“Free critique”, “writing contest”, and soon after, “scary anthology” were key phrases that captured my writer’s heart during July/August, 2017, on WordPress.
I entered Dan’s July writing contest and found someone who enjoys spreading his writing wings to the mutual benefit of other writers.
A bonus in this experience was meeting other writers who also shared their stories as incurable wordsmiths.
If writing’s in your blood, try your pen in one of Dan’s contests.
And, by the way, my frosting on the cake was a roomful of relatives applauding me at a recent family gathering
– as though I’d just won the Nobel Prize for Literature
when I shared with them my journey to first-time commercial publication.
- Always believe in your writing;
- always pursue your writing goals;
- and never, ever throw away that 30-year-old birthday card your mother sent you that encouraged you to “follow your dreams”!
Thank you, Barbara, for such kind words. It’s been fun getting to know you, and your writing is terrific. That comment about your relatives applauding? That’s possibly the coolest authorey thing I’ve ever heard.
Gang, it was a blast working with such amazing talents like Barbara Anne Helberg on this scary anthology.
