I Won The Lottery!!

No, not the monies ... but, for an aspiring author, the prize is just as good:

Manucript Critique by Agent Stephen Barbara!

If you went to school in the U.S., you've probably read THE LOTTERY by Shirley Jackson. As a young girl who wanted to be a writer when she "grew up," this vivid short story definitely left a big, purple, internal mark.

I agonized for days over how much I felt comfortably losing - tickets were $1 and you could buy as many as you wanted. When I saw my name on the winning list, I was dancing on cloud 9!

I'll keep you posted on THE UNICORN TAMER'S journey to Mr. Barbara! Swoon!

Yay! Congrats! I have also wanted to be a writer for my whole life, and am now - at almost 30 - forcing myself to at least try. Keep us posted on your results!

Hi Melann,

Thanks for the kind words! And welcome to my blog! Almost 30 sounds like a great age to start something you love to do ... keep me posted on your writing!
