I Won, I Won!

A couple of weeks ago I entered The Christmas Letter (a short story) in the Faithwriter's Christmas Writing Contest. This morning I received a notice that my story had taken 3rd place (out of 60 entries). The big prize? $15.00!

Here's what they said about the judging...

We had over sixty entries and three judges located in different parts of the USA. Each judge read all entries and narrowed it down to their top five with no discussions with the other judges. The first time the fifteen submissions were brought together, two judges had four of the same entries. All three judges had three of the same entries. The judges were quite surprised themselves and felt God must be involved.

I'm so excited because lately I've really been stalled in my writing and doubting my writing abilities. Here's a link to the story in case you want to read it (and why wouldn't you?).
