We Have A Winner!

What a close competition. Our 2015 Spec Faith Winter Writing Challenge came down to a 2-vote difference!

2015_Spec_Faith_Winter_Writing_ChallengeWhat a close competition. Our 2015 Spec Faith Winter Writing Challenge came down to a 2-vote difference! We had four fantastic finalists to choose from, but in the end, two that pulled ahead.

Congratulations to our winner: Bethany A. Jennings. I’ll be contacting her privately to arrange her gift card from either Amazon or B&N.

Our second place finisher, nudged out by a measly two votes, was Janeen Ippolito. All voting results should now be visible in the poll.

Special thanks to all of you who participated: the entrants for sharing their stories with us, the visitors who gave initial comments and thumbs up (as best as you could, considering the site problems), and those who voted in the poll.

Contests like this are fun. The thing that continues to amaze me is how varied the stories are even though they all begin with the same first sentence. What a creative bunch of writers we have participating in these challenges! Hope you all enjoyed the stories.

Congratulations, Bethany!!! I loved your story, and I really think you should explore more of it. It has the potential for a very unique and intriguing plot!

Thanks, Hannah!  Good job to you too!  🙂  I do hope to extend my little piece into a longer short story someday.  It has some pretty nifty twists I want to put into it. 😀

Oh, I’m so excited!!!  Thank you, everyone, for voting for me – and for running this contest! 😀  Can’t wait to use my gift card…obviously, to buy books. 😀

And congrats to Janeen for coming in at second place!  It was a close one. 🙂
