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 email@example.com or message me on Facebook.
Congrats to everyone! Well done. I'll have another contest in a month or so. Thanks for participating.
Excellent! Congratulations to the winners, and thanks, Beth, for a fun contest!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Jan, for your great entries! This was a tough one. They were all so good.Delete
Sorry I missed out on this. Serves me right for not checking your blog more often.ReplyDelete
Congrats to the winners, and all who entered. What a fun way to celebrate a great holiday!
Thanks, Russell. I know. So many blogs to check. I have to pick and choose as well.ReplyDelete
Never worry, though, I plan to have two more six-word contests over the next three months. So check back in a couple of weeks! I'll post the contest on FB and Twitter, as well.
Oh, wow! I really hadn't anticipated winning anything. It was fun. Thank you. I'll send you an email shortly.ReplyDelete
Congrats to Caroline and Karen as well!ReplyDelete
