I won! Woo Hoo!


I won I won I won! Sorry… excitement grabbed me by the collar and tossed me around the room a bit.

What did I win, you ask? First place in a contest held by super blogger, and author, Natalie Whipple! Check out the post here! Oh, and if you’ve never read her blog, save yourself the time and add her feed to the reader of your choice now. She is sure to be one of your fav’s.

I would also like to add that I am particularly honored to win among such qualified and talented writers. Really, these folks are all worthy of publication (and I believe some of them already have books on the shelf).

The other two winners were Dara Sorenson and Jessie Oliveros. Be sure to read their entries and click on their names to catch up on their blogs. I am sure we’ll be seeing great things from them!

    lol. No, I didn’t. I’ve always been fascinated by the subject, and a buddy of mine (Toff, the chohost of The Write Podcast) is, what I like to call, a hobby linguist.

    Thanks! It was fun to write. I wish I could finish my larger projects so quickly 🙂

  3. CONGRATULATIONS! Natalie is amazing and that contest had some stiff competition!

    Also, congrats on the twins! Holy crap! You’re going to have your hands full!

    That is stupendously awesome!

    And I really liked the story. The fact that you integrated those five oddball words so well makes the whole thing even better.

    I salute you!
