Break the Block Thu 15th Oct 2020 - Results

Thanks to everyone who entered this round of the competition.  It's always a thrill to see what you come up with from the prompts on the night.  As last time, I really enjoyed reading them.  They are read blind with the help of my other half, so it is all fair and square.  My choices are based on 5 criteria: Opening, Character, Plot, Ending and Language.  I give each story a tick if in my humble opinion it stood out from the others in each of those categories.  This causes some crossovers of course, so I read the ones with the most ticks again, rating them a second time against each other on the same list.  Thanks for making my job so hard!  Without further ado, the results are below. 

1st Prize - Nikki Davison - His Apartment - £20

2nd Prize - Donna M Day - Life - 2hr Workshop

3rd Prize - Valerie Griffin - The Catalyst - 1hr Workshop

Commended - Michele Hart - Parallel Freedom
