Summer Short & Sweet Contest Finalists!

In addition to the 12x12 in 2012 and the GUTGAA challenge this year, I signed up for Susanna Hill's Summer Short & Sweet Series.  To end the summer series in style, Susanna hosted a fabulous summer contest.  

CONTEST RULES:  The contest is for a children's story of 250 words or less based on the picture and in which somebody somewhere in your story says, in dialogue, "Did/do you see that?" (you may substitute any of the other senses - "Did/do you hear/feel/taste/smell that?") and somebody somewhere in your story says, "Goodbye!" (you are allowed to substitute "Farewell!", "Au revoir!", "Sayonara!", "Ciao!", or "So long!") 

I sent in my entry at the last minute.  We were supposed to post it to our blog, if we had one.  Obviously, I didn't.  To tell you the truth, I was a little shy about it (actually, embarrassed).  It was difficult to write a story with a beginning, middle, and end in just 250 words.  There were so many great talent competing in the contest.  But to my surprise, my story- THE DRAGON PRINCE, made it to the top 6!  

I guess my story had some merit.  So, now I am sharing it, along with the other wonderful finalists.  A few of my friends made it to the finals too.  Click on the link below and vote for your favorite!
