Hi Challengeers.

Now that our BEGINNING and END winners have had a little bit of time in the spotlight (and congratulations to all of them!), it's time to give a cheer to all those who didn't quite make it to the top, but still did very well. So if your entry appears on any of these lists, you deserve a pat on the back.

Love, Deb

If this goes through,

CONGRATULATIONS!

I see a whole bunch of my favorite reads there-guess I haven't lost my good taste after all.

You guys are great writers!

Blessings to all,

Wow! My foray into sci-fi actually didn't do too badly! I am really surprised! :shock:

Anyway, congratulations to all those who placed on the Top 40 and Top 15 lists! I was so impressed with many of the entries this past week. There are lots of incredibly creative and talented people who participate in the Challenge! :D

Blessings,
Myrna Joy

:shock: Boy was I surprised to see my name in the list again! It's been a long time. I was not expecting that at all. Wow, wow, wow...

OK, I'll come down off of cloud 9 now. :mrgreen:

Congratulations everyone! I need to do some reading... I didn't do any this week, nor did I hint or throw a brick... :(

Again, congratulations everyone!

Hugs,
Pamela

I had to smile, because Lollie made the masters top 15 list, and she entered that level by accident. Good job Lollie! :D :D :D

Must admit, I had a chuckle about that as well. A master most definitely in the making. :mrgreen: I catch 99% of all slips into Masters, but Lollie slipped right by me. I think I thought she was meant to be there.

Love, Deb

Congratulations to all the winners. This was probably some of the best writing I've seen which make the stories a pleasure to read. Yeah, it was rather embarrassing to realize I put my story in the wrong category. I'll be there one of these days but also have to admit I have a few more things to learn first. Thanks for the encouraging words Joshua and Deb.

:grouphug


P.S. I'm glad I could make you chuckle...God DOES have a sense of humor for sure!
