Like many others, I write to fill an inner need, rather than an expectation of success or acclaim. In my writing, I strive to work and craft an idea or thought in a new way, sometimes achieving something worthwhile, other times failing miserably. Constructive comments are greatly appreciated and honest compliments gratefully accepted.

Overall, I'd say love won but there were some stauch advocats or lust as well. In my judging, I was looking for works which looked at both sides. Congrats to all the winners and thanks to all who entered. The placements aer listed below.
