PART OF THE WINNER's CIRCLE

THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH FOR YOUR 'LIKE'S AND YOUR PRECIOUS AND DEEP COMMENTS.  YOU, MY FRIENDS, MADE ME WIN THE CONTEST !!! 

  Winner’s Circle

  The winning story from the May 27 contest is “Was I Looking for Adventure?” by Iolanda Scripca. She has won a cash prize of $50 and is eligible for entry into a quarterly contest for a $100 cash prize. Congratulations!

  Here’s the most persuasive favorable ...opinion for “Adventure” by a visitor from the Closing Argument page:

  In choosing the best story, I look for one that is different. The bold, solo road trip by a
  middle-aged woman was inspiring. At the same time, the story included similar themes as the other stories. The other stories included themes of a budget vacation, amazement with birds and nature, a beloved pet, and a motivational get-up-and-do-it mantra. Iolanda’s story is a vacation in which the writer fed birds and enjoyed nature while imaging her beloved dog is in the passenger seat. The writer shows (as opposed to tells) this motivational I-got-up-and-did-it story with memorable descriptions.
