Welcome to the Party My GUTGAA Chickadees - 44 Stellar Adult Entries!

My hunch is some of you are going through some emotional turmoil about entering into GUTGAA. You might have a whole range of emotions that look something like this.

But don't get down chickadees!
You are writers.
You've got this thing!
And even if this contest, this moment, might not end up being the one.
One day, you're going to feel like this.

If you keep putting yourself out there, learning, taking feedback from incredible writers and mentors, and keep writing, one day you'll get that amazing face. Celebrate everything on this journey! Because it's awesome and so are you.

Now For the Brass Tacks:
On the left, about halfway down the page you will find my blog archive. Each of your entries is numbered and titled with its own separate post. You'll find a link to Tweet or Facebook about it should you choose to do so.
Note: If you need me to fix a formatting issue, please e-mail me at the address to the left in the Wonder About Me box. I am not supposed to access Twitter from work.

Your Judges Are:
Wallflower (The silent types always know what they're looking for)
Lumpy Space Princess (For Tang and Space Food Sticks, this judge might just pick you)
The Revisionist (This one wields a delete button but can spot diamonds)
Apple (This one is looking for something with that special sweet crunch and shine)

You can see Deana's post with all of the secret 1st round judges names: HERE

The Contest will run this Monday through Thursday and finalists for the agent round will be announced on Friday! Deana Barnhart will be tallying majority votes and choose ten to advance to the agent round. If a tie-breaker is necessary, GUTGAA judges from the other blogs will be called in to break the tie.

If you're reading this and don't have a clue what GUTGAA is, go: HERE

Anyone can comment, but please let's remember to keep it POSITIVE!
And don't forget to visit the other blogs hosting GUTGAA entries:

And Finally when you stop back in on Friday, there will be a contest! With Choices!
Good Luck Chickadees!


  1. I'm so impressed with the work all of you have put in to this. Well done and thanks!

  2. Thank you so much for hosting us!

    1. You're quite welcome! Happy to have the chance to pay back all the help I received.

  3. I've been away for a month, and on-and-off the internet, so haven't been participating, just popping in and out occasionally to keep track of what's happening. It's a really well organized contest, Jaye! I'm off to read some of the entries now. :)

    1. Carol, it's really all Deana Barnhart's doing. She's the mastermind.

  4. Just saying thanks for hosting and what a great blog you have!


Hey, do you ever wonder why they call it 'your two cents?'
