The Micro-Autobiography Writing Challenge: Winners!


20100216writingchallengeblog It's time to announce the winners of the bi-weekly writing challenge. If you're new to the challenges (or to WEbook) these are short writing exercises geared towards helping authors improve a specific aspect of their craft while promoting healthy discourse between contestants.

We received 190 submissions to The Micro-Autobiography Challenge. Thanks for all of the great glimpses into your lives—it was interesting to get such an in-depth (albeit concise) look into the WEbook community. 

The winners:

Bumps, Bruises, Scars and Smiles by Silverwolf21
A Look Inside by WordsAndMusic
Not done yet by Matineeidol

Honorable Mention:

No Miracle Comes in Two's by Klemenkie8

Congratulations to all of the winners, you will receive a coupon code in your inbox soon!

The next writing challenge is only open for a few more days, so hop over to The Non-Dialogue Challenge, if you haven't already. We still need another 75 submissions to double the number of winners. This one is trickier than some of the most recent challenges, so bring your figurative writing work gloves.

If you need some inspiration for you entry, check out the past winners of the Travel Scene and The Cheating writing challenges.  

And before you do ANYTHING else, be sure to read Silverwolf21's winning micro-autobiography:

Bumps, Bruises, Scars and Smiles

Memphis, DeFuniak Springs, Vancouver, and Albany. A chicken bone stuck in my throat. Hyper-extending my knee Christmas morning. Crying harder than my brother when I gave him his first stitch.  Croaking like a frog while singing Mariah Carey's 'Hero.' Redding, Anderson, Quincy, Modesto, Redwood City and Wichita Falls. Shoving my front tooth through my bottom lip. Singing my younger sister to sleep 2 nights before her heart surgery. Dugway. A book, music, and Dr. Pepper.
