Have I mentioned...

...that two of my pieces received Honorable Mention in the Writer's Digest 77th Annual Writing Competition? The letter informs me that "this year's contest attracted over 17,000 entries. Your success in the face of such formidable competition speaks highly of your writing talent, and should be a source of great pride as you continue in your writing career." Both pieces were entered in the Inspirational Writing category. One, fittingly enough, was called The Whole Box of Donuts and contained 5 or 6 of these short essays that are on my blog (ending with the one about the donuts, of course). And the other, titled The Changing Faces of an Unchanging God, consists of short "snapshots" of different moments that I've seen God throughout my life.

Several of you have believed in my writing ability for some time now; maybe this will be the thing that finally allows me to believe I could someday be more than just a wanna-be!

Wow and well done you.
As somebody who takes an occasional look at your blog I admire your excellent use of prose and lavish metaphor to beautifully illustrate your points.
Your recognition is richly deserved and I look forward to seeing your name in lights when you find the inspiration to write a novel.

We should have known for a long time. Remember when you used to write small "essays" in the margin of your test papers so you could "explain" to your teacher just WHY you answered the ways that you did? Or why you didn't understand exactly what they were going for? Once again, you win the "smart one" for this week - until Kerry gets her final grades! Love you.
