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.
