Ladies and gentlemen,
We are in the final two weeks of the countdown. In fourteen days, the five winning stories will be announced. Huzzah!
Shall we count down the last 14 days together? Time flies faster when you are with good friends. If I write a "countdown post" twice a week, maybe March 1st will be here before we know it. I could share something contest-related on Mondays and Thursdays. How does that sound?
Okay, here it goes.
I know we've all seen some of the wonderful stories that Rooglewood had to pick from. Maybe you read the blurbs shared in the September Show and Tell or on some of the blogs around here. Maybe you proofread a friend's story before she sent it. Maybe you wrote a great story and submitted this year. But I think we are all agreed that the Rooglewood team had an awesome set of stories from which to choose.
Now, of course, we don't know yet which stories Rooglewood picked, but I wanted to ask you: what is a story that you would have picked?
Better yet, which story looked great to you but was not written by anyone that you know. Not that we are trying to leave out people that we know because, if you are like me, you have some really talented writer friends. Instead, assume that all your friends are included. You want all of your friends to win PLUS this one other person. Who would it be?
Why do I want to know? Because it's fun to think about what this next contest holds. Whether you are a writer or a reader, March 1st is a date to look forward to.
So tell me: what is a great story that MIGHT end up in this year's anthology?
