To Be Published

Another writing “win” to report:

Back on September 3rd I posted this…

One of my 101 Goals in 1001 Days is to submit my writing to a contest.  It looks like I might be able to achieve this goal AND participate in a worthy cause.  Have you heard about The Nielsen Family and the way internet bloggers are coming together to help their family in this time of tragedy?  If not, you can learn more HERE.

A very funny blog I just discovered is holding a contest for publication in an upcoming blog book (working title, “Something Cleverish”), all proceeds going to the Nie Recovery Fund.

Well, I submitted my story, and it was just announced today that my submission made it into the book (along with 35 others)!  I’d love to think that the editors had to pick from hundreds and hundreds of submissions, putting me in the top 10% or something for being chosen.  But then I remembered it’s not nice to be so conceited, so instead, I’m just super grateful.

I will let you know more details as the book is put together, and you have to know that I’ll be hitting you up to buy a copy for yourself!  How can you go wrong? – it’ll be funny, you’ll know someone in it, and your money will go to a great cause!  (hey, maybe I’ll even autograph your copy!  and no, I’m really not letting this get to my head!)
