I am happy to announce, that after a month of reading brilliant entries, umming and arring, much discussion, more reading, more discussion, plenty of thinking, lots of headaches, sleepless nights, (ok, maybe not that far) etc. my dear friend Bek and I are pleased to announce the winners of the writing competition for "The Mystery"!
*Drumroll, if you please...*

Congratulations, Katie! Bek and I loved your story. We loved how well you captured the music, and wove such a seamless and beautiful story out of it, that was entirely complete in itself, leaving no loose ends. It was so beautiful and moving, and was a joy to read. Well done!

"A Different Kind of Snake"
Bravo, Jonathan! Bek and I found your story fascinating; the intrigue and suspense made us want to know more. The writing was gripping, and we felt immediately thrust into the world of the characters from the beginning. It was an exciting read, great work!

Congrats, Ashley! Bek and I loved how well you captured the "mystery" of the song in your story. You brought an interesting story to life and it reflected the music's mystery in its ending. It flowed well and was a pleasure to read. Good job!
I'd like to say a very big thankyou to everyone who entered the competition. Your stories were fantastic, and you seriously gave Bek and I a very, very hard time choosing the winners. Thankyou so much for sharing your talents with us! Your stories were a joy to read.
If the winners could email me their mailing addresses to bushmaidATgmailDOTcom I will be able to ship your prizes to you as soon as I get to the post office. =)
