So...

I didn't win the Valerie Parv Award. Piqued at the post by Kylie Short who came first AND third and my lovely CP Melissa Smith who came second.

Congrats to both of you!!! I came fourth btw (out of six), which is the same I came in this same contest in 2007! I'm determined to climb that ladder next year :)

Also want to shout a HUGE congrats to my lovely CP Becca J Heath for coming a BRILLIANT second in the RWA Emerald (full mss) Award. Both of us are eagerly awaiting the final judges comments.

Thanks to everyone who left me good luck wishes!!

Aw, Rach, sending you big cyber hugs. This writing lark is so tough, but there's always next year!!

Congrats on the forth Rach I have no doubt you'll climb that ladder ;) Sending you cyber chocolate!

Monique Wood said...

Big hugs, Rach. You should be so proud to have placed fourth!

Btw, I met Melissa. She's a lovely lady (always smiling at the conference when I saw her).

See you in Sydney 2010 where we'll celebrate when you win the comp *wink*.

Hey, Rach, you WILL so get there. Congrats on being fourth though. That's huge. And who knows, with any luck you may be ineligible next year because you'll already have been published... :-)

Lorraine said...

I'm echoing Jackie, being fourth is still a huge achievement and even though I've only read one of your chapters I really think your days of entering contests are drawing to a close :-)

(Because you've been published that is!!!)

Becca J. Heath said...

Thanks lots on the congrats.
Fourth is great but i know you'll be even higher next year or more likely SOLD!!

Cathryn said...

Fourth is still awesome, Rach.

And don't worry about climbing that ladder. Next year you won't be able to enter cos you'll have sold. So there!

Congrats on your fourth placing Rach!

Good news for your CPs (Melissa - I was lucky enough to meet btw at the conference).

Well done on the fourth Rach, celebrate the achievement :-)

Geeish, Rach, fourth is so so good. You are on the right track. You also should be pleased. I would be. :)
