Winners of Than-Bauk Contest posted

Blog Posted:8/11/2011 6:41:00 PM

I have posted the results of my Than-Bauk contest. Alongwith the rhyme and the syllable counts I have taken into consideration the witty write. There were three very good entries but with rhyme and syllable errors.

My congratulations to all the winners for their support.

My next contest is to be Triplet which is not on the PS list.

Thank you all, again

    Big congrats to all the winners, especially Andrew Crisci, an amazingly talented writer and dear friend. I appreciate my placement, Dr. Ram. Hope you'll enter my new contest. I can't even post a blog about it. Technical difficulties again. As I said in my than-bauk, "Who's in charge?" These hackers are driving people berserk! Like Joyce, I keep getting thrown off the site when I try to comment. Links don't often work. Come on, admin, let's fix all this so we can enjoy the Soup again! Love, Carolyn

    Dr. Ram, finally I can come and see your blog. I could not do it earlier. thanks for the win. That was a very hard form for me. It looks easy, but it's quite difficult to make it witty in such short lines. Thanks for introducing new forms. Best of luck with the triplets contest. You are sure to get many entries quickly! OH, and congrats to everyone in the Than-Bauk contest.
