  1. Great job, Karen, and great essay!

  2. Just attended the event honoring the finalists. Met quite a few very nice writers and supporters of writers. I read mine and had to run, disappointed about that. But thank you for all who were involved in putting it together (esp dawn and Lori) and for the church that hosted it. And congratulations ahead of time for the three top winners! Funny all I'm sure. Karen
