Greetings, story writers! There are two weeks and one day left until December 31, the last day to turn in a story for the Circle C story-writing contest. So far, I'm excited to see 28 entry forms! Whoo-hoo! However, an entry form is a far cry from the actual story. I have received 11 stories so far, and they have been very fun to read. I'm so glad I'm not one of the judges. They will have a tough time deciding first, second, and honorable mentions.
My grand hope is that those of you who have mailed in entry forms actually have stories to go along with them. I hope you have not overdone yourselves with writing Fan Stories and have no time now to write a contest story. I figured fan stories were fun practice for the big event.
Serious note here: In order to run the contest, I must have at least eight (8) stories for EACH category: 6-9, 10-13, and 14-17. If I don't receive at least that many, that category will not be judged. Sad but true. Right now, the only category that has more than 8 entry forms is ages 10-13. So, get those stories and forms turned in! I SO want to give away $$$ and prizes and make a book of your stories!
