Thank you all for your congrats on my first place position and 5th place in EC. I prayed and asked the Lord last week to let me win first place if He wanted me to continue to write. He spoke loud and clear. :D

Tricia, that's certainly got a lot going for it--action, conflict, great word choices...I'd definitely keep reading. My only misgiving is that it's awfully similar to a pivotal scene in 'Gone With the Wind'. Have you seen it? Jan, No, I did not realize the similarity to God With the Wind . I read t...

How about this sentence, Jan?


I ducked behind a chair as a porcelain figurine whizzed by my head and splintered into the wall behind me.

1. Fireplace 2. Hell 3. Campfire 4. Terminate from work 5. Anger Out of the Box : Pillar of Fire. God used to lead the Israelites in the Wilderness. Jan, I wracked my brains to come up with a unique idea for "eek." All I could come up with was a mouse story. Can you give us an idea of what else we c...

Sue returned to her hometown in Cleveland after living in South Africa for more than 20 years. As she stepped from the plane, a middle aged man approached, grabbed her bag, and ran to a waiting car. Sue exclaimed, "I hope he likes Macadamian nuts because that's what's in the bag!" I can see why an e...

Jan, here's my homework: Almost as soon as we were in the car, Ol’ Blue started barking and pawing at the door. I opened it and he vaulted out, running toward the house. A choking, black smoke billowed out the screen door. We are in the car, Ol’ Blue barks, and paws at the car door. I open it, he va...

The only one I question is 'gruesome.' If Jan is a homicide detective, her work might be gruesome, but 'gruesome' and 'weary' don't necessarily go hand-in-hand. But--who knows? Maybe she is! Thanks for the critique, Jan. I guess when I think of work, I think of my job as an RN for 30 years. Most of...

Hi Jan, here's my homework assignment: Weary from a gruesome day at work, Jan ambled inside her house, removed her shoes, and trudged to the kitchen. Her mouth watered as she thought of a cola and piece of chocolate cake waiting for her in the refrigerator. "Ow!" she yelled, grabbing her left foot. ...
