Choose to Challenge

This little chick-a-de is doing the happy dance!

Now at last I can let everyone in on some great news, my historical nonfiction "RUN! RUN! RUN! The Amazing Story of Elizabeth Zane" was chosen as an honorable mention in a writing contest over at RateYourStory! 

I just love challenges, and this one was extra special because the entries were judged by an excellent group of editor/writers who I admire very much. I know it was no small feat to judge the almost 300 entries. I feel very grateful to the RYS staff and especially to Miranda Paul.

Thanks, Miranda!

Taking chances is the spice of a writers life. Choose to join critique groups, take writing classes, help other writers succeed, and most of all, make friends.

If you are an aspiring writer who needs a critique, the RYS staff is an awesome resource. They offer reasonable rates and even have a free day each month. They also offer different range memberships and/or Speedpasses. Below is a link to check out their site. You WILL be glad you did!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
