Good News in the mail!

The very last piece of mail in the giant stack of mail that was delivered to my house after being gone for a week was an official looking envelope from Writer's Digest.

The letter inside informed me that my story, Patchwork By The River (submitted under the title Patchwork Goodness) got an Honorable Mention in the Children's/Young Adult Fiction category of the 78th Annual Writer's Digest Writing Competition! Sweet!

It feels pretty awesome to get a happy letter in the mail, even if it's only an honorable mention. Honorable mention is nice. And for my writing, not even my art (plus I never enter contests -- this one was a fluke, I swear). Kinda makes having the flu more tolerable.
