Two More Terrific Tales

Today I’m sharing the winner and second place stories from the November Word Weaver contest from Dan Alatorre’s website. They are both excellent and well deserve their placement on the top of the heap. Also in Dan’s post today are first details of how you can enter the next Word Weaver contest. You get a professional critique from Dan, just for entering. And there are great opportunities to have your work noticed across Dan’s international network. https://danalatorre.com/2017/12/21/word-weaver-writing-contest-november-2017-1st-place-winner/ Continue reading Two More Terrific Tales

Third Place and Proud of it!

So the waiting is over now, for me. Joint third is a good place to be when you’ve never won anything before, and after seeing the quality of the opposition I’m more than a little chuffed! Actually, of course, the waiting isn’t over. Tomorrow comes the pleasure of seeing the two stories the judges deemed better than mine. via Word Weaver Writing Contest November 2017: 3rd Place Continue reading Third Place and Proud of it!

Two More Great Stories – and the Tension is Mounting.

Long-listed!

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. via HERE ARE YOUR FINALISTS in the November 2017 Word Weaver Writing Contest Continue reading Long-listed!
