Happy Halloween

Looks like my story "Randomness" for Spooktoberfest came in first place (as judged by Dani) and runnerup (as judged by Jackie). I can't overstate how excited that makes me. There were some really good entries and I have no idea how they were able to decide.


Huge, huge thanks to Dani at Entertaining Interests and Jackie at Bouquet of Books  for putting together such an entertaining blogfest. There were upwards of 40 entries. It was fun to read them and they really got me in the mood for the festivities tonight. The kids always have fun.

Be safe out there. Here are some safety guidelines from the Department of Health and Human Services:

  1. You deserved the recognition. Your story stuck with me long after I read it. When I took my kids trick-or-treating last night, I remembered this story. Great work!

  7. When a story sticks with you long after the contest, that proves how strong of a writer you are!
