I’ve never made it beyond the status of ”also ran” in any contest I’ve ever entered. Dan’s “Word Weaver” was one of 3 I entered in November. The other two don’t make their selections public until February. This is a good start!
Now comes the wait to see how high up this list I end up. Either way you are going to get the chance to read it at some point on Dan’s site. Then you will be able to make your own judgement.
