And the Winner Is . . .
July 1!!! Ring the bell to call folks in from the fields and stand by for an announcement of the winner -- the lucky one who gets to name a character in my work in process -- Miss Birdie's book The Day of Small Things!
First, maybe a cup of coffee to warm up my hands and loosen up my fingers -- it was marvelously cool last night and this morning. "Sleeping under blankets" as Florida vacationers used to write home in smug postcards to sweaty friends left behind, back in the pre-air conditioning days.
In a carefully and scientifically controlled environment, I reach into the bag, amazingly full of folded post-its. The contents have been thoroughly and blindly mixed about and the moment has come.
I pull out the winning post-it and toss the rest into my paper recycling basket. All those names! I wish I could put all of you in the book. Thanks so much for stopping by the blog and now that you know the way, don't be a stranger, as they say!
What? Oh, yes --- the winner is Susan Bell!!!! (Susan has been a very constant commenter.)
Susan, let me know what name and a few attributes of the character. We'll discuss possibilities.
