And the Winner is....

The alarm announced 5:20 and I hopped out of bed. Today was the day. I rushed to my computer and waited, rather impatiently, really, for it to boot to life. ”Why do these things take soooo long?” Finally, it was alive enough for me to open my email.

I’d pretty much talked myself out of winning Scribbit’s April Writing Contest. Last night, I lay in bed, trying to pray and ignore those nasty little voice that tell me I should get a real job. My own tiny voice could barely be heard above the din, “But…I can write. It’s a gift God gave me…”

Yeah, whatevah.

So imagine my surprise at WINNING!!!!


Wow! Thanks Michelle at Scribbit for hosting the contest. Thank you Elizabeth at Planet Nomad for judging the contest.

There were some truly awesome entries and I really hope you’ll stop by these very talented writers blogs.

Here are the MOST honorable mentions:

Mozi Esme Entry: Clean Underwear, Cheerios, and Gloryland

Musings in Mindanao Entry: Whenever I Go Home, I Leave Home

Marybeth Whalen Entry: I Can't Go Home Again

Never a Dull Moment Entry: My Home Away from Home

CommuniKATE Entry: The Heartbeat of My Home

Ima on (and off) the Bima Entry: Sedar Night


Gosh! I'm just so surprised and so thrilled! I think I'll go make a cup of tea (still not drinking coffee, grumble, grumble) and maybe do a little writing :)
