…well, maybe I don’t swear, but I’ll try to make the announcements as exciting as possible.
I Won a Competition!
I’m not one who’s known for winning things frequently (at least, not when you look at how many contests I enter). I won a riddle competition a few years ago, and about a year ago I won a book from a Book Riot giveaway (they have the best giveaways, right up there with Goodreads‘s). But that’s about it.
Until this week.
On February 20, Words Can’t Fathom announced the Blogoquent Competition. Here was the challenge:
How well can you describe LIFE? Can you describe it in just one sentence?
Life is a journey in which nothing is permanent and everything is precious.
And I found out on Thursday that I got first place with eighteen votes. Woohoo!
Here’s my badge of honor:
Check out the other winners and their entries here.

My other announcement is that Calliope Writing & Editing gift certificates are now for sale over at A Writer’s Path. I have two gift certificates up for grabs:
- $35 off a 50,000-word proofread valued at $350 being sold for half price

Those are my announcements for the week. What’s going on in your world?
