"Invalid Item"   [] by A Guest Visitor
"Invalid Item"   [] by A Guest Visitor
         This poem manages to break almost every rule I consider paramount to effective writing, yet I couldn't help but laugh and be entertained. Given that title and overall flow (or lack thereof) of it highlights rule breaking as the author's intent and that it was so cleverly done, I think this deserves a nomination.

"The Old Holy Cemetery "   [ASR] by ChrisDaltro-Chasing Moonbeams
"Invalid Item"   [] by A Guest Visitor
         This story is a wonderful mixture of horror, amnesia, mystery and art. The way Cherry-Anne incorporates art into this story is done, appropriately enough, with artistry. Four paragraphs into this piece I knew I was in the hands of a storyteller.
"Pink Christmas"   [E] by ChrisDaltro-Chasing Moonbeams
         This author never ceases to amaze me with her talent as a writer. Her stories are original and show tremendous creativity. She has an uncanny ability to write with visual imagery that causes the reader to react emotionally.
"Be Good To Your Muse..."   [18+] by Angus
         This was the first review I'd ever sent on WDC, and it remains the best piece of work I've seen. The satirical approach is comedic while still being somewhat serious, and the creativity shown is impressive, to say the least.
