Contests - How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count The Ways . . .

Today I entered the Query Tracker Agent Judged Contest and I must say, I really had a blast!

The contest opened at 12:00 p.m. and I was ready at my computer, at work (technically, I was on lunch, in case my boss is reading this!), refreshing, refreshing; waiting for the registration form to appear. Like an apparition, it did appear and, with trembling hands, I filled it out and pasted my log line and first paragraph into the form, then I pushed the button and, like a magic, the form disappeared into the IT netherworld.

I must take this opportunity to apologize to one of my co-workers, Jen. At one minute to 12:00, Jen approached my desk and proceeded to ask me for something (I really don't remember what she asked for). I replied, "Jen, could you come back in five minutes, please?" She glanced at my screen, smiled knowingly and said, "Oh, sure, no problem." What a good sport she is!

Anyway, it was fun while it lasted and I am looking forward to doing it again.

Thanks Elana and the Query Tracker team!

Hi Cynthia. I saw your comment at the QT blog about the contest and thought I would pay your blog a visit. I love all your graphics.
