Well, somehow when I went in to thank KatieComeBack for suggesting Word Weaver for the name of my writing contest, I DELETED THE WHOLE POST.


Also, some nice anonymous person suggested this as a image.

word weaver anon

Isn’t that nice? I’d thank them but I don’t know who it was, and if I go edit this later I might delete it, too. So they’ll remain in anonymity fore a while.

It’s gonna be that kind of day. Better do a backup before I continue editing.

This was my original image idea, done quickly:

word weaver 1

And here’s what I did yesterday

word weaver 2

Not sure about that last one. We’re getting there, though. Do you like any of them???

Anyway, you’re all caught up now.

  1. I like them all, but I think your original would be my preference. Also, if you decide on the last one (I do like the black background), PLEASE change to rose to white – I’m a Yorkist and couldn’t have anything to do with red roses,I’m afraid!! 😉

    1. I think that last one is more smoky and the bandit than writing contest but I will let the fans decide. Plus, everyone should still feel free to submit their own ideas!

  2. I’m a fan of the first. I like the vines in general, but they seem a little odd with the word Weaver in the title. You could have done something with a braided cord, a loom, a spool of thread, or even an orb-weaver spider (you know one of those monstrous large bodied spiders. Hmm, scratch that last suggestion. The vines would still work, but it might be nice if you could make them appear to weave in and out of the letters. I think there are some free fonts out there that could do just that. Sorry – just my random thoughts.

    1. I agree with Allie P. You need a hemp rope, or a wicker font, or a basket….

      For a tag line…hmm

      Plaint prose and parable into phrase and parlance

      (I like me some alliteration….)

      Spin a story; fashion a fable; mesh a mystery; twine a tale; knit a novel.

  3. I do like the third one, but I think they are all fine. I have deleted so many things on WordPress that I now write my posts on Word first, especially if it is something I want to make sure is perfect.

  4. I like the black background because the words “writing contest” are the most eye catching. The rose doesn’t bother me but I’ll go with the consensus to delete it.

    1. Well then I have a surprise for you. I have been taking all the suggestions and working on one encompasses everything that everybody has told me. It should be ready pretty soon so stay tuned!
