AND THE WINNER IS...


Thanks to everyone who entered my First Four Sentences Contest.  I hope you had fun and got some good input on your first four sentences...The first winner  out of the entries is MUSHERS DON'T SAY MUSH(My lovely daughter drew entry number 14 out of a bowl.)  The second winner is Susan Fields(I wrote everyones name down after each comment, assigned them a number and then used random.org to find the winner. There were 90 comments, excluding mine!)  I'll contact both of you via email for your addresses.

Do you have a writing goal for this week?  Do you have a query goal?

  1. Congrats to the big winner! And 90 comments--woo-hoo!

    My writing goal this week is to get through 5 chapters of this revision layer.

  3. 90 Comments, that's great!!
    My writing goal right now is to set things aside and wait for my readers to get back to me. I'm really trying to get some things done in the house that have been bugging me, but the words are calling me back, big time!

  4. Jill--Good luck with your revisions. I'm finishing revisions on a beginning chapter book and then sending it out...

    Shannon--Thanks for joining in. :) I wish I had been bright enough to enter something I wrote in it....

    Judith--Do you have beta readers? I need to hang some curtains myself, but would rather be writing too. :)

  8. Yay! I won a contest - how fun! Thanks for a fantastic contest, Sharon - it was fun to do and I learned a lot by reading all the comments (especially on my own entries.) :)

    My writing goal for this week? To get through revisions on another two chapters (it would be three, but the kids are off school 1-1/2 days and Madeline makes her First Communion on Thursday, Easter on Sunday, etc.)

  10. Kitty--I'm sure your new kitty, Charlie, will inspire more than 140 words...Have a great week!

    Susan--Congratulations! Best wishes on getting your revisions done with the schedule changes for the week.

    Terri--Don't be so hrd on yourself. If you couldn't work over the weekend, it probably means you needed the break. Have a good week!

  12. I thought this was a wonderful opportunity. I think you can get a better sense of a work with four sentences as opposed to just one or the first 25 words, etc. I learned a lot just by going through the other entries and seeing what worked. I am also grateful for all the feedback on my own post as it will motivate me to keep revising and making my work stronger.

    Thanks to Sharon and to those who commented!
