A Note to Everyone Who Entered

Thank you. This was a fun contest! (For me, anyway.) Please do not be discouraged if you are not among the winners this time. There were many entries that were highly original and/or beautifully written--but deserved to be part of a much bigger tale. Unfortunately, the contest called for a 250-word story that could stand on its own. Next time, maybe we'll ask for longer stories. You guys certainly have the talent--all I need is more time to read!!

PS: I was totally serious about the rules for voting! ONLY blog regulars, please!

Thanks so much for doing the contest! It was a lot of fun writing & checking the updates. (The Reader's Choice was a great idea.) It would be awesome if there were more contests soon!

I do have a question: Who was the guest judge?

I liked entering the competition, I thought it was fun :) It was a little out of my league though. I'm just an rookie at writing, plus I'm only in sixth grade ;D Fun all the same, though! :)

Yeah I was fun even though I didn't win I'm glad my story was among the readers choice thing (story 3) that's good enough for me

All the stories that won were really good. Thanks for having the contest! It was good to have a time limit to write, make me actually do it and not just think about it. Who ever wrote the yeti one was very imaginative, that was pretty great.
