Now, onto the winners:
- 1st place winner: Barbara Ellingson! "I watch the children." Brilliant. Please email me and tell me what you would like as your prize. My agent OR my editor. Query or MS pages.
- 2nd place goes to: Jessica Cora her entry reminded me so much of my favorite authors. Virginia Wolf, Sylvia Plath, and most of all, Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Please email me so I have your email address so I can send you your giftcard!
- 3rd place goes to The Dharma Diva It was the last line. Moved me to tears. I can't wait to read more of your work... so I'm thrilled to be able to ask you to email me your query OR ten pages of an MS for me to edit.
BUT, please, please know that you are ALL winners. It takes a certain kind of bravery to put your amazing words up for review in a public forum. And what I know about all of you, every single contestant, is that you will all succeed in this business because of your fearlessness. It is an essential quality.
Thank you all so much.
And guess what? I'm going to run ANOTHER contest beginning Friday! Come back and check it out!
