These lessons, by one of our most consistent FaithWriters' Challenge Champions, should not be missed. So we're making a permanent home for them here.

The prize for last week's contest goes to...

Postby glorybee » Sun Aug 18, 2013 5:03 pm

In an effort to drum up interest in these writing classes, I said that I'd give a prize to a randomly chosen person who replied to last week's class. I wrote the names of those who responded in order of their first appearance on the thread, and came up with this list:

1. Theresa
2. Cat
3. Steve
4. Phee
5. Shann
6. Colin
7. Mike
8. Ellen
9. Lillian
10. Graham
11. Vonnie
12. Rachel

Then to get a random number, I went to a random number generator online, and I got this:
True Random Number Generator
Min: 1
Max: 12
Result:
10
Powered by RANDOM.ORG

So...Graham, if you're reading this, here's your prize: You may choose from these 3 options.

1. A free critique of any challenge piece (or any other piece of a similar length)
2. A free story, poem, or devotional if you have a blog, newsletter, or other something that needs original content
3. A $10 Amazon gift card

Let me know what you'd like!

Aw! I missed it by one. :(

But I will wipe that frown off my face with a happy dance for Graham. :superhappy


A big Congratulations Graham. Would be nice to know what you choose. If you haven't had one done, Jan gives awesome critiques.

Blessings,

Oh wow! Doesn't that make me a double winner. First I get the awesome lesson; and I'm not joking, I did think it was awesome and enjoyed it very much. And then I benefit from a great prize. Jan you are generous beyond words.

The prize I choose is a no-brainer; I pick the critique. It is late at night right now and I'm off on a day trip early tomorrow, so with your permission I'll pick up on this in a day or two. Maybe to make it easy I'll just pick an entry that is already loaded on the site and look forward to what I know will be a great and invaluable learning experience.

Just a thought here; which you can feel free to pick up on or not. If you are going to do the critique work anyway, I would not feel bad about the critique, and my failings, being made public. You could perhaps make it a lesson and we could all benefit from seeing not only how a professional approaches a critique but also learn step by step how to improve our writing. I don't mind being exposed in this manner if we can all benefit from it, and you would not need to feel that you have to hold back; which would be self defeating anyway. Just a thought.

Back in a day or two; blessings, Graham

P.S. This is also a way that everybody can share in the prize.
May we all get eyes to see and ears to hear,
A Revelation of His Word, crystal clear.
Admitting our need to be drawn in,
Less of self, more of Him.

My prayer for us all.
God bless us with the Revelation of His Word, Graham

Graham, that's very gracious. Tell you what--you let me know what piece you want critiqued, and once I've finished the critique, I'll send it to your email first. Then you can decide whether you want it made public.

I'm sending you a PM with my email address.

Jan, I see you gave a free critique as a prize for one of your lessons, could you not set up (if your not too busy) an ongoing paid for critique service similar to what Deb ran before she became too busy to be a front person in here?
I used this service in the past before Deb became too busy.

Colin, I might consider it. I'll have to check with Deb, and to do some thinking about how it would fit into my schedule, etc.

That's funny you guys mentioned that, I have sent an email and a PM to Deb trying to pay for a critique and an edit (of a longer work) through her editing service Finesse but she never replies.

Didn't know that she had stopped doing that stuff because of other commitments.
