Re: Could be reason for less entries?

Thank you, Deb. I knew you would see this as more of an observation than a complaint. My love for FW is why I want to see it kept strong. :thumbs :thumbs

Could be reason for less entries?

Seems like it is becoming common for the Highest Rankings to be later than expected. :( When I first started entering the Challenge, it was like clockwork and it helped to keep me motivated.

Yes, Yes, and Yes to all the above. But, I'm going to drill down a little here. The STYLE of writing plays to the competition. Think with me here.

I am sooo pleased that one of my humorous ones did so well!!!

Thank you to the judges. My 3rd EC. I had a goal to try to improve enough to move into Level 4 within a year. I joined 2/1/09 so just barely.

But, I think this pleased my husband even more.

Humbly stepping in to say "Thank You" to the judges for my EC. It's been awhile and I was beginning to think I needed to go back to Beginners and start over.

Congrats to all winners.

There are some very good ones without a ribbon. I am in awe of the quality of writing offered.

I received so much pleasure from this week's entries...both from those that ranked high as well as many that didn't.

You never know whose life you may touch from your work. Sometimes we receive "acclaim from man" and sometimes it's treasure stored in Heaven.
