    1. Did I like what? I’m not sure who is commenting and what I am supposed to be looking at. A story? I did not receive a story from Anonymous, so I have no idea who you are or if I got your entry. LOL


  1. Hello, I am Gabriella, and just wondering if you got my form. I think I sent it twice… Bc I had to go back and change the email. (Since it was my sister’s instead) Just making sure. ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Hi, can you check if you got an entry from Kayleigh, please? I just sent it in and wanted to check to make sure it got through. : )


  3. Hi, did you get an entry for Anna submitted just now? It seems like a lot of people’s entries are not getting through, so I just wanted to make sure you got mine. Thanks!

  4. Is there a specific time the stories have to be submitted by? I’m a late entry, so I’m scrambling to get my story finished in time!


  5. I just sent my story in. Just so you know, I wanted the last line to be in italics, but when I copied and pasted, it didn’t keep the italics.

  6. I used the one where she looks out her window and can not believe what she sees. Should I redo it and make it clearer?


  7. I didn’t get an email verifying that I submitted my story the first time I submitted it, so I just resubmitted it. If I don’t get an email verifying that you got it, can I still send it to And it still be inside the deadline?


  8. Should I copy and paste the prompt “Andi looked out the window and couldnโ€™t believe what she saw!” into my story? Is that what you mean? Sorry so many questions!


  9. So I should copy and paste the actual prompt into my story you mean? Sorry so many questions!


    1. I read your story and it’s good, but I’m confused. You say the prompt is looking out the window and she couldn’t believe what she saw, but unless I’m reading the wrong story, I don’t see that coming into the story at all.


  10. This is the line where I reveal what prompt I’m using “Musing, Andi looked out the window and couldnโ€™t believe what she saw!”


    1. Resubmit cuz everybody else’s is coming through fine. I have lots of entries. It it doesn’t work I can just add that line to your original.


    1. It says it right at the top of this page:
      Follow the steps to enter. Contest runs February 14-March 1, 2022.

      What makes you think you can still enter now? Just curious. ๐Ÿ™‚


      1. Ok…. I wasn’t sure. It shows me that I can still enter and everything. I don’t know why though. When will you be announcing the winners? ๐Ÿ™‚


  11. Im not going to say what everyone else has already said, but I do want to comment on your understanding of the topic. Youre truly well-informed.
