Robyn says: This was super fun! I’m in awe of the creativity and skill so many of you have. I’m a dreamer so content makers are my heroes!
Mark A. Morris
Robyn says: Mark Morris and his writing journey. He beautifully captured the struggle to get the words out. I felt this.

Robyn says: Terra wolf! I want to know what this young woman discovers about herself and the new world she’s on!
Week 507 Winner
Robyn says: Kin and Meg! I want to know why he’s afraid Meg is the one. There’s a great story there!
Dalton stared at Loch. “What are you saying?”
“You aren’t a Wolf so I’m thinkin’ you’ll not understand.”
Loch glanced around to make sure no one was paying attention to them. At this distance, the only member of the team who might be able to hear them was Kin. Wolf hearing could be both a blessing and a curse.
“Fine then. What d’ya know of our culture?”
Dalton blinked. “You mean Irish culture or—”
“No. I’m talkin’ about Wolves.”
Scratching his head, Dalton offered a boyish grin. “Dude, until my old SEAL team was assigned to take out a unit of Wolves who used to be in the Army, I had no clue y’all even existed.”
Loch didn’t smile. “How’d that work out for your team?”
His grin turning to a smirk, Dalton admitted, “We pretty much got our asses handed to us. Until we figured out it was a double cross. At that point, we worked together and got the job done. But I still don’t know all that much. I mean I know y’all don’t turn furry on the full moon and I can’t get it if you bite me.”
Resisting the urge to smack the cocky surfer boy, Loch quickly explained. “Like our wild brothers, we mate for life, if we find the right one.”
“And you think Kin and Meg…” A canny expression appeared on Dalton’s face. “He’s afraid it is her.”
“Boy, do we have a lot of work to do.”
