I Won, I Won - or They Really Like Me!!!!

Well, I didn’t really win, but I came in second in the “First Kiss” contest at the Yellow Rose Valentine meeting. But for me, it was winning, because I wrote!! Yes folks, I stayed up until almost 3:00 Friday night/Saturday morning and wrote around 1,300 words!! That was the most I’ve written in almost 2 years and I’ll tell you right now, it felt good. And it’s a new story, not a re-working of old stuff that wasn’t really working for me. I got the reaction that I wanted – they laughed when they were supposed to, so everything was fantastic.

Sooo, how was your weekend? Both of you, or are there three of you out there now? By the way, at the bottom of the page you’ll find something about followers. This is some blogger application where you can sign up as a “follower” of my blog. Not that I’m some cult leader or anything. LOL Anyway, it would be nice to know who is reading this stuff – ‘cuz from what I understand, there are a few lurkers out there.

Anyway, my second place entry is too long to put here, so if you’re interested in reading it, let me know and I’ll send it to you. As long as I know who “you” are. Not really kidding there …..

It actually worked! I tried to be a follower on another site (for a contest) but the link never worked. Does that make me offical now? lol Actually I don't have a clue what it means hahaha Please send me your story - I would love to read it and congrats on the win.

Bebo stole the bottle of wine that I won.

Well, actually, she swapped it - the only wine that I like is red wine (which this was) but I can't drink it 'cuz it gives me a headache. :(

hey Congrats on your placing second in the contest and Yay on writing.

In answer to your post on Brandy's blog Hey Bailey, no I have 20 books to read, but I want to read these 5 before I start on the library books. I've been alternating between books bought and book got from library.

I would love to read your story.

Guilty party, right here. I'm a total lurker - but it's not that I don't want to say anything, it's that I can't think of something as interesting to say as you have. Seriously.

But I think I'm a follower for you... maybe not. But I'm one now and I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a copy of your story. Please?
