I know, I'm shocked too! Who would have thought that someone would actually want to print my writing! I tell you what though, I sure am thanking my lucky stars for this opportunity! :)
In all seriousness, I am so excited! I have enjoyed writing all my life. In fact, I still remember my very first work, written (by hand I might add) at the tender age of eight. It was a fiction work entitled, "Twister" and came in at a whopping thirteen pages of note book paper.....not too shabby for a third grader, if I do say so myself. I even tied them together with yarn and drew a picture for the cover.
From that time I continued to write, winning two creative writing awards in school and having a few pieces printed in the school's literary magazine. That was about the extent of my writing achievement.....UNTIL NOW!
A few months back I submitted an essay to a magazine called "The Motherhood Muse". http://www.themotherhoodmuse.com/
I am pleased to announce that my essay, "Lessons from Lamb's Ears" will be featured in their spring edition, debuting in April 2010.
I will make sure to post links when it comes out. Until then, join me in a small happy dance?? :)
