Let the contest begin! (See this link for more contest information.)
Here is how it works. I will ask a question from Starlighter. If you know the answer, post a comment with the answer. Comments aren’t automatically published right away, so you won’t see your comment unless I approve it. The system sends me an email every time someone posts a comment, so the first email I get with the correct answer will be entered in the drawing for the cloak and sword.
Since I will be involved in many speaking events during this contest, it might take a while for me to process the answers, so please be patient. I will publish only the first correct answer, so you don’t have to worry about a wrong guess being put on public display. I will be the only one who sees it.
If you qualify and are put into the drawing, please don’t try to answer any further questions. Only one entry per person is allowed, and it will help if I don’t have to check to see if people have entered before.
Here is the first question.
Koren has a memory concerning what her father used to say to her, and she whispers it to herself as she is going to sleep. What does she whisper to herself?
