WOW! What a collection of great work! Way to go Joey with puting this bash together. Looking forward to the next one.

Thanks Revo. There are amazing entries and I tweeted yesterday for everybody to check them out.

All our entries on the blog are worth a read and a second read imho.

We will do this again, but try to make it even a bit more fun and relaxed.

I hope you do this again soon! I had my story all ready to submit when I realized that the deadline was 12 noon instead of 12 midnight! I missed the deadline. Crap! I have no regrets though because now I have a piece that I can work on further or save for another contest.

The entries I read were all fabulous. It will be hard to pick the winner. Good luck to everyone.

Thanks Robyn and I hope it becomes the beginning of something beautiful.

We'll do another one, but I will somehow attempt to make the next even more fun. At the end of the day, this contest was to kick off the amazing start of the blog (it's a relatively new one) and also to create some fun, flash fiction to help us out as authors.
You're sweet.

Even if I wasn't following this blog in time for my entry to count (I couldn't remember my Blogger info, so I just signed up for the email follow), it was a lot of fun to write another flash fiction piece (I'm addicted to them, lately)! I really appreciate that it's for a blog with real info and insight, too, and not just a one-off contest.

I'm looking forward to learning a lot around here!

And, by the way, do you have a favorite recipe for sweet tea? :)
