Oh. I love this. Wonderful writing and really authentic voice and "feel" throughout.
Excellent entry!
I'm going to go read it again! :)

Beautiful, catching the soul of the land as well as the voice of the MC perfectly.
I felt as though I was reading someones journal. Well done.
I knew I'd like this as soon as I started reading, and I was right. :) You could make this into a great YA adventure novel by writing about his entire trip north and back. I enjoyed it a lot!
I could really feel the adventure in this. Well done.
Wow.. this is beautiful. Almost poetic. I am going to read this to my kids. I know they will love it!

This is masterful, well deserving of EC.
So smooth and beautiful. I enjoyed this very much and would love to see more of this style. Thank you for sharing your gift.
I so enjoyed this piece, a view into the heart of a "thinker". Congratulations on your EC, and first place in Advanced. Say, why don't you try getting some of those novels published?? :)
