Seeing your name in print

There’s just something about seeing my name in print that makes me absolutely giddy. My writer’s group, the Fresno Sci Fi and Fantasy Writers Group, recently published (albeit self-published) an anthology of short stories.

I was one of the writers who made it through the selection process (yes, we had to meet criteria in order to make it into the book), and am quite proud to be in league with some of the wonderful writers in this book.

Life, with its many curve balls, has kept me away from the blog. I don’t see that changing for the next few months, but I wanted to post about our Anthology (like 2 months late, of course), and I wanted to share this picture with you:

My everlasting child-hood best friend took the antho with him on his honeymoon. Perhaps I should be jealous that he is sitting on this beach, but I am too elated with seeing my name, in print, being read there.

There’s just something about seeing my name in print…

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!

A long week

It’s been a loooong week. The wife is sick. The toddler is sick. The 7 year old… well… he’s 7.

I’ve been working long hours and sleeping few. I have, though, finished the first draft of a short story for my writing group’s Anthology project! Yay!

Another win today… I finished recording interviews for the first 6 episodes of The Write Podcast. Many of the interviewees had some really encouraging words for writers like me, and today turned out to be one of those “I can make it as a writer” days.

By the way, if some of my posts seem like fragmented, random thoughts… it’s because they are! Thank you, lack of sleep! I couldn’t have made a confusing post without you!
