Eleven down, one to go. The second to last batch of winners is about to be announced.
Quite indulgently we asked you to write about what you loved most about Thanet Creative Writers. If I am honest, the thought “how can I ask people to blog about us” was how I ended up with “wouldn’t it be cool if we had a 12-week writing competition”. And the rest, as they say, was history.
Before we carry on, I’d like to give an honourable mention to Author Buzz. While not part of the competition there is a good post on that site all about us at Thanet Creative Writers. I know because I wrote it. Now on to the important folks – you wonderful writers.
Likewise, I’d like to shout out to L. L. Winder. Who might like to add Wedding anniversaries to the list of things that stop her writing. Congratulations guys. I wish you many more years of happiness together.
Top Three Posts.
In no particular order of sexiness, here are the three front runners for this week. Of course, that could be because there only were three entries that I found but even so…
- Thanet Love on Night of the Hats.
- The thing I love most about Thanet Creative Writers on AUTHORity
- It’s in the small print on The Joy of Words
I hope each and every one of those posts finds their way to /r/ThanetWinners2017 for the big vote off at the end of next week. (Hint, go and post them there you amazing writers)
Talking about the big vote off, if you still want to write for a theme that has passed you have one last chance to win by entering it into the big vote off. Just saying…
Winner of the best post
Here we are once again. Three great posts and I have to pick just one. Honestly, this is so hard. This section of the post has been blank for an hour now.
In the end, I had to pick one and it was the one I realised that I had liked so much that I had left a comment saying how easy it was to read.
This week’s winner, by a nose, is: It’s in the small print by Jess Joy.
Winner of the best comment
For sheer novelty value, I am going to award Benj the best comment award.
On the Night of the Hats post, his comment was not only interesting but in verse. That’s gotta count for something, right. Anyway, I liked it and so I am awarding the prize to Benj.
Winner of the most votes
As this week, the Reddit vote was a dead heat between our best post winner (Jess) and Niel, I think it is fair to award the people’s choice award to Night of the Hats, Thanet Love.
This week coming up is the last of the 12 themes. I challenge you all to write your best ever entry. Consider the gauntlet thrown down.
Over to you…
