WOO-HOO! I'm a Great Hooker!

Okay, so the subject of this blog is a little misleading. I'm not really a hooker. I'm not even posting about hookers. At least, not the kind YOU'RE thinking of. I AM, however, posting about HOOKS, as in, opening hooks of novels and short stories.

Last week, Tracy Ruckman ran another contest on her Pix-N-Pens website (Tracy is the contest queen!). This time, we had to enter our opening hook - the first paragraph or two we've written for a story or novel. I entered two and I found out this morning that one of my entries tied for first place!

THAT'S what I mean by a great hooker (see? there is more than one definition).

The contest judge was author, Janice Thompson. I won a copy of her latest novel, "The Wedding Caper." I'm really looking forward to reading it.

Aren't contests fun? At least, when you win, anyway.

Oh...and congrats to my fellow FaithWriter friend, Debbie Roome, who tied for best hooker. :-)

Check out our winning entries by visiting Pix-N-Pens.
