Highest Ranked Entries for THE USA

Postby Deb Porter » Thu Jan 22, 2009 5:32 pm

Now that our winners have had a little bit of time in the spotlight, it's time to give a pat on the back to all those who didn't quite make it to the top, but did very well.

If your entry appears on any of these lists, you did very well.

Love, Deb

Lots of great stories on the USA! Congratulations winners!

Thanks for all the encouraging comments on my entry. Placing this week means so much. Though I wrote it in an hour, it's a very significant piece to me. It was a busy week, and an emotional one as Wednesday would've been my father's 80th birthday. I live in a different state so I couldn't go to the cemetery. I woke up Thursday morning and it hit me...write about his immigration, for the Challenge, but mostly as my birthday gift to him. I do want to polish it up, and maybe expand it, if I can find a place to have it published.
