A Victory!

I reached a major goal yesterday when Armchair Interviews award my short story, An Unexpected Dream, second place in their Thanksgiving Short Story Contest. I'm excited because, not only is their website is an award winner, but I set a goal to be recognized by published authors as having talent. I've been so fortunate to have people encouraging me in my writing, my wife Pam, Cec Murphey, my dear friend, and Matt Jones, my critique partner.

Today, I still have two goals unfulfilled. I still need an agent, and I'm still not published. But, I'm pumped. I'm entering three manuscripts in the Genesis Contest next year, and I have hope for success. My motto is: Kept Writing And Never Give Up!
