Yeah, it's my ugly mug again. Such a scary thing to see on a Monday morning, isn't it?
Anywho, last Monday (that would be the 5th for those of you who don't really want to think on a Monday), I wrote a post soliciting your favorite dinner ideas, and the response was pretty good (at least for me). Between Facebook and the blog, I received 18 entries.
After writing down everyone's dinner ideas on a psuedo Word document; inside a one by two table; in the lightest black ink I got (I am using every single last atom of toner that I can find in my cartridge); and cutting them out into half inch by three inch size strips of paper, I stuck them inside a hat.
And before you ask, no I didn't choose them---I had two family members choose them for me.
So the winners of my nifty little contest, where the prize is that I use your idea, and write you into the last scene (or not depending on your preference), and feature a link to your blog on my front page for one calendar month are:
Jane Turley and Lisa Brooks!
So my good readers, I will find a way to contact you, most likely via Facebook, to see if you're interested in being written into the ending of my book.
And for everyone else, thanks for participating and playing along. You all gave me some fantastic dinner ideas that really got my mouth to watering.
And now, a brief status update on that W.i.P. in question: I'm actually at the end of the book, as the only thing left for me to write, which coincidentally is the very last plot line I have to tidy up, was this restaurant scene which concludes the story (or does it?). I'm hoping to have this first draft done and in the can by the end of the week.
