Writer’s Digest 2010 short story winner

In April WD announced the winners of the 2010 short story contest. The #1 short story was Throwing Stones by Wendi Christner.

I read it and just had to put it on my blog. It’s lyrical, moving and…well, you’ll have to read it yourself.

    Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I tried the link and either it’s been removed or I can’t get to it. I actually entered this contest, in the YA category short story category for Pink Shoelaces. I placed in the contest, quite an honor considering the quality of work. The magazine should be out this month, with the winners stories in every category, and mention all who placed. I can’t wait to read this story!

    If you want to read my short story entry Pink Shoelaces you can read it on my blog. http://romancingthewriter.blogspot.com/2010_05_01_archive.html

    I would appreciate any constructive criticism.

    I really encourage everyone to read some of this authors other works! She has a God given talent to write, and she works so very hard at it too. Some of her works have put her on a short list of people, that have actually changed how I look at things in my life. May she continue to use her talent to give back to her readers.

    Wow! What a story!

    Thank you so much for posting the link to “Throwing Stones” on your blog! Sometimes Google Alerts holds the nicest surprises. I’m thrilled you enjoyed the story. It means more to me than I can express to have something I created evoke your emotions.

    All my best,

      I’m honored that you stopped by. Your writing captivated me right from the start of the story and I loved the twist at the end…it’s no surprise you won the award! I’m glad I had the chance to read it.
