More Writing Success

I Submitted a short children's story to the 81st Annual Writer's Digest Competition back in May. So long ago that I'd almost forgot about it. I certainly was sure I didn't do any good.

But I was wrong!

Early Thursday morning I received an email from Writer's Digest that my story, 'Leprechaun Tours Australia' has been awarded seventh place in the Young Adult/Children's Fiction category. I said 'Wow'.

I will get a prize money cheque  in the mail some time in the next 60 days. I don't know much it will be, but it will be my first ever cheque for writing something. 'Wow'

I also get a whole bunch of free stuff and discounts from Writer's Digest, and I can display the really cool 'Award Winner' thing that is up in the corner. My story will also be published in a book next year containing all the winning stories. 'Wow'
