Hey readers! We did it! We’ve reached the end of the first round of Story Sprites!

So how did each of us do?

Lyn:

This is going to be so embarrassing, but I really fell short this round. My health and the general anxiety of the holidays, I was sidetracked with my reading. As a result, I did not complete one single path. I was close on two, but close doesn’t count. Here is my record.

So shameful.

Kara:

I enthusiastically threw myself into this round of Story Sprites. I kind if just read what I wanted at the beginning of the round, but about halfway through I noticed that I was really close to completing a couple paths, so I went for it and got them. Then I was enjoying it so much that I decided to do another. I would have kept going, but I ran out of time. I’m really enjoying this though, and I am participating fully in the next round as well.

Also, I am really proud of myself after my poor showing last time!

  2. I did not do well this time around, partially because I’ve read very little these last few months. I have partials for all the categories, but each category had one or two that I just couldn’t complete. Next time!
