I can shout it from the roof tops that I have finished reading my Laurie contest entries. I can also say that I enjoyed each and everyone of them. I did not feel that any of the entrants were fledglings as writers. Their stories were thought out and well written. Were any of them perfect? One as opposed to the others. Did any of them need work? Yes, but most could be perfected with a little polish. I wish each and everyone of these authors luck with the contest. Afterall I am only one opinion in the judging.
