Carrot Ranch Rodeo #1 -Dialogue -Winners & My Entry

So, the Carrot Ranch Rodeo was with us through the month of October, and I think I took part in pretty much all of the contests, bar one.

Having received an honourable mention in the TUFFest Challenge, I was more than happy, and am really delighted to share the winners of this first contest, judged by His Geoffleship, Chelsea Owen and Esther Chilton.

The first contest was to write a 99-word piece in pure dialogue. Not an easy task, I have to say, but the honourable mentions and winners were really well deserved!

Click here to read the winners entries and a special mention to Sarah Brentyn who was awarded both second AND first place! The contests are blind judged too, so I think you can see the talent in this woman!

We had this photo as our fantastic prompt.

I do love His Geoffleship!

And here is my (non-winning) take!

“Whatcha looking at?”


“Look, dear! He’s trying to say something to me!”


“Oh do be careful, Mr Tortoise. If you strain your neck too much, you might just do something to yourself.”


“I do wonder what these animals are thinking. Is he just making random noises? Or is he trying to communicate with me?”

“Mmmmnnnngghrrrr!!! I AM trying to say something!”

“Geoff, dear, we need to move along now.”


“Mmmmmnnnnnggghhh! No! Don’t go! For the first time I found a man with a neck to rival mine! I’ll even forgive you calling me a ‘he’!”

Hope you enjoyed my little mischief!

    A lovely entry, Ritu. I didn’t write about the picture at all – Oops. I probably didn’t read the rules properly. I also posted my entry today.

    Great flash, Ritu! You proved yourself to be a formidable writer as one of the Fab Five in the Tuffest Ride, too!

    I love your entry!! This was a fun one. Here’s mine

    Reptile Retirement

    “Hello, Howard”
    “Hi, Dave”
    “How do you like it in here?”
    “It’s OK, but I miss my wife.”
    “Really? I didn’t think you liked her that much.”
    “Well, turtles don’t really show affection, but she was my soul mate.”
    “She was eighty years old when she died.”
    “Yup, she was just a little younger than me.”
    “So what do you miss about her?”
    “She always lifted my spirits when I was down. She saved the freshest lettuce leaves for me and…”
    “And what?”
    “She told me I was handsome.”
    “Are you blushing, Howard?”
    “Gosh, no, Dave. Turtles can’t blush.”
