On Winning Some …

with 28 comments

Acceptance speeches/notes are tricky, I’m coming to realize.
So I’ll let the KISS principle rescue me.

Well if you recall, I’d posted sometime back about a 55 Fiction Contest.
News, rather good news, is that I’ve won it. Yes, it feels great!

1st place And The Winner Is...

And I owe it to you for coming back to my mumbo jumbo and encouraging me with your, mostly, kind comments. Thanks a ton for the motivation you provide. Also, I’d like to acknowledge the efforts the organizers put in, considering that there were many prize-worthy entries.
In the end, I’d like to thank my Mom, Dad … Oh wait they don’t know yet what a blog is. The last I made my sis read one of my stories, she was like .. Crap! What is this?

Hence you see, it is only because of you that I write and will continue to do so. All right, I lied. It is not just because of you. I also simply enjoy doing this. So keep coming back for more!

A brief on the contest
Organized by Lena / The Colors Magazine
Sponspored by Sai Kiran Publications
Judged by Lena, Sameera

Posting the winning entry below, in case you haven’t read it:-

Colored Conceptions by Gaurav / Sangfroid

He was excited. She was nervous. Emptying the milk glass, he pounced on her.
In no time, he climaxed.
Minutes later, he dragged her by the hair, uttering profanities all the while.
The red of the vermilion in her hair parting wasn’t good enough. He’d wanted the sheets to go red.
The marriage was annulled.
