Writer Wars Winner: "52 Days Later" by GreenEggsAndPurpleHam

Congrats to GreenEggsAndPurpleHam for earning 12 votes and this week's Sparklers' Choice Award!  Her chilling narrative gave us a glimpse into the mind of the only survivor of a nuclear holocaust—a character who, despite their despair, is driven onward by an inexplicable sense of hope. Check out her full submission (accompanied by Reid Faylor's haunting illustrations) right here, and then head over to the newest Writer Wars and submit an entry for the latest prompt!
