I love the whole creative process of stories I would never have written on my own.  The days following the submitting, if I liked my story, leave me all warm an fuzzy.

Even if I don't score. Even, if after doing a re read just before the results are posted, I find the missing commas, periods, wrong words for a right place, dangling or squinting modifiers - just to name a few.

I still come away with a satisfaction that only ever manifests itself through creation of something that no one else can duplicate.

Call me crazy, but I love this!

+1 to all of that.

Aside from the challenge itself, the wordbabes are indeed a reward...

I even manage to sleep on result nights now. I'm either growing tougher or older.
