Rachael Harrie’s Write Campaign wrapped up on October 31st, and I have to say, I did get a lot out of it. Not only did I meet some really interesting people – all writers and all serious about attempting to build their platforms, but I have more of an idea of what kind of tone I want to use on my own blog! I was going to consider the whole thing a huge success – I met people, I learned a lot, I participated in two out of the three challenges (would have done all three, but the second challenge came just as I had my deadline for the second book in my Star Harbor series, so I was unable to participate) – and count the Write Campaign over.
But then, something happened. I was informed by Ms. Harrie herself that I had placed third in the final Write Campaign challenge and had actually won some prizes. Well, color me shocked! I’m very proud of this, especially since there were well over 100 entries.
You can read my winning entry, entitled, “The Job,” here.
My little brother, who got married this past weekend, pronounced the entry “professional.” I laughed and told him I’d written it in five minutes. That’s flash fiction for you.
At any rate, I enjoyed the Write Campaign tremendously, and hope to be able to do it again in the future.
