This weekend we are giving you three variations on a prompt. We need you to give us 33 words back, and 2 of those words must be either "cheap flights," "sandwiched in" or "spectacularly clean." This weekend, your piece must also be non-fiction (poetry or prose).
This week's challenge is community-judged.
- For the 12 hours following the close of the challenge, voting will be enabled on links.
- In order to vote, return to this post where stars will appear next to each link. To vote, simply click the star that corresponds with your favorite post.
- You can vote for your top three favorite posts.
- Voting is open to everyone. Encourage your friends to vote for you, if you wish, but please don't tell them to vote on a number. The numbering of the posts changes regularly, as authors have the ability to delete their own links at any time.
- You have 12 hours to vote. It's not much time, so be diligent! We'll send out reminders on Twitter and Facebook.
My love-hate relationship for being spectacularly clean:
I adore the exuberance of all-things pristine,
But detest the possibility of mucking the serene.
So I settle for the shades of gray somewhere in between.
And thus is my life's battle between having a moderate case of OCD and an equally substantial case of laziness. "Spectacularly clean" in our house only lasts minutes after decluttering/mopping/dusting/vacuuming/wiping/scrubbing/sighing for hours. That awesome feeling of spotlessness only lasts for moments few and far between. And once the house gets re-cluttered/messy/dirty beyond a certain point, there's really no reason to rescue it until the next scheduled full-on cleaning. Ya know what I mean?
Oh, and voting begins Sunday at 7 PM EST for 12 hours.
