I kept the same number of awards winners to keep in the standard of Cal's contest. Cal notified me that he would be handling the rewards. However, as his communications are sparse, at this time, I have decided to split the beneficiaries from this post among last week's winners as a means of compensation.

Each of the authors listed above will receive 20% of all rewards from this post.

I will continue this type of reward indefinitely until he comes back. Let's give @calumam our best wishes for a speedy and safe return.

Helpful Hints
  • Clearly include the selected word in your article (we are not mind readers)
  • Please include the #pob-wotw tag in your article submission.
  • Use the proofofbrain.io front-end.
  • This week's contest starts 08/8/21 @ 00:00 UTC

Thank you @scholaris and congrats to everyone who took part, with special congrats to @alekst7 who blows me away every week with his submissions. You set and maintain the bar at a high standard :-) Congrats to the other winners too for high quality content. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading everyone's entries this week; still getting around to the last few but the diversity, thought and engagement that has gone into them has been great! Let's keep rolling with wotw and engagement.

I guess you didn't change that, that's maybe related to the word ''Spectrum''.

Posted via proofofbrain.io

Whaaaat? Thanks! Fixed and updated. It's is now officially rest time, lol.

Is Caluman ok??? I know he has been gone like a week (we skipped his chosen word for last week, which I posted my article I had been saving).

I did that before you posted this or I could have worked paradise in :) Now I will just have to write an extra chapter this week :) ... Please tell him he is missed!

I think he knows he’s missed. I think things IRL are just hectic for him right now.

Posted via proofofbrain.io

Hopefully things are better soon, am glad that you heard from him :)

By the way, I put the wotw tag in my story that I wrote for last week as it's a series, I hope that was ok?

That's fine.

Fantastic and well done everyone who competed. Thank you for engaging in such a great contest!

Congrats to all winners!
Paradise... Here we come! 🌴😁

Looks like this is gonna be a fun ride. Congratulations to all winners!

Paradise! Paradise! Paradise! Oh my world, I fucking love that word(Paradise). Whenever i come across that word(paradise) i automatically have this positive feeling and i can't really tell why. Basically because when i come across the word(paradise) I start imagining and fantasizing about a place with no worries or boredom in it, sort of like a fairy tale story where you see all the good things of life. Just like a paradise is supposed to be.
Until i truly and eventually find out why i always got this positive feeling, Let me keep on inagining and fantasizing....😊😇

I'm used to seeing @calumam always and I forget it's up to you now. And I end up losing the team on the day of posting. Glad I still saw it in time!

Posted via proofofbrain.io

I'm glad you did too. I'll be keeping this going for about two more weeks before taking a break until Cal's return. It's his contest after all and I don't want to sully his goals for his project with my own.
