It wasn’t until a friend sent me an email this evening saying she was sorry I didn’t make the finalists that I learned … my story, Blizzard Blessings, didn’t make the cut! 😦
Of course, I was quite disappointed, but I’ve had half an hour to let it settle in. It’s okay, mostly. Yes, I would have loved for mine to be one of the twelve stories chosen of the one hundred entries, but I knew it was going to be a hard decision to make. I didn’t envy Susanna and her helpers at all. I think I would have been more shocked than I am disappointed had I been in the twelve finalists.
I will be voting but I have it down to two stories and can’t decide between them yet. I’ll let it wait and read them again tomorrow before voting.
PLEASE GO HERE AND VOTE FOR THE STORY YOU LIKE THE BEST. Thank you!
I haven’t given up on my little story, though. There may be something good in store for it yet.
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! 🙂
Liked your story. Mine didn’t make it either. There was an abundance of entries. Have read the winning entries, and can’t decide between a couple. Susanna does such an amazing job with her contests. So much work!
This is the first of Susanna’s contests I entered and it was worth it. I had trouble choosing but my vote has been cast even though I would like to select two or three of them.
Thanks for your comment, Patricia. 🙂

I didn’t make it either. I haven’t made it in a while, so I was only mildly disappointed. 🙂
It’s good that you keep trying and writing, Erik. 🙂
