You did it! You voted for me in droves and propelled me to the top in the Flash Friday Fiction Dog Days of Summer contest! That means I WON, people! Thank you SO MUCH for all of your support, and patience with my pleas for votes. I couldn’t have done it without you.
Not only did you vote for me, but many of you took the time to tell me you’d read my story and really liked it. I can’t think of a better compliment than that.
In snagging first place, I’m now $25 richer. That is, until I use those ill-gotten (not really) gains to take some fellow writer friends out to dinner to celebrate this victory. Sounds reasonable for a use of contest winnings to me, don’t you think?
I hope those of you who enjoy writing consider participating in the weekly Flash Friday Fiction contest, if you’re not doing so already. It’s a whole lot of fun in a supportive community, and though I’ve been involved with it for less than a year, now I can’t imagine a week without it.
Thank you for making my little writer’s heart happy by supporting me in my quest for this Dog Days title. I’m thrilled! (And ready for pizza.)
