Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover

KEEP POSTING I NEED TO KNOW! DONT STOP POSTING ABOUT THIS. IT IS NOT OVER!

Tom Hardy’s character revealed! "The Dark Knight Rises’ Tom Hardy joins Batman Begins star Cillian Murphy to play dangerous and unpredictable gang leader Alfie Solomons. The character is apparently based on a real gang leader of the 1920s.” (X)

Three years ago, researchers fired whisky to the International Space Station as part of an experiment to see how the conditions in space change flavours. Next month, the whisky will return to Earth.

Scotland’s contribution to space research. Good job.

Well done on the drabbles this week, writers! And thank you to everyone for reading, commenting, and voting. It’s the votes, along with the drabbles, that have kept this challenge going all these weeks.
This week, the winner is lezzerlee, who wrote “It Starts with Red”. Congratulations!
Unfortunately, we must still farewell one author. This week, we say goodbye to nifeandaccurate, who wrote “Don’t Think About Elephants”. Thank you so much for your participation these past nine weeks; it was a pleasure having you in the challenge.
Author names have been added to the original drabble post, and all feedback is being e-mail anonymously to the authors now.
The next set of prompts will go up soon.
If any author would like to know their ranking for the week, please e-mail the mods at aelastwriter@gmail.com.

!!! Made it to the finale! I’m so excited. Eternalsojourn is stiff competition. I’m happy to be paired with one of my favorite writers for this last round. AELDWS has been a blast! All the writers are so talented. I can’t believe how amazing the drabbles were this week. Can I just say that nifeandaccurate's drabble was wonderful, and I don't know how voters chose at all.

Kurt Vonnegut: 16 Rules For Writing Fiction
1. Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.
2. Give the reader at least one character he or she can root for.
3. Every character should want something, even if it is only a glass of water.
4. Every sentence must do one of two things — reveal character or advance the action.
5. Start as close to the end as possible.
6. Be a sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them — in order that the reader may see what they are made of.
7. Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia.
8. Give your readers as much information as possible as soon as possible. To heck with suspense. Readers should have such complete understanding of what is going on, where and why, that they could finish the story themselves, should cockroaches eat the last few pages.
9. Find a subject you care aboutand which you in your heart feel others should care about.
10. Do not ramble.
11. Keep it simple. Simplicity of language is not only reputable, but perhaps even sacred.
12. Have guts to cut. Your rule might be this: If a sentence, no matter how excellent, does not illuminate your subject in some new and useful way, scratch it out.
13. Sound like yourself. The writing style which is most natural for you is bound to echo the speech you heard when a child.
14. Say what you mean. You should avoid Picasso-style or jazz-style writing, if you have something worth saying and wish to be understood.
15. Pity the readers. Our stylistic options as writers are neither numerous nor glamorous, since our readers are bound to be such imperfect artists.
16. You choose. The most meaningful aspect of our styles, which is what we choose to write about, is utterly unlimited.
