No Longer A Writing Contest Virgin

I did something this week that I'm very very proud of. I entered my very first writing contest. It's the Great Big Awesome (and short) Fiction Contest over at Moon Topples' blog.

The story could only be 500 words and had to somehow fit into a general theme of "vision". It was a great theme because there are lot's of places you can take it, not just the, "You need to get your eyes checked," direction or the, "I just don't think you have the vision this position requires," direction.

You can read all the entries and vote for ONLY ONE STORY (I know, so hard to choose just one!) by leaving a comment in the comments section. Just make sure to say who you are in your comment because anonymous votes are not accepted. Voting ends at 11:59 pm CST on February 13th.

I'd love to tell you which story I wrote but that would probably be stacking the deck/breaking the rules so I'll refrain. I'll only say that there are no sly, sardonic, wanna-be witty observations of folks being themselves in Starbucks.


I know which one is yours. I'm sure of it! It's a great story.

I entered, too. And mine has nothing to do with the Academy Awards. :)

I'll definitely be very impressed if it turns out your guess is right and you really do know! It's sort of different from stuff I write on here, you know? I printed them all out to read this weekend so I'm excited to dig into them...
I have a guess, too! Oh, right. Nevermind.

I probably shouldn't admit this, but I've now hosted more fiction contests than I have entered. And, yes, this is the first contest I have hosted.

I'm nevertheless gladdened and flattered that you decided to enter the contest.

So you're no longer a hosting virgin but your still a contest entering one. Well, that's probably a good thing for us. We all would probably lose if you'd submitted a story.

Thanks! I hope you enjoy all the stories!

I need rooting for! ;)
