Winston Wins!

Geplaatst op 14 februari, 2018 om 17:30

YAY! It’s that time of year again, Susanna Hill’s Valentiny Writing Contest! Come and join in the fun and/or read and enjoy the entries. Here is my ( last minute) entry:

Winston Wins! (213 words) — Corine Timmer (

Winston the Woodpecker couldn’t sleep. He only had one thing on his mind—the redhead he had spotted the previous day. A crimson colour so deep, it had set his heart aflutter. She was the hen he wanted to invite to the Spring Ball.

But he was not the only one.

Some of his friends had noticed her too—and they were bigger and better drummers. Their neck muscles were stronger and their bills thicker and sturdier. They drummed for long periods of time without effort.

How can I compete? Winston pondered. Everyone knew that the best and loudest drummers got the nicest hens—and this hen was dazzling.

All through the night, Winston thought of a plan to win her heart. But it was not until the waste collectors arrived to empty the bins, that an idea popped into his mind.

So, the next morning, instead of squabbling over a few dead tree trunks, Winston flew to one of the empty litter bins, gripped the rim, and started to drum.


The surrounding trees and houses shook as the sound bounced off them. Winston drummed and drummed until he had caught the attention of all the hens. But he was only interested in the one.

Had she heard him?

I wish to show my thanks to this writer for rescuing me from this particular circumstance. After surfing through the the web and getting methods which are not beneficial, I was thinking my life was done. Living devoid of the approaches to the issues you have solved through your post is a serious case, as well as those which could have negatively affected my career if I had not noticed your web page. Your own personal knowledge and kindness in touching all the details was precious. I'm not sure what I would have done if I had not come across such a solution like this. I am able to now look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time so much for this expert and sensible help. I won't hesitate to suggest the website to anyone who would need care on this matter.

I want to express my thanks to the writer just for rescuing me from this scenario. Just after researching through the internet and seeing techniques which were not helpful, I assumed my life was over. Existing without the presence of solutions to the problems you've solved through your entire site is a critical case, and those that could have in a wrong way affected my career if I hadn't come across the blog. Your main ability and kindness in controlling every part was important. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't come upon such a step like this. I can also now look forward to my future. Thank you very much for this high quality and result oriented help. I won't be reluctant to endorse your site to anybody who would like guidance on this subject matter.
