I just got my laptop back after a bout with a few viruses ("virusi"?? - anyway they kept me from entering for "Wow") and it's great to see all the WONDERFUL writing, and the worthy top ten, and all of that. Not to mention my own "Highly Commended" which blew me away!!!!
Congratulations to all winners!!
Competition does seem to be getting stiffer - for which I'm grateful. I'm stretching, and besides the fellowship (which touches my heart), that's the other reason I belong to FW: I need to grow and stretch and hone skills and test myself....
It just tickles me to read all the posts from first-time winners (others as well, but especially the first-timers, because I remember my "first") and the great excitement over that. YEE-HAWWW! Or to put it more spiritually, HALLELUJAH!!
SO grateful I'm here!!! And I count you all as dearly loved (and loving) friends.
