Thanks to everyone who participated in my Valentine's Day six-word memoir contest. Fantastic job, everyone. There were 14 participants who submitted 53 entries. Let me tell you this was a difficult decision, so I've chosen three winners as follows:
First place: "Opening my heart opened my life" by Karen McConnaughey
Second place (tie): "I said no to your ring" by Quill Shiv
"It's been a century since you" by Caroline Gerardo
They're all very different, yet powerful and poignant. And don't you want to know the backstory for each one? I do!
I was only going to choose one winner but that was impossible. As promised, Karen will receive a copy of IT ALL CHANGED IN AN INSTANT, More Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous & Obscure.
Quill Shiv and Caroline will each receive an IT ALL CHANGED IN AN INSTANT magnetic bookmark and my new picture book bookmark. Please send your address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on Facebook.
Congrats to everyone! Well done. I'll have another contest in a month or so. Thanks for participating.
