My entry in the contest that I earned a top 5 spot in is featured today on http://the-new-author.blogspot.com/. I hope you will read it and let me know what you think. The blog members will vote on the stories soon. Keep your fingers crossed.
The last time I was a finalist was in 1971 at the Miss Walla Walla pagent! Now, it’s for a much better contest. Not really very significant for anyone else, but an important marker for me. There is a blog called The New Author that recently held a writing contest. I have placed in the top 5 for short stories and will be voted on for the #1 spot soon.
Im humbled and excited that a story of mine caught someone’s attention – especially since it was a true story about my grandmother. It is a story that is near and dear me. I hope you will look at the blog. Im not sure, but I think the site will make it available to read soon. I will keep you all posted.
Nice to have some good news.
Just so you know (if anyone out there reads this)….Im still here and still writing. Not feeling quite so overwhelmed by it all today. I just have to know that whatever my path, I have to walk it. God will have to point me in the right direction. I am praying for an open door to go through and I know a lot of you are hoping for the same. Our efforts are never in vain, but it sure feels good to advance with confidence knowing that you are not just treading water all the time.
