"Writing Wish" Scholarships Announced

Thank you so much to everyone who entered the "What's Your Writing Wish? Alchemy Inspiration Scholarship Contest" by sharing a writing wish, by spreading the word through social media, or by doing both! Your passion and enthusiasm made my week so much brighter, and you reminded me once again how much I enjoy sharing what I've learned about writing with other writers and wish-to-be-writers. I loved reading all of your writing wishes, dreams, and goals.

--->>>I have emailed everyone who entered the contest a special thank-you surprise. (It's a good one!) That message should already be in your inbox if I have your email address, so please look for it now! If you don't see it, I don't have your email address (or the email went into your spam folder). Please check the list at the end of this post to see if I need your contact info.

Congraultions to the recipients of the five scholarship spots!

  • Karen Walcott, whose writing wish is "to discover why it's so hard for me to get writing. I want to be a writer. I have gone to school to be a writer. Writing full time is my dream. So why is it so hard for me to sit and write? So my writing wish is simply to get writing."
  • Robin, who wishes "to be able to weave my stories and thoughts into a beautiful web."
  • Paula, who described her writing wish this way: "I want my words to sing and dance across the page, to tell my story, and to create a need in people to nod their heads and say, 'Oh. Yes. I know exactly what she means.'"
  • Christine Marie, who wrote: "My wish is to get some of these incredible stories out of my head...and make room for more!"
  • Nitaa Inaabandam who entered on Facebook.

I need email addresses for the following entrants:

  • Beth H. (who left comment #3 on the entry post)
