Haha, I love your sense of humor! Mind you, I applaud your accomplishment! I remember being in second place for a week or two in the novel category. And then, everyone else checked in, lol! Still, there were a few moments of glory. You'll always be number one to me.

Take care my friend,
Rhonda

    You know, the highest I finished was second in short stories a few years ago. The top writer later admitted on her website that she bought the top spot by continually using her own money to promote the work. She posted over 300 pieces as well compared to my 87 posts. I felt robbed.

    I know the rankings are a game to most but I was gutted as I've never spent my own money to promote work and work hard to achieve anything. lol

    Oh wow, that?s not right! You are clearly a very skilled author who gives honest and helpful reviews. Fingers crossed for you to stay on top!
    I did finish 5th that one year I had two novels going. I was very ambitious back then, haha.

    Just saw the last part of what you wrote. It?s good to see someone achieve ranking on his own. You?re write, it should be by merit not money. I don?t have enough to waste, that?s for sure.

    Nah, I did this at the start for a laugh so I could write this piece. I've some stories saved up from the last couple of years which I haven't posted so we'll se how it goes. My work keeps me busy at the minute. G

Well, congratulations! Eight years is a long time to strive for something and I'd say you've paid your dues! You made me laugh too, which is something I needed on this cold, dreary day. Kudos to you!

Congratulations! I don't know why I haven't seen any of your work until this past week. I will be going back to read your winning story, and add you to my list of people I want to follow, so I won't miss any more.

I could feel your tongue in your cheek on this one, and it exposes a lot of the motivation behind the community here; this compulsion to be no. 1, to get to the top, to look down on the crowd. It was full of your personality, and I liked the last line. It's as if this is all that mattered. Of course we know differently. estory
