Remember Protest? The short scene written in answer to the challenge: write a story using just one adjective and one adverb? Well, I won! First place. Oh yeah! The article announcing the winners is pasted below, along with the story.
I’m so happy; I could be walking on air. And I had to share…
And please be sure to read the other winning entries. They are worthy of the honor and the authors are truly great. I invite you to check out WEBook. It is a great place to connect with other writers, give and receive feedback, and just be heard.
Thank you to all my readers. For without you, my words would forever remain cloaked in darkness.

The Single Adjective/Adverb Winners!
It's time to announce the winners of our current bi-weekly writing challenge. If you're new to the challenges (or to WEbook) these are short writing exercises geared towards helping authors improve a specific aspect of their craft and promote a healthy discourse between contestants.
Note that we will be taking a hiatus on these challenges for the holiday season. We love doing them, but we also love eating turkey, opening presents, and munching on candy canes. Look for new challenges in 2011.
First, the #1 winner and honorable recipient of a PageToFame coupon AND a Starbucks Giftcard:

And, as we take a break from the challenges for a while, we'd like to thank everyone who has submitted an entry over the past year. We couldn't do these challenges without you, and it's been a great pleasure of ours to read through your creative entries.
Before you go, be sure to read galanham's winning entry:
See Spot run.
Tommy loathed the assignment. The class had to write a narrative containing one adjective and one adverb. How one accomplished the task, Tommy could not decide. Adjectives added color to life. Without adverbs there was no enthusiasm. That was what Tommy believed.
See Spot jump.
What could he inscribe? An account about a dog? A yarn about running? A fairy-tale to amuse children? He wrote dreams and desires. These day-dreams wove color and excitement. Hope was not a story with one adjective and one adverb.
See Spot leashed.
Mutiny rose in Tommy’s chest. The mission was a restriction of freedom. He would smother. His creativity would suffocate. But Tommy had an inspiration. He would tell a story about one adjective and one adverb. His chronicle would shine. He would shine.
Tommy began to write. His words streaked across the sheet. They left a trail of chaos, a wildly protesting legend of furious determination.
See Spot fly.
