I really like the way that you lead your readers to a gradual realization of the situation here. Very well done.

Poignant and very well done. I know a few young ladies who are growing their hair for donations. Lovely article.

This was really, really wonderful. Great description, smooth writing and an emotional story too. You won't be in beginners for long- not sure you belong here now. Keep writing!

I was so intent on looking for the mention of the Topic word - "Lock", that I almost missed the beautiful story. This is a great write, and a wonderful read...and so well written, too! I loved the descriptions of the colors, and especially the beauty of "God's way of saying Good Night to His creations - with a sunset. Very well done!
The twist here is that it's a lock of hair rather than a lock that would be on your door. I totally love the writing style here and that each color the main character picks up reminders her of some fond memory. I didn't think the main character needed to be sick to make this story work though, unless this is based on real events.
What a wonderful way to end this quarter!

Congrats! I'm so so happy for you. (I guess you have to move up now!)Awesome!

Hi Gwynn,

I'm just preparing all the winning entries for inclusion in the FaithWriters' Anthology for last quarter, and need to get a short bio note from you (written in the third person), to include with our "Meet Our Authors" section. If you are at all unsure what to write, it may be worth checking some of the bio notes at the end of the articles at FaithWriters' Magazine (http://www.faithwritersmagazine.com). Once you have your bio note ready, could you please send it through to me at debporter@breathfreshair.org

Thanks for that. Look forward to hearing from you.

With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator and Editor, FaithWriters' Magazine)
