Let's Have a Writing Contest

I wanted to do something to celebrate fifty followers (*happy dances*), so why the heck not? A lot of you guys are writers, and I want to read your work. Desperately. So what better way to do that then to have a contest? (I don't know. There probably is. But I want to have a contest.)
So. Let's do this.
-Anyone can enter. You don't have to be following my blog. You don't have to be a fantastic writer, just a passionate one (and you don't even have to be that). I will seriously accept things from five-year-olds, because five-year-olds are adorable.
-Please keep your entries below 1,000 words. If it's close (within a hundred-word range), I'll keep it in. It can be below that, too. I love six word stories. Or three word stories. One word is a little small, but hey, if it's a cool word... ;)
-Speaking of those entries, you can do whatever you want. Flash fiction, short stories, poems, excerpts from your WIP, fanfiction, whatever. Although please no essays. Pleaaase. (If it is an excerpt from your WIP and it's not the very beginning, give me some explanation/backstory so I'm not lost. Please.)
-Keep it little-kid friendly, Christian friendly, God-honoring—whatever you want to call it. You get the point.
-One entry per person. Email your entry to rjlbooks@[at]gmail.[dot]com, with the subject title of "Writing Contest 2014, *your name*." Please give me an actual name, even if it's a fake one. It doesn't have to be your full name. It can just be a first name.
-The contest runs from May 18th to May 25th. I'll give a few hours extra for time zone differences. I'll email you a few thoughts on your piece (most likely my fangirling over all of your awesomeness) by the beginning of June. Possibly before that, depending on how many entries there are.
-There will be one winner. Possibly honorable mentions. They'll be posted here.
If you have any questions, I'll be answering in the comments! Also, don't worry about your entry going to spam. I'll be checking there.
Hope you guys can enter!
