Lily's Friday Prediction

I'm up early after a late night that had me swimming in and out of nightmares, waking every ten minutes with a shuddering heart and distorted vision. That's it - Pizza? You and me are through.

Despite that, the skies are blue and the birds are singing (except for the gulls, whose squawking somehow puts them out of the avian X-Factor league). Post-Solstice midsummer look like being a bright one. So mote it be.

Multiple congrats to Erin Cole for winning last week's Prediction Challenge with The Man with Blue in His Beard. Also to joint runners-up Angel Zapata for his poem Forgiveness and Phil Ambler with Evolution. Well done too to asuqi, who received an Honourable Mention for Void.

Publisher, huh? Could be dangerous waters... Dare you dip your toes?
