Dan Alatorre’s Word Weaver Writing Contest: FIRST PLACE “Making Copies” by Ellie Presner

Well, well! It seems I won First Prize in a writing contest! My short story beat out 200+ contestants. Go figure! I was shocked, truly! (I wrote it *many* years ago but it was never published. Don’t ask me why I dredged it up now, but I’m sure glad I did!) I won some really cool stuff thanks to the contest host, author Dan Alatorre – another fab WordPress blogger. And a huge THANK YOU to Dan for all his efforts – he had to wade through all those stories! LOL. Here’s his site, with my story posted there.

 Making Photocopies by Ellie Presner

There was a lot to like in this story. I wanted emotion, and I wanted a character I could connect with, sympathize with, root for.

In Ellie’s story, I got that and so much more.

The Main Character, as you will see, puts herself forefront into a situation easily avoided, and we are with her every painful step of the way as she deals with lost love and maybe a broken heart that appears to have never mended.

It was a beautifully written piece and well-deserving of first prize, and it was my honor to read it and share it with you.

This story, for whatever reason, spoke to me. I loved it from the opening lines and stayed with it all the way though.

I hope you enjoy it.

For winning 1st…
