    I haven’t voted yet but all the stories in this month’s prompt were great and worthy of a vote.

    I enjoyed That’s Life for the metaphorical way it considered the theme. I love the positive message I got from this one and thought it was superbly written. I found the message very inspiring (and very true). Well done author.

    I also liked Brotherly Love because the murky beginning didn’t prepare me for the fun and joy that would be the outcome of the tale. I didn’t expect it and the story got me feeling positive and inspired by the end. Good storyline, author, and great buzz.

    I also enjoyed Ups and Downs because this story was sentimental and I was glad that two people found love on account of an amusement park. I thought it was lovely.

    The Countdown was also a good story but in a different way. Unlike the other story this one was different because this one was really sad and it didn’t end on an up-note. Maybe that was also part of its appeal. This one got me feeling some serious chills by the time I got to the end. Good job on that one.

    Thanks to all the writers for making this such a positively charged theme! Now I’ve got to go and figure out which of you’s I’m voting for (hint: I’m torn between two!)

    Let's get some more votes on this. Only four stories this month.

    One a little sad.
    One quite philosophical.
    One about love.
    One with an unexpected ending.

    Good usage of the prompt all of them.

    I meant to write one, but I sort of forgot there was a deadline. I'll have my vote in sometime today.
