Resulting in the Truth...

Well folks the waiting is over. The results are in for Cherie Reisch’s 2nd Annual Flash Fiction Contest. Congratulations to the winners:

        1st Place –  Scribbles from Jenn
        2ND Place – Medeia Sharif
        3rd Place –  Geek Banter

Cherie took down the Linky List, so you will have to go directly to the respective blogs to read the winning entries.

I had pretty much given up on the voting around noon on Saturday and being resolved to a solid fourth place, stopped checking back. This morning I was surprised to see that I had actually tied for third place but in a karmic –handwriting on the wall – kind of way, randon.org (the means Cherie used to break a tie) chose the other writer and their story.

It was an interesting exercise for me. One in which I actually learned a lot about myself and my writing. Funny, how some of these little things, can produce such big results. I want to thank Cherie and tell her how important this opportunity has been.

I also want to thank everyone for the kind comments and your votes. I'm truly not as SHAMELESS as stated in my last post. More like completely self-conscious. Nothing like a little self-deprecating humor to hide your insecurities.


  1. Congratulations!! I love it when something small has huge results. Awesome. :-)

  2. I would still consider coming in 3rd/4th out of 70+ entries still very respectable! You should look at this as a WIN! :)

  3. Hey, just between you and me (and anyone else who might happen to read this) -- out of the entries Cherie selected, I liked yours the best and voted for it.

  4. NITRO ~
    I really enjoyed your Flash Fiction and it got my vote, as you know.

    Hey, one mo' thang...

    I got the Emails you sent and saw the comment you submitted. I am composing an Email right now which I should be sending in no more than an hour. Hopefully your computer will be able to receive it because it explains a number of things you have been wondering about but which I was previously unable to divulge.

    Ahhh, the plot thickens (as the saying goes). Ha!

    Yak Soon...

  5. I think you did great! I would be proud to tie for 3rd.

  6. Your flash fiction piece was wonderful! I'm sorry it came down to the randomness of Random.org, but I had to stick by my own rules.

    I would like to offer a 10-page critique to you, though, for your third-place tie.

  7. Congrats on placing, even if you didn't officially get the prize. Your piece was wonderful and you should be very proud of yourself! ;D

  8. Congrats on the tie--and for the courage to submit your work.

  9. I really enjoyed your entry. I think you did a great job!

  10. I above everyone else here.....

    appreciates seeing your insecurities!!!

    Not what you expected me to say, huh?

    Not in an evil, glad you didn't win way, just always a good reminder to know you are human...not super women, or the easter bunny. Course, you are still the easter bunny..but that is another story all in all.
