Fictitious Person Contest - Blind As A Bat!

Blog Posted:3/1/2010 11:49:00 PM
very clever...blind as a bat...its never been used before. Just wanna remind everyone not to write their actual names at the bottom of their poetry for the contest. I don't care if you're Edgar Allen Frost...I ain't takin it!

It's a shame when contest entrants put names on their poems when we are trying to judge blindly, Matt. I've read some great poems for your contest so you have your work cut out for you. Very creative idea for a challenge. Good luck to all the contestants. Best Wishes, Carolyn

I like totally agree with you Matt, the judging is best when blind ... and I find it fun at the end, to see who wrote the poems that win.. I find most are getting used to not many put their names, but some are just not reading the contest specifications.. blind as a bat.. funny..... Constance

I never put my name on my poetry when entering any of the contests Matt... I use a pen name in the publication of my books anyway so.."its all good"... and good luck in judging your contest entries ...luv.. Linda-Marie ... "Sweetheart" of P.S.

Blind as a bat is a cool phrase for a name! I double checked to make sure my name isn't at the bottom of the poem. It isn't. Oops, I have one more place to double check. Off I go to do that now! Thanks for sponsoring contests. They help us improve our writing...and imaginations! Big smiles, Dane Ann
