What an incredible list of names! Congratulations on your fantastic stories this year. You have taught me lots by setting a high standard of writing. Here's to another great year. Whoo-hoo, Debbie!
In the twilight of my years, may His Light shine more brightly.
THRILLED TO BE A 500 MEMBER!
That's 129 names up there! (If I counted right) Congratulations to everyone!
I look forward to seeing who makes it next year (Karlene, Jim to name just a couple)--it's going to happen. It's exciting to see the growth among all the writers. FW is a nurturing community.
And when it comes right down to it, it's the writing itself that counts for everything important.
On we go!
Woo hoo!!! Some of those people need to get on over here to the boards and make friends with us!!
Thank you Jan!!
Psst: Jan, I think there's a typo in Sally's name (Hananm)
A resounding Hear, Hear to that Lisa (or is that here, here ????) Wonderful list and thanks for your compilation Jan (extra fast posting it too!)
I am very honored too. A warm congrats to everyone!
I'm confused on the numbers... call me blond... or old?
Pamela, the numbers are the sums of your EC wins. Let's say Susie won three times--a first place, a 7th place, and a 9th place. She'd get
10 points for the 1st place
4 points for the 7th place
2 points for the 9th place
...for a total of 16 points.
Oh, I see. Thanks! Even though I'm WAY at the bottom of the list, I'm honored to be seen amongst such wonderful writers!
WhooHoo You guys rock! I have been so awed at the talent here. I learn something new each week, and WILL be up there one day! (If only I can get my trigger finger to settle down and sit on the story just a little longer. Maybe something will hatch...)
I am honored to be counted among the great writers here. This has been a wonderful experience, and I haven't even been here a year yet! (Although my FW birthday is during the conference....isn't that fun?)
Congrats to everyone who made it on the list this year....it is truly an honor!
