Sarah, that's terrific news! Wow! And a great poem to carry around in my head today. I scrolled down to read the poem BEFORE the commentary, which is how it should be, I think.

Congratulations from a late participant in the book quiz...

Micky said...

Bob Hoeppner said...

Yes, Sarah, I think I remember having seen your poem before. It deserves the good attention it got (and did not deserve the obtuseness over the convex glass.)

SarahJane said...

Thanks folks.
Unfortunately Blogger seems to have decided it isn't a day for to "create new post"s, so I can't update my quizzes today. Whatever.

Thanks for the congrats on my poem. In fact the part Judge Judy mentioned about being a little off - the convex glass - had been revised months ago. That's the thing with IBPC --> most of the entries are fresh-baked poems.

Anyways, merci!

Congrats. You deserved first, I think.

Hooray, SARAH!!!!
A well deserved honor.

Dear Sarah,

So glad to hear of your success.

You make me proud.

I never even got an honorable mention in the IBPC despite several nominations.

I always do badly in contests, it seems, Desert Moon and Writer's Digest being the only exceptions.

Let me know if ou want to trade links.

CE, nice to see you. Love your picture. I'd be happy to link.
