Ta da daa ta da da da da daaaaa

(That's the sound of the heralds blowing their trumpets by the way.) The computer is downstairs being stripped and fixed so I'm posting for work. Apologies for formatting and if the side bar has gone nuts. But anyway, get on with the post...

Yes, why are heralds blowing their trumpets? Is that what you're asking? Well tootle over to The Clarity of Night, because the results for the Silent Grey competition are posted and I came 4th. Yes, little old me. OK, I know it's not first, or second, or even third, but hey I'm used to not winning anything, so 4th is great for me.

Shameless got an honorable mention and I'd also like to thank Minx for pointing out the competition in the first place.

Just saw your result on CoN and had to rush over to say "Congratulations!"

Well done, V - I'm so chuffed for you!

Interesting how the reader's favourite didn't make it as a finalist.

Brian said...

Congrats on your great writing and in wrestling your computer into submission.

Verilion said...

Thanks you two. I'm well chuffed, I think my colleagues are ready to kill me. That's a good point Atyllah, or maybe he did that result first and then excluded him from the main vote. What I thought was interesting was that none of the five I voted for made it anywhere!

Debi said...

It is subjective, of course, but that doesn't make it any less real or exciting! Mega congrats!

I've just asked for Shameless's autograph ... can I please have yours too?

Shameless said...

Verilion,
Yippeee. Well done! I was so excited when I saw that you were MV. 4th out of 51 - very very cool! I want your autograph as well! And thanks to Minx, yes, as she also pointed me towards Clarity of Night.

There's only up now, Verilion!

Congratulations on winning 4th Place!! An outstanding achievement in light of so many fine entries.

Can you send me your email address? The one I have keeps bouncing back my emails. I'd like to send you your prize. ;)

Thanks for the wonderful entry! Congratulations again.

Susan Abraham said...

Congratulations, Verilion.
Didn't know because of the names.
Well done!

Verilion said...

He he, me of many pseudonymns. And being asked for autographs already. Gosh this may all just go straight to my head!
Oh and Jason, I'll check my mail (I am sans computer until tomorrow) but it does usually get through, it's just being a bit silly at the mo, but I'll send you my hotmail address in a wee while.

Congratulations on being placed fourth.
I hope celebrity doesn't go to your head and take you away from posting here.

Verilion said...

Hi John and thank you. No, I don't think I'll stop posting, the only thing that would prevent that is if my computer blew up (or France Telecom mysteriously cut off my line or I went on a five week holiday). OK I think I've rather contradicted myself...

Minx said...

So well done. Great writing and well deserved. These competitions are so good to get you 'out there' and of course linking with other writers. Thought there were some great entries this time, and can't wait for the next!

Marie said...

Well done!

kf gallagher said...

That's funny because I was just reading the list of winners after reading the blog of a writer who didn't win or place. Good for you!!

Interesting writing on your blog. Nice work.

Verilion said...

Hi Marie, and KF thanks for the comment and for dropping by. I keep saying this, but I really enjoyed the competition and I'm looking forward to the next one!
