    To be honest I am very disappointed with the results. I was hoping for atleast third prize if not for winning the contest. I felt my story was very good. It was very well appreciated by fellow ISCians too but now I realise that I exceeded the word limit. I didn't notice there was a word limit. Because of my carelessness I couldn't win a prize. It feels really bad not winning a prize after a lot of hard work but I learnt my lesson. I will take care of it in the upcoming competitions.
    Anyways, congratulations to all the winners. They all wrote wonderful stories which were a joy to read.

    Don't sweat the small stuff and it's all small stuff.

    Hearty congratulations to all the winners of the contest. Creativity is an art. It cannot be achieved in a day. It needs constant efforts and nourishment. The contestants have shown that even a simple topic can be turned into a sparkling gem with their creative touch.

    The articles created by these creators with mere touch of their creativity, will surely help others to learn how to create a good article and motivate them to follow those creators.

    I have joined just yesterday and need some time to clearly understand the rules and regulations of the site. Therefore, I could not take part in any of the ongoing contests but hope to do so in the near future.

    I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep.

    Congratulations to all the prize winners of " Me-a ribbon' creative writing contest.

    I regret that I did not participate. It was due to sheer procrastination. As I was having some other matters, I kept postponing the writing and could not meet the deadline. There was good participation in the contest and all participants deserve appreciation.

    This was one tough competition. The ideas and presentation of every member was amazing. I'd like to applaud for every participant along with the winners for their splendid contribution.
    But I don't get it. This time I really gave a very intriguing content. If not first, third atleast.
    I really thought I'd get a prize this time around.

    The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.

    When ISC could not give the award for the others, at least they would have done with the content points. Even that was removed in the name of quality content. But the same thread was appreciated by other members. ?

    I congratulate Ms. Neelam Joshi, Ms. Asha Kurian, Mr. Gagan Ahari, Mr. Suman Sahu, Ms. Soundharya, Ms. Padmini and Ms. Seema Mittal for winning this contest.

    I thank Ms. Vandana for considering my 'unhappy ribbon' for the Joint First Prize.

    I acknowledge that the other stories of the contest are also of really high standard.

    Mr. Nilesh: I do understand your disappointment. In this connection I would like to say that nowadays in case of contest, I check the word-count immediately after completing the story. If it goes beyond the limit, I drastically edit the story. In this story also, I did the same.
