And The Winner Is Announced...



First off, I can't tell you how much FUN the "What If?" Fairytale Blogfest was! I love flash fiction and I love reading from talented writers. There were so many entries that made me LOL (Go Comedy!), made me nod with respect (Go Plot Twisters!), made me want to throw my shoe at the computer (Go Tragedy Peeps!), and most of all swoon (Go Team Love!)

And I'm sure you can predict what I'm going to say next...

Yes, I'm that cliche...

It *was* hard to choose...

But the winner of Team Love Story is...

Hope Roberson! 

There was something about Hope's piece that really grabbed me. Aside from the great writing, I really felt the physical tension and chemistry between the words... there was this definite pull that drew me right into the story and the characters felt like real people with real passions. The piece had a nice build (even though the ending was tragic! Hope, what are you doing to us??? Rewrite the ending PLEASE!)

So Hope, you are the winner of a FULL MANUSCRIPT CRITIQUE from ME.

To go read Hope's piece, click here. 

But really, to all my Love Peeps, I'm floored with the talent in this blogging community. There wasn't a piece that I didn't see great talent in and that I didn't enjoy. Thanks so much for participating!

Huge thanks to Mark Koopmans, Cassie Mae, and the lovely Leigh Covington for being my partners in crime. You guys ROCK. To go check out their winners, click on the links below:

Hope you are all having a fabulous week! I know I'm excited for fall, school, and solid writing time.

Red. Head. Out. :D
