I was going to run with that, and then I watched last week's Top Chef. (Which seems to be the theme of the season) and their challenge just really hit me. I didn't want to interrupt the flow of our season when we got back by throwing in something new. (and I don't do that anyway) So I thought that the best bet was to make it a free topic. That way that other people, and not just current competitors could get into the mix.
There's only one of them, but it's a good one:
Their challenge was to cook something inspired by/as a tribute to the person who inspired them to start cooking.
It's not much of a jump to translate that into our terms, and very fitting for this to be the last topic of any kind going up in 2011...
Write an entry inspired by/as a tribute to the person or people who taught you the love of reading, and writing.
I could just say "Tribute", but I think that making this one clear is the way to go. ;)
