I got my letter today from the writing contest. I didn't win. Ah, well.
There was some interest in what I actually ended up writing, not only for the impromptu but what I chose as my "best work", so I've decided to post my entries here! Judge for yourself how I did. I feel good about it, so I think I fulfilled all that was asked of me.
Thank you all again for your help! It means so much!
