I was a little disappointed that I didn't win anything.I
thought that I would at least get an honorable mention.
After thinking about it for awhile,I decided that I did win!

I have never been encouraged to write stories before.
I had wanted to be a writer since I was 13 years old.
What I wanted to write about was sci-fi horror.I was told
that wasn't appropriate subjects for a young lady to write
about.My writing creativity was crushed and discouraged
for over 40 years.

What I did win was the confidence to try again.Thank-you
very much for the writer's status on my profile.

I was about to give up waiting for the results as it seemed they would never be done judging it. Congratulations to everyone who entered a story and way to go ladyinwaiting! I was glad to see you took first place. I believe your story deserved it for sure. Well done everyone!

So when is the next contest?

Me neither... In fact, I've given up waiting for a certain portion of the judging panel to get back to me with their choices.

Instead, I went with the 'portion' that DID get back to me. One thing for sure, it was much easier than if all the judges had come back with different picks. Usually, that's where I come in to try to reach some sort of consensus (but it certainly wasn't required in this case).

So when is the next contest?

Likely for hallowe'en. I'll start the contest in late August, to be ended by (and the winners picked for) October 31.

I propose a 2-month contest and 1000 words as a minimum (no maximum).

One thing for sure... I already have 1 judge who has volunteered for the next contest and am looking for at least 4 others, preferably those who have writer status, but if any do not come through with their choices in a reasonable amount of time, then we might have to re-think writing contests altogether.

ALL the stories were excellent, btw, and I enjoyed reading them. I wish all participants could be 1st Place Winners, but, then again, it wouldn't be much of a contest, would it?

Well done to the winners, and a much deserved pat on the back!!

Also a very sincere thank you to masqua and the other judges for taking the time and effort to organise and judge the entries., it must have been extremely time consuming.

We do appreciate it!!

Honourable mention! Good stuff!

Well done to the winners, and all the judges for taking the time to read through them all. And you Masqua obviously for organising these contests. I missed out on last year's Hallowe'en, so I'm looking forward to this one, I'm guessing it's going to be a horror themed contest?

Holy Smokes Guys! I never even momentarily entertained the prospect that I might win first place!

There were so many wonderful submissions this time -- there wasn't a single story that I didn't admire and enjoy.

Many thanks to Masqua and the Judges Panel, and to everyone who posted on my story, and Congratulations to other winners!
Honorable Mentions are Winners too!
Thanks, again and again, I'm absolutely delighted. And tickled pink too!!
