CONTEST IS CLOSED
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I had a great time hosting the contest. Thanking everyone for their spirited participation. It was indeed a nice experience reading so many different versions to the start of a storyline.
I hope, each of you had a memorable time participating and writing your own beautiful ends! I believe it was the first time for many of you and you enjoyed the whole event. I felt overwhelmed when many of you wrote to me saying you enjoyed, just the aspect of writing into a contest - that was the intention behind this idea; to provide an opportunity to write & meet new bloggers and cherish the experience.
I am sure we have already learnt a few new things in this exercise. I truly believe, Learning is the reward of Participation.
I know, you have been reading this to know when the results would be out and am beating with my words!
The judging process is going to be another rewarding experience; with so many entries and each so unique, i have a task on hand.
Results would be announced on 6th February 2012.
The list of entries are:
3. Hariharan Valady
8. Vijay Shenoy
9. Sancheeta Biswas
Thank you once again! In the meanwhile, Please read the stories written by other contestants and share your views.
I am announcing a contest for bloggers to participate and enjoy! The main reason behind the contest is to build camaraderie, instigate a spark and learn through contesting.
I feel every time i am in a contest i learn from it and become a better person, be it a Toastmasters contest or Blogger contest! Hence, decided to be the host :-)
Here you go! I have written the beginning of a story and i would want the contestants to complete it! Sounds simple, isn't it?
