**The "Two Lights" Short Fiction Contest is now closed.**
First, my friends, let me say that I've been humbled by your response. Amazing writing, amazing comments, and amazing creativity! From one sliver of time captured in an image, we saw the explosion of different approaches, writing styles, voices, perspectives, and ideas. I've learned from what I've seen here. I'm sure you have too. Thank you for making this contest a raging success.
Tomorrow around 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time-U.S., I will announce the winners (please note I moved the time earlier). I will also say a bit about how I judged the entries. Be assured, though, that every piece demonstrated skill and power.
For all of you who are new to The Clarity of Night, I hope you will stick around! If something in the mood of these photographs spoke to you, if twilight is a time you treasure like no other, you may find this to be a cozy spot for reflection. I also invite you to browse the "Finding Your Way in the Night" index to the right and check out some of my own writing, expecially my latest short story, Diamond Shoals.
Lastly, look for future contests! I will be sponsoring them every couple of months. And if the number of entries matches this one, I will be sure to increase the number and amount of prizes!
Have a good night. See you all tomorrow!
