A Blitzing Christmas finalized


Blog Posted:1/31/2018 10:07:00 PM

Dear Blitzers,

Thank you all for your entries. I enjoyed reading and listening to them. Congratulations to the winners and could the top 4 please inbox me your addresses or the best way to send you your prize.

Number one I found especially poignant and I read it like a personal blitzing of Santa from a disillusioned child who still hopes despite previous disappointments. The reading was also faster paced than most of the others (though I expected blitz to be read far more rapidly than all the entries I got.)The fastest read was my number two winner and I was impressed by the accompaying music too!!!! awesomeness!!! Number three I thought was fun and I esp. liked the Carribean tones as I have had many green Christmases in the tropics - yeah, no snow except on the Christmas cards :). Number four was supposed to go to the best blitz write without audio but I did not really find one that satisfied the short, rapid lines of the form except as Janice wrote it - audio while very well read, was slow-paced. Anyway, these are why I chose these specific top 4 winners for the prizes. 

Thank you again for participating. 

Taai :)

Thanks Taai. It was a new frontier, audio turned out to be so much fun. I never thought of music. I was blessed with the help of fellow souper Frederick Parker to get it on tape. I thank him from my heart and thank you for giving a prize to fourth place. Great contest.
