It’s not easy. As more than one person has observed, coming up with ideas is easy. Keeping them simple is hard work.
But it’s necessary. Without the art of idea distillation, you get lost & frustrated and ultimately will confuse your audience.
I called upon Tracking Wonder’s apprentice Mary Cinadr to be our main judge. Mary has extensive background in helping businesses, NPOs, and individuals write better copy, shape their brand identities and manuscripts, and execute more effective marketing plans for their brilliant ideas. She proved the ideal judge to help select the winners from a stellar list of submissions.
Here are our winners and runners-up!
First place: Lara Edwards
Second place: Peggy Acott
Third place: Ginny Taylor
Ginny receives a signed copy of The Journey from the Center to the Page: YogaPhilosophies & Practices as Muse for Authentic Writing to keep her anchored and grounded on her writing quest.

What else do I need to say?
I’m jazzed by how many of us are showing up this year to create the stories we must tell.
