And The Winner Is....

With only one "Home Alone" story, the judges still had to submit their votes and comments.  The results was pretty much straight forward and split down the middle.  Two comments concerning Dobby were polar opposites.  So, the winner is...

The award for Humorous & Ingenious goes to:

Fuddle Fog & Fungus Bumps by GHL

The winning story is now prominently listed in our Featured Stories section.  The 2015-2 Challenge will start April 1st.  Remember all those people in the those ugly frames

I would like to thank the judges that sent in their votes.  You know who you are: AM, BA, JG, JG, TM, & ZA.  Your time to help out is quite valuable. The Challenge would not exist if nobody judged them.

Hmm... Feels a little lonely standing up here on this virtual podium. Oh well...

I would like to convey my gratitude to Sir Ollivander for his tireless efforts in organizing these challenges, and I would also echo his appreciation of the judges, many of whom invest a lot of precious time in reading challenge stories with diligence and care, evaluating them with objectivity.

In that frame of mind, I would like to make a special plug for these challenges. For all those writers who are writing not just for fun but to refine your skill, these challenges can provide very positive growth experiences. They subject your story to valuable and thoughtful scrutiny by people who care about fostering writers, and who have lots of practice in attentively examining a diverse range of types and tones of stories. Furthermore, writing for challenges stretches the mind, and takes one outside of the old comfort zone; it may take time away from our primary projects, but I personally find it always helps me to return to the main story with fresh ideas, and sometimes perhaps even a better feel for how to write for a broader, more diverse audience.

Well, the challenge sure gave us one good story this time. I'm still laughing!

Although only one story has been posted for this challenge, this one was hard to top. Congrats GHL!

GHL came out of the woodwork on 2015.03.04 - 06:59AM to say:

Thank you Martin and Lys! I was thrilled with all of the readers such as yourselves who took the time to read and review -- that truly made it most worthwhile!

Even if it wasn't the only story, it still probably would have won. I really liked it.

GHL came out of the woodwork on 2015.03.08 - 11:00AM to say:

Thank you Chris -- I greatly appreciate the feedback and kind support!

Congrats on the story. I enjoyed it immensely.

GHL came out of the woodwork on 2015.03.14 - 11:34AM to say:

Thanks Andrew -- satisfied readers are the greatest reward. Which reminds me that I've been meaning to re-read 'Don't Cry' and 'Family Way', both of which I too enjoyed immensely!
