The good news: I was voted in as first place in fiction for still_grrr
's prompt #066! *burns more calories with a Snoopy Dance*
That's three in a row, which makes me very happy. Here are all the winners:http://community.livejournal.com/still_grrr/509583.html#cutid1
Well, I don't know quite how to put this, and I don't want it to come out the wrong way, but it makes me feel almost -- guilty. I mean, there are all these great writers, and for three weeks in a row I've been able to grab the ring, as it were. Granted, I didn't cheat, but at the same time I have been writing fiction, and studying how to write it, for many years. Does all my work trying to get published give me an unfair advantage over talented fan writers who might just be having fun? I mean, these are some great stories, and if some other author is going by natural talent and doesn't have a lot of training or experience, then comparing apples to apples they're better than me!
I'm just sayin'. I decided I really wanted to meet all the prompts over at still_grrr
this month, but I kind of hope I don't win any more of them, because there are lots of other deserving writers. Did all of that come out making sense without making me sound like an idiot?
