Okay, so it's not a competition for the winner of the 2015 October Platform Challenge. It's a completely random drawing, but I've got to call the person something, right?

So winner it is.

2015 October Platform Challenge Winner

The winner for the 2015 October Platform Challenge is DMGbyrnes! At least, that's the username on the Writer's Digest site.

Great books!

Great books!

I will contact DMG separately, but this writer wins:

It's a super cool prize, but I hope everyone got something out of this challenge, whether it's gaining a new insight, making a new connection, or just getting motivated to do things that had been on your "to-do" list already. I know I had fun.

A Few Final Things...

I just wanted to share a couple ways I know folks are staying connected online post-challenge, in case you weren't aware.

  1. First, there's a "Platform Challenged" Facebook group. It's a closed group for people who participated in the challenge that is run by people who participated in the challenge. Click here to check it out and join.
  2. Second, folks are still using the #platchal hashtag on Twitter. So if you're on Twitter and want to keep in touch with fellow participants, that's a good way to connect on that platform.

Finally, Majida Rashid (an October participant) interviewed me for her blog. She asked questions about my writing and career. Click here to read.
