  7. Congratulations to all the winners! Much luck with your writing.

    Thank you, Authoress, for a wonderful contest. I appreciate this positive venue for sharing my work and learning so much from fellow entrants.

    I appreciate all of the entrants who offered up advice for my opening. I plan to make the necessary adjustments to sharpen the intensity and harness its flow. Your insights were honest, helpful, and positive, and I'm grateful to all of you.

    Sincere thanks to the secret agent who reviewed this scene. In addition to all of the other reviewers, I respect your thoughtful opinion, and your advice will not go unheeded.

    Now, it's on to better writing for me! I look forward to the next contest, and of course the next post by uber-Authoress :)

  8. Much thanks to Authoress for your dedication and for this opportunity to 'showcase' our work.

    Thanks also to this month's Secret Agent, Paige Wheeler. I enjoyed reading your comments. All were positive and helpful in some way.

    Finally, thank you to the entrants and commenters. We all need a little pat on the back to keep our chin up, and a kick in the pants to help make our words better.

    Until the next contest... :)
