A Pleasant Surprise!

Getting the mail is one of the high points of my day (slightly pathetic, I know). Today I received a package from FaithWriters. I was confused and had no clue what it could be. I was thrilled to open the box and find my plaque for my Highly Commended award from the Page Turner Contest, for the first chapter of my manuscript, Mind Over Madi.

What a pleasant and uplifting surprise!

It's so cool - it's glass and has that blue shading thing going on that's visible from certain angles. I found the perfect place for it on my file cabinet where I can look at it every day. It reminds me that I really and truly might just have a chance at this writing thing. Check it out...



Thanks, FaithWriters!

Congrats Lynda. Your comments on my FaithWriters' Challenges have always been helpful. Thanks again for doing the interview with me at Faith Readers. Am really torn at the moment as to whether continue looking for a Literary Agent or to try to pitch my novels directly to publishers. Any suggestions?

One of my least favorite things to do is get mail. I know there will be bills and I hate paying bills LOL.
