I have been following Melody’s blog with great interest for quite some time now, and it was about time I invited her to do the roundup for Wicked Wednesday. You can read her words on her blog, or follow her on Twitter.
Top 3 for week 376 by Melody
It’s some months ago that I received the question from Marie about adjudicating a #WickedWednesday. It’s like a rite of passage, an acceptance in the realms of blogging. Of course I’m delighted to do it.
#WickedWednesday gave me my first wider recognition, so my bias would be towards newer writers (or at least unknown to me). Having said that, posts that draw me in with the narrative, make me want to read them and perhaps leave me wanting to know more at the end are what I look for in general reading material.
The delight with doing this is making the effort to read writers and genres that for one reason or another I would not normally get around to. Thank you all for contributing.
In the end, the choice is about what appeals to and works for me.
“Easy Money” by Mr More
A very entertaining and well written piece. It evoked true life characters, places and a time I’m all familiar with. We can have a goal for life such as acquiring riches of one sort or another, but is that the same as the dream we have in how we use and enjoy them once we have them ? I really hope we will see more works from Mr More as there are tales to be told. There’s more than one writing talent in the More household.
“The Summer Lucky Came to Stay” by Violet Fawkes
This story stood out because the characters naturally create themselves. I sort of imagined the village as one might find in Cider With Rosie. An interesting anatomy of a small village scandal that might be innuendo but lasts in the village consciousness as evil to be covered up. Make your own minds up as to what happened to Lucky.
“In the company of women” by Molly Moore
A very surprising choice from me since it’s a glimpse in to a world I don’t know and never will. There’s a vitality comes through in this piece. I think it’s enhanced by the rain because the setting becomes ‘nature as you find it’. Six women enjoying a day out together, getting naked and wet – as you would.
And I would like to do a shout out for “Tyche” by @MusingsMaster, it stretched my recollections of mythology.
… representing one’s true nature or beliefs; true to oneself or to the person identified
