Happy Thursday, all. I'm enjoying the sunrise from my new office window (work from home so new house = new office) and waiting to hear from the finalists.... hopefully I should say winners....

Remember it's still early Joni-time...

Has she ever forgotten to notify non-winning finalists? I'm not paranoid or anything... No, not at all.

As a three-time non-winning finalist I think the chance of her forgetting is... slim.

Congrats you guys! I am thrilled that two of us got 1st and 2nd! wotf010 wotf010 wotf010

I also didn't win. Like Rebecca, I'm letting them hold mine to see if it wins published finalist. It's been a crazy six months of waiting, what's six more?
