Thanks to everyone who participated in the Cliches Contest and contributed their cliche examples. We had a record number of comments on this blog (WOW!). The overwhelming support on Twitter really left me humbled that so many of you enjoyed the post. As a special thanks, instead of giving away just one copy of the “25 Agents Who Want Your Work” issue of Writer’s Digest (as promised), I pulled some strings so I could give away five to five random participants! Here are the winners:
Darden North (commenter)
Monique Berry (from Twitter)
Greg Dominguez (from Twitter)
Once again, I appreciate the participation (and all the fun cliches). And thanks for visiting my blog. Check back in often as I promise to hold more contests with giveaways and prizes, as well as provide as much practical advice and thoughtful tips for writers as I can.
Don’t forget to download your copy of the October issue of Writer’s Digest, which features:
- 25 AGENTS who are looking for new clients (possibly you!)
- How to query an agent
- Techniques for building suspense
- The WD Interview with Patricia Cornwell
- And more!
