christopher Vogler.
Thanks to all who took the time to enter this round. Also to second-time guest judge, Ara Jansen, a freelance journalist, music guru and former magazine editor. Ara was given only the titles and text of each entry, without author names, and agreed not to read the posted versions so was not aware of ‘likes’ or comments.
Here are her comments on Bated Breath:
Bated Breath’s Baxter Caldwell won my heart because his story is one all too common in this world moving at a rapid pace. Too much energy in all the wrong places. He seems to get another chance, but who wants to wait for a deer to help you choose life (thanks George Michael). Baxter needs to read Breathing You and Morning Breath for that promise of a better life, while Simon from Morning Breath might well have written Breathing You for Miranda after finishing his ministrations.
