Here They Are The Rest of the Awesome Entries

What a wonderful exhibition of talent is on this page! I have posted most of the other entries in the contest. I feel truly blessed to have been able to read such great work.
A few points to remember:
1) I did no editing for spacing, etc. I am back to teaching responsibilities and had to get this posts up today. Otherwise, the postings would have waited forever.
2) The posts are not ranked. Readers who do not read all the way to the bottom of this page will miss some really great writing. By the way, in a few cases, writers did not provide a specific title, so I gave the stories a name. I hope that is OK.
3) I have added comments on what I liked about each story. In keeping with contest rules, I will not be saying why any story was not picked.
4) Writers, this is a chance to get your work noticed. Get your family and friends to this site. You should all be bold show-offs! You all have writing ability, but if others don't read your work, the word won't get out about how great you are.
Thanks Everybody,

PSS: The contest and its process was meant to be a celebration of talent. Negative comments on any entries, including the winning one, will be deleted. Some situations warrant criticism, this was never meant to be one of those. Just enjoy!


  1. Greetings, Kate.

    I just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to participate in this wonderful exercise. I know I thoroughly enjoyed it and I am enjoying reading the various entries.

    After getting to the bottom, I realized that the entry I sent to you on July 14th is not included. (sent from I'm wondering if you have not yet had a chance to post all entries or if perhaps my email to you got caught in the spam folder.

    Still, I did very much enjoy the challenge of the task and will be looking forward to future exercises that you choose to challenge us with.

    Thanks and blessings.

  3. I really wasn't expecting you to post the entry. Thank you for the kindness; you really didn't have to do it. I love this site and your work no matter what. :-)
