Word Weaver Writing Contest Winner!

I said I would announce the winner of the Word Weaver Writing Contest today!

Word Weaver logi FINAL trimmed
– and I will.


I’m not sure I said what time I would do it. There were so many good entries it’s been really tough to figure out which one is the absolute best overall.

Trust me, some of the stories are just brilliant.

However, since I technically have until midnight, it will be a little longer before I announce the winners.
And this weekend I will finish up the critiques for the other entries; those will go out by email over the next seven days or so. Probably less. I’m pretty far along with that.


Stay tuned!


Now, while I have you here, I want to ask for some input. 

I plan on having these writing contests a few times a year, basically quarterly, but not at Christmas or the beginning of the year because you guys are all crazy busy then and why make it worse? So only three times, but they’ll be every three months. Except for the one we don’t have at Christmas. Got it?



For the next Word Weaver Writing Contest, slated for July, what should the “theme” be?

You’ll have the whole month of July to write a few thousand words, but what about a theme???

  • No theme, free-for all? Anything goes?
  • Horror, like anything scary (even a trip to the dentist would count)
  • fun/lighthearted – something to enjoy in the middle of summer, and maybe save horror for October?

You tell me!

  1. Great idea Dan. One day I’ll offer to be a sponsor (maybe when I have a book actually published 😏 ).
    For now I’m happy to take part in the next contest, and as it’s a genre I don’t usually write, I’d love to see a horror theme. Cheers!

  2. I say HOT – because it’s summer and hot or ICE – so that we focus on the cool of the winter in the heat of the summer 😀 Or – FIRE and ICE 😀
