Best New Group
Honorable mention: "Invalid Item"   [] by A Guest Visitor
         Excellent place for any woman within WDC to talk about any things that usually wouldn't share with everyone. Only women will understand it! *Laugh* Great group!
Winner: "Love Shouldn't Hurt"   [18+] by Grieving Lyn
         I feel like groups exposing the pain of abuse are important on a site like this. So many people have been through abuse and they feel like they have nowhere to turn in real life to talk about it. Lyn has been raising awareness on the site through her group and the group's members have been doing the same.
"Invalid Item"   [] by A Guest Visitor

"The WDC Angel Army"   [ASR] by iKรฏyรฅยงama
Honorable mention: "Fantasy and Science Fiction Society"   [E] by David the Dark one!

Winner: "The Newbies Academy Group"   [E] by ~ Sisco ~ Back!
         This was the group that first made contact with me on WDC. They made me feel welcome and gave me all sorts of tips for navigating WDC. Without it, I doubt I would have had the motivation to stay on here and keep writing!

         Norb is leader of "30-Day Blogging Challenge but he also participates in blogging challenges and he is a very funny, interactive and interesting person with some great ideas that he shares within his newest blog.

         Another awesome rambling about the daily life of a great, great person from Tasmania.
"Confessions of a girl who sail the world"   [GC] by ~Minja~

         It was well received by so many.
"Blood Oranges"   [13+] by argo000
         It can be hard to express ones thoughts on any political "hot topic". The situation with Boycott Israeli products is too lengthy to put here but this simple poem puts it front and center with few words. And in any such situation, it is the family and children who pay the price, no matter what side of the debate a person is on. A fact easily seen in this piece.

"Invalid Item"   [] by A Guest Visitor
         A beautiful poem that asks the questions many of us face, at least at some point in our lives. For an author with depression, I can only imagine the process one must go through to open up a vein and bleed in words for all to see. A lovely but sobering poem, haunting in its portrayal of Ann's vulnerability.

         A whip-smart collection of wit, humor, sass and vibrancy on a wide variety of subjects, amassed in a style that can only be described as unique to and as the person who writes it. I've yet to come across anything so full from top to bottom...there is no filler; no weak link here.

Best Flash Fiction (F)
"She Hated Riddles, But Was Good at Them!"   [E] by Vincent Coffin
         I love, love, love the character Spartacus Kane. This is a mystery in the steampunk genre that does not involve police, military or detectives. How cool is that?

         Excellent story and grammar too.
"Othello's Adjustment"   [13+] by โ™ฅ GrOOvy HOOves โ™ฅ
         This historical but fictional story is mesmerizing. The author used her creativity to create a character who is unapologetic in his actions, funny in his predictable feline way, and who is (above all) a true survivor. The writing is superb, and never over complicates the nature of Othello. I wish I could tell such a tail!
Finalist: "Phoebe's Hope"   [E] by Fyntastic!
         This piece moved me. It hit WDC at a time when we were all thinking about Phoebe and really touched my heart.
"What You See in the Mirror"   [GC] by Strega
         The author show true talent and professionalism with this piece!
"Agalmatophilia"   [18+] by Strega
This story is an exceptional piece of horror, and the author is ultra-talented in everything she writes!
"Survive"   [13+] by Once In a Red Moon
         This story is a mixture of incredibly moving and beautifully written.

"'Were' Here!"   [XGC] by Patrece~So busy!!!
         Creepily different! Not into 'were' anything, but this kept me reading!
"Invalid Item"   [] by A Guest Visitor
         It is difficult to incorporate sound and colloquialism in a story, and do it as well as this story did. The originality of the events amazed me and were extremely entertaining. Besides being creative and well-written, this fable like story was a joy to read.
"Jurassic Station"   [13+] by GeminiGem
         Original and creative, well-written and extremely entertaining. A hard combination to beat.
