My VisDare family rocks.
They are so good that I had to do more than weekly Twitter shout-outs. So I have lurked among their blogs, savored their VisDare stories, and decided which I like best.
The VisDare has never been a contest, per se. There are no judges or first place prizes. But some entries just stand out as personal bests, and everyone has one. So this is my chance to show my readership those entries that (I think) really shine.
About the VisDare “Wizard List”:
Entries were selected based on what I felt was the writer’s personal best among VisDares submitted during January and February.
Entries are listed in order of the prompts that given.
Everyone who submitted an entry, even if only in the comments, has an entry linked here.
Photo titles link back to the original post. Readers may go there for credit of photo authorship, plus the original InLinkz leading to a full list of entries for that photo.
Twitter handles are included because I think awesome writers deserve to be followed.
