One of the best things about the small space/prompt combination is you'll see several extremely similar stories that are also crafted in very different ways. We anticipated lower participation this week due to a tough theme, but we were wrong. Many people took to the challenge in surprising ways.
A couple people didn't get auto-responses this week, which was the result of human error on our end. If you sent two submissions, no worries.
Total Submissions: 125
Number of consumed brains: 22
Zombie-themed stories: 13
Murdered kittens: 2
The majority of our responses most likely won't go out until later today and tomorrow, both good and bad. Thanks for your continued support and patience.
We also really appreciate all the re-tweets and @tweetthemeat replies. We don't get the chance to respond to many, but we read them all.
In a couple weeks we're going (hoping) to start taking submissions for artwork that will be the background image for themed weeks. More info on that when it comes time.
Next week's theme: Critters.
