:clap :clap :clap Well done to all the winners this week. This week I've read about twenty entries or so and many were entertaining and well-written. Congratulations. :clap :clap :clap


Thank you judges for the highly recommend. It's been a long, dry spell where I haven't written for a quite some time so this was extremely encouraging.
In the twilight of my years, may His Light shine more brightly.

THRILLED TO BE A 500 MEMBER!

Thank-you, judges; especially for overlooking the "week-chocked gully" which should have read: weed-choked gully. Sigh, I will never make it as an editor; but it won't keep me from trying.

Congratulations to all on this week's list; I'm continually impressed with the different ways the challenge entries are understood.

Take care - Loren

Well done, Faithwriters. The winning entries were outstanding, and among the remaining entries there could be found many quite publishable works. It sure does seem to me that the standard of writing in the challenges keeps rising higher and higher.

Hey, they ought to publish the whole lot of them!

Congratulations everyone!

So the Masters almost pulled off their plans to take back the EC list - your plans were thwarted by super-writing-girl Maggie Bowling from the beginners! Way to go Maggie!!! :superhappy :clap

Seriously though, how lovely to see so many being blessed by the encouragement of an EC, or a placing, or a Highly Recommended. Well done to you all. :D

Blessings,

Helen

What a great mixture of old and new winners. CONGRATULATIONS ALL!!.

A big shout out to all us "non-winners" :D who bask in the glory of writing, and consider winning as icing on the cake. So, enjoy your slice of cake, and next time there may a bit of icing for you, too.

LOL ... yes, it was noted, and pretty much ignored. We aren't going to throw a good entry out of the running because of a few little typos. :D

Congratulations to all our winners, especially to those receiving their first award.

Love, Deb

Whew! How reassuring that is, especially for this week's Persuasion. I might be out of the running for other reasons, but at least not for the above. :D

A very belated, but heart-felt thank you - we are all so blessed to have such a great outlet for our writing! EC, Placing or not; every entry is a winner!

Here's some encouragement to all those waiting to jump in - do it! It seems we all can push that "creative button" when given a deadline & topic - you just have to find that button!

Thanks again to Deb & all who give of their time and talent to encourage the rest of us - Here's some water for you, Deb:

The generous soul will be made rich,
And he who waters will also be watered himself. Proverbs 11:25 NKJ

Blessings -
Gwen
