I really like this!! The title caught my attention and the writing kept my interest.
I hope you win!!
"Three days in the wilderness did strange things to gratitude and devotion." I love that line. It states the reality and to the point.

It is a good statement to remember during any wilderness experience, for we all go through them...and all too often it is easy to let strange things happen to our gratitude and devotion. I hope I remember it.

Your title stood out, too. Great job writing about a not-so-dumb boy.
amazing! superb! and a few more good superlatives from me anyway
Hi Remi. I just wanted to leave a quick note to let you know your entry, Exodus: through the Eyes of a Dumb Boy, actually did very well in the Bitter and Sweet Challenge. Although you didn't receive an award, you made it into the Highest Rankings for Level 1, placing 11th in that Level.

There were a lot of entries this week, particularly in Level 1, and the competition was even more intense than normal for that level, with the 1st and 2nd place winners making it into the Editor's Choice. The standard was exceptionally high. So you deserve a pat on the back. :-)

If you'd like to check the highest rankings for yourself, you can find them here:

The highest rankings are posted every Thursday evening on the Message Boards.

Hope to see you at the FaithWriters' Conference in August. It’s going to be an amazing time of inspiration, information and encouragement. (If I’ve already mentioned that to you, forgive me. We’re just so excited about letting members know about this great gathering.)

With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
