 Congratulations to   Stacy Danielle Stephens  
(aka msstacy13)
the winner of this year's
Meager Puddle of Limelight Award for Best Opening Line


Here are the final results:
1st place: Stacy Daniel Stephens (aka msstacy13 )
We had all been born Polish, but some of us were more Polish than others.

2nd place: Beth Cato (aka celestialgldfsh)
Three sure signs that my evening would not go as planned: a big black plume of smoke, six lanes of gridlocked interstate, and a complete lack of sirens.

3rd place: Beth Cato (aka celestialgldfsh)
The fog harvesters rolled out in the darkest of night, while birds slumbered and the rest of the world held its breath.

4th place: Renata Piper (aka lyonesse )
I measure damage by the milligram.

5th place: Misha (aka misha_mcg)
The blood coursed through 14 other bodies before reaching the child in Rilad.

6th place: Nell Greene (aka nell_greene)
My first word was, "Mortal."

I want to say a big 'Thank you' to everyone who entered and/or voted in the competition.   

Next up: In February, the doors open to entries for 2011 Meager Puddle of Limelight Award for Best Short Story Title.

In the meantime, for anyone who's ever entered or voted in a Puddle competition, here's an icon for your collection:

Just goes to show it's worth it to "polish" that opening line. -)

Whee! Thanks, Jon. Does this mean you get to interview me twice?

Now I need to get off my duff and finish that fog harvesters story.
