What excellent entries you have here. Each of them so different! I love to see how various people interpret (or come to connect with) the same image. This was a real treat.

Jim said...

Jason, I'm already seeing some new faces, both in the writers and the comments. Congrats! This promises to be an even better contest than the first two!

Livewire, stick around. We're just getting warmed up! ;-)

Hi Jason,
Seems I missed another excellent contest.
I'll try to read some of the entries as I get back into the groove.
Much fun :)

Terri said...

When's the next one?

Jude said...

Some excellent entries Jason. Will definitely come back again.

Sandra Ruttan said...

Wow Jason - an impressive list of entries, as always. Good for you! You know how to work a contest!

Bernita said...

Really superior entries, Jason.
Has Blogger caused anyone trouble besides me in posting comments?

Jim said...

OH, yes. It's been failing on a regular basis the past few days.

jason evans said...

Thanks so much for the kind words everyone!!

I credit the success of these contests to you, to the community you build. I'm humbled that you allow me to be your host.

Blogger has been a bit cantankerous these days, but luckily not enough to shut everything down. Let's hope our luck holds! Thanks for the extra effort to get those comments through. I know all the writers are grateful.

Jason, I just wanted to say I can't believe how successful the contest was. Almost 100 entries, that's awesome! You've got your work cut out for you as far as judging goes, there are so many great stories here.

jamie ford said...

Wow! 100 entries. Amazing turnout. Great opportunity for writerly fellowship in general. Sorry, I didn't have time to join in this time, but I'll be reading and appreciating from the sidelines.

Minx said...

Thank you Jason, you have your work cut out here. I think you have created a monster - good luck in sorting out all these great entries!
