*Shock* Did you get published?! *Delight* *Quill**RibbonB**Quill* Wow! you WON that contest? *Quill**RibbonV**Quill* I know how hard it is to land a literary agent, . . . and you DID it?! *Quill**RibbonO**Quill* *Gasp!* You earned what writing award? *Quill**RibbonY**Quill* It's just terrific that you got into that MFA in Writing program! *Quill**RibbonG**Quill* Did you really get a book deal?!!! *Quill**RibbonP**Quill*
Come on, spill it -- Don't hold back -- I want details!

Who says a brag is a bore? Not in this room! That's right. If you have something to boast about, you can do it here.*Wink* I want to live vicariously through you (and get inspired by your awesome-ness *Delight*). So yeah baby, if you won it, earned it, got it, published it, landed it, or were awarded it -- and 'it' has to do with *Writing*writing*Writing*, then you've got 'Bragging Rights' as far as I'm concerned! The room is filling up with interested people who want to hear all about it. Go ahead, get into the spotlight -- submit a Brag and tell us all about your writing success. You could win a merit badge!

***See below the Guidelines for Special Grand Opening Prizes*Exclaim****

Out of every twenty-five (25) Brags submitted, two (2) lucky winners will be chosen to receive a merit badge*:

Top Brag Prize - The one bragger that makes me most want to jump up and down and shout, "You're a star!"
Lucky Brag Prize - Chosen via virtual dice.

*All merit badges gifted will be of my choosing. Each will represent the winner's writing achievement. For example, if a contest winner is drawn, she/he may win a CONGRATULATIONS mb; if a newly published author is drawn, a PUBLISHED mb will be given; if a NaNoWriMo winner is drawn, he/she will win a NANO WINNER mb; if a writing school graduate is drawn, she will be gifted a SUCCESS mb; etc.
I reserve the right to increase or decrease prizes at any time, depending on available funds.


*Check5*Submit your writing achievemnt as a 'Brag' in the box below.

*Check1* This is an 'In and Out' - out with the old, in with the new. In that spirit, all accomplishments submitted should be newly achieved or earned, within the last three (3) months six (6) months from the date of your Brag posted here.

*Check2*All accomplishments submitted must be related to the craft of writing. Any Brag unrelated to writing will be disqualified from the merit badge drawing.
