WINNER Writing Contest #43: Heidi

Congratulations HEIDI ! Your sentence provides a story (which I love) and it completely matches my mood for the morning. I’m either going to need another cup of coffee or your shovel.

Here is Heidi’s #43 winning sentence:

He shoved her into the ground so hard she felt like the hole her body created was for a rebirth, especially when she stood up clenching a shovel and smacked him senseless; a new feeling -freedom- filled her as she walked away.
