#NaNoWriMo #First50Words Contest Results!



Hey guys, it's Jerusha from Rabid Badger Editing here, and the results are in: Y'all killed it this year!

I'm so excited that you guys included me in your writing journey, especially one as difficult as #NaNoWriMo. So, THANK YOU to everyone who entered! Ok, onto the good stuff:

Our three third place winners are:

Tambra Nicole Kendall's One Hot Cowboy

“I, Elizabeth Grace Wyndham, founder and leader of The Hen Party Matchmaking Society, do solemnly swear to use all the abilities God Almighty has given me to get couples together who are too blind, and ornery to do it themselves.” Marcella Jane added, "and don’t forget too stupid."

Cath Bore's The Bad Friend

‘What time did you get in last night?’ Jamie asked. His dark hair was messy, not combed and straight like usual. Kat wanted to reach over make it right. He’d let his locks grow out. They were too long and unfamiliar. She had to check twice it was even Jamie.

Tiffany Randall's A Gay Man's Girlfriend

I was a shift supervisor for Starbucks on Fondren and Westheimer dealing with a manager who seemed to really have it out for me ever since he step foot in the store. A cornbread fed man; Jerome had his eyes on me from the start, starring me down with...

Our two second place winners are:

Holly Walrath's The Disc

“The wind feels like riding a turbine. Or falling up a mountain. Or sitting in the eye of a storm.” He looked over his shoulder to see if the bug still listened. “If you strap yourself down, it kind of feels good.” She bent into the heap of trash, nonchalant.

Tria Wood's Butcher, Baker

Texas was bigger than I thought it would be. I’d been driving for days, pursued by ghosts, everything I owned packed into the old Volvo station wagon I’d inherited from my parents. When I crossed the border just after Clovis, I was sick of fast food and convenience store bathrooms.

Aaaaand in first place:

Lenora Howard's The Dim

Her hands were sticky. They were warm, wet, sticky, and very red. Anna stared at her hands in a daze, her ears ringing. She touched her palms together, pressing the oozy warmth of each finger against the other before pulling them apart, watching the fluid string between her two hands.
