Two things happened today that made this amateur writer the happiest girl in the world.(:

First, a sweet friend told them that one of my poems had been so good it made her cry.

And second, I found out that I am one of the finalists in a national poetry contest with about 2-4000 poetry entries!!!

This is the first time anything like this has happened, and I didn’t realize how important this was to me. Thank you, Jesus, for this blessing.(:

  1. I am so proud of you!!!! GOOD FOR YOU!!!

    On a side note, you should sign up for these two free newsletters, and every Friday you will get a newsletter with writing contests to enter. I usually just enter the ones that have no entry fee. But if you can start to win some of those and get some stuff published, you’ll start building your resume early. In fact, one of the newsletters just has contests for “youth” (elementary-college) to enter.


    So, so, so proud! Is it one of the poems on your blog? If not, can we read it?

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you! One contest may not seem like a huge deal, but to me this means the world.

    Jackie, I will definitely sign up. It look likes they are great opportunities.
