Remember that national writing contest I wrote about a long time ago? And then I found out I was one of the short listed authors? Well, I found out last night that I won an Award of Merit. What I mean to say is, “I CAME IN SECOND!” Sorry for yelling, but second is so incredibly okay for me. See, I’m not a writer. I’ve told you all along that I was just telling my story. But it’s so exciting to read what the judges had to say about my book and how I put it together and strung my words into sentences. They liked it 🙂 And now I’m getting a certificate (the award) to hang up on my wall and look at and tell me that I did okay. Very sweet affirmation.
So I’m celebrating here today by going for a bloodtest and dr.’s appointment and then, coffee with my sister. Yes, I know how to party!
