Trick or Treat

365.125 - Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

A Rave: When you enter a writing contest, it’s a lot like going trick or treating. You dress up your story in its finest costume and send it out into the world, never knowing whether you’ll be rewarded with Butterfingers (the best candy in the world) or some no-name chocolate filled with coconut (bleah!).

I recently got the results from a contest I entered last month. I finaled, which means at this point, it’s looking like I might have hit the Butterfinger jackpot. Of course, I’m still waiting to see if I actually won, so it may be that my treat may turn out to be only a Reese’s Cup. Either way, it’s better than coconut!

      I did, but it was down to the wire because we were in Pennsylvania visiting schools on Thursday and Friday. I don’t normally leave things to the last minute, so I was sweating it!
