The Saddlin' Station's Writing Contest
April 1st - July 15

I want to thank all of you and your enthusiasm for this recent contest!! I've so far had two stories submitted and a few more people have said that they will try to write one as well! (And I'm going to hold you to it!;) *snicker*) But what I'm most pleased about is the fact that it has been purly for FUN, and that you have freedom to take all the time you need...not to mention wanting to participate in spite of the prizes not being monumental or anything. :o)
