Well, I finally got myself to enter a contest. It was one where you have to enter online, no paper manuscripts. I took a chapter from my latest book, about 6 pages and submitted it under the category: excerpts from longer works. I had to re-type the whole chapter to get it to be a file of its own. I’m older and all these technological things are hard for me. I had to get my bro-in-law to come over and help me actually send it off. He turned it into a doc. file, which they would accept. ANYHOW—boy, wouldn’t I love to win something! Even last place or Honorable Mention. Better yet, one of the prizes of money. Yeah. I could use that right now. I won an Honorable Mention on my poetry collection one time. I was pretty happy over that. RD wrote on here that she bought my book and is going to start reading it! I am so excited! Thank you, RD. I hope it brings miracles into your life. I am praying for you as you read it. I hope and believe it will really make a difference. Lift you up and encourage you. You are such a special young lady. Well, everybody wish me luck on the contest. I should know in about one month. I’m kind of hoping they’ll say something like, “we loved your chapter and would like to see more of the book.” That would be awesome!
