Today’s blog post announces the contest winners!
Sometimes it pays off to wait until the end… as evidenced by last night’s Hail Mary entry, “Rooted,” by Melinda T. Falgoust! Read Melinda’s story in the first wowchallenge comments section. Congratulations, Melinda. Please e-mail me a good mailing address for you, because you’ve won:
Prize 1: A copy of Q & A A Day: 365 Questions, 5 Years, 1,825 Answers. This book was published by the Crown Publishing Group, a division of Random House. It’s been a lifesaver for me in terms of writing, teaching, deep questions, and truly just thinking.
For those of you who were curious: the two pictures from the first Week of Writing prompt were taken in New York City and in Barcelona!
As for Prize 2, congratulations to e-mail entry contestant Bob M. from Santa Fe. Bob M. wins a FULL edit of up to 10 pages of his writing, double-spaced. (My credentials include two stints as a editorial board member, 18 months as a copywriter for LivingSocial, a Creative Writing M.F.A., a number of published works, two novels in the running, and five years as a professor.) Contact me for details, Bob M.!
Congratulations to both winners. This contest was a lot of fun. Stay tuned for the next one come fall. Until then – keep writing and living well, everyone.
