FINISH THAT THOUGHT #26
Welcome back! We have our last contest of the year! It seems fitting that the contest should close as the ball drops in NYC...I don't know why, but that just seems cool. My Festive Challenge should be easier to incorporate this week. In the spirit of the new year, I'd like you to use any form of the word "resolution" or "resolve" anywhere in your piece. Have fun with it, and, as always, this is optional. I'm looking forward to reading your entries this week! Go write!
If you need to read the full version of the rules, go here. Otherwise, here's the short version:
1. Up to 500 words
2. Keep it clean (nothing rated R or above)
3. Start with the given first sentence.
4. Optional Special Challenge
5. Include Twitter/email, word count, Special Challenge accepted
6. The challenge is open for 24 hours on Tuesday EST
Oh, and feel free to change pronouns, punctuation, tense, and anything in brackets to fit the story/pov/tone. I'm not going to be TOO picky... Our judge however...
Our Judge today is Patrick Stahl also known as @patrickjstahl. Check out his blog here. Read his winning tale from last week here!
Your first sentence for FINISH THAT THOUGHT #26 is:
[I] thought pegasi were tough to ride until the Army got their first shipment of wyverns.

Make the protagonist non-human
AAAAAAAND WE'RE OFF!!!
