I may not have won the Mega Million, but I got some news that made me feel pretty darn happy. Last Friday afternoon, after finishing a round frustrating conference calls for the day job, my iPhone dinged with a new email. I checked it and was surprised and beyond thrilled to learn my second book, Love’s Second Chance, is a finalist in the Write Stuff Contest, held by the Connecticut Chapter of RWA.
It took me about three times reading the email before the reality really sunk in. Wow! I FINALED!! My FIRST final. YIPEE!! I told my husband and then proceeded to tell my critique partners, family, and friends. I was so excited, my heart pounded and my hands shook.
I’ll find out if my entry won at their conference on May 12th. I signed up for the conference the next day, which I was contemplating attended regardless of the final. And a couple of my CPs are coming with me, which will be a blast. Look out Connecticut, the Femmes are coming!
