Congratulations to all the names on all the lists up there. So many perspectives on the topic this week--that in itself was pretty cool.

A special congrats to Chely--an inspired story for sure!

On we go!

Wow! What an amazing list of winners! Some of my friends that I haven't seen up there in a while have now returned!

Michele – So happy to see you snag first place! Of course a top 10 list without you would be weird. :)

Laury, Lisa, Tim, Allison, Beth and Shirley – I’m thrilled to see you get top honors this week.

Kristen, Laura, and Karen – Haven’t seen you guys up there in a while (maybe you were and I just missed it). Whatever the case, it is nice to see all of you on the top 10 list this week.

Glynis, Karlene, and Mick – Extremely glad to see you earning top honors in the advanced category. You are all great writers and deserve it.

I recognize all the EC winners this week and the majority of the level winners as well. You guys all did an awesome job, and you should be proud! I didn’t get to leave many comments this past week, but I did have a chance to read many of the entries, and I enjoyed them very much.

I'm so excited! Thanks to everyone who rode my roller coaster of an entry. I have a love/hate relationship with them. I'm OK coming down, but actually am terrified of the trip up. Tick...Tick...Tick...

This morning #1 son discovered he was finally tall enough to ride the coaster at the zoo BY HIMSELF. Banner day.

Congratulations one and all. The judges were able to recognize not only some great writing, but great writers as well.

Way to go! :party
