Good news!

Hi K,

I have good news, and these days, with all the doom and gloom, I'm just going to sing a little, enjoy a good moment in my life. My story, "Swimming with Dolphins" in Chautauqua, 20th Anniversary of the Chautauqua Writers' Center has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. How lovely to know the editors think it's such a good story. This certainly helps me to keep my butt in the seat, my fingers tapping away.

As a matter of fact, that's what I'm going to do right now. Work on that that final draft (I hope!) of the next novel. . .

Peace and all good things,

Hi Diane, Erin and John,

Thanks for the thoughts! I'm so pleased anyone actually comes to my blog!

And thanks, Erin. That story went through at least 15 drafts, and the last one I completely changed the voice and found, in some moment of grace, what the story was realy all about. Funny I didin't see that for 14 drafts!

Peace and all good things,
