MyGR6 Final 6

October 19, 2011

I could feel it in my bones this morning. I figured the announcement would be made early on. As I got ready for work, there were no texts, no emails, no Facebook messages, no congratulatory Tweets. Just before I left for work, I realized my BlackBerry didn’t show any new gmails, but my Droid did. For an instant I had a glimmer of hope. So I let it linger, waiting 20 minutes until I reached my cubicle before restarting my phone. Still, nothing. I finally went to, silently hoping the winners hadn’t yet been announced. But they were, and I didn’t see my name in the top six spots. Bummer!

The excitement of the contest, however, was quite fun for a few weeks. To tell you the truth, I didn’t care much about th $10,000 in prizes. I started this blog and was hoping that it’d be a way to further expose my writing. After all, my life goal is to write a novel. Winner or not, my six words provided me a perfect blog title. So thanks, Grand Rapids Press and Amway for putting on the contest. Congratulations to the winners!
