I have some really great news to share with everyone.
1 - Several weeks ago I was accepted into Sigma Tau Delta, which is the international English Honor Society. It is for English Majors only.
2 - Last night I was awarded second place at the League of Utah Writers' annual convention banquet for my creative nonfiction piece called, What an Adventure We Had. It is in the non-paid category. By that I mean, I haven't been paid for any of my writing before.
Now I am looking for a publisher.
I'm really excited and can't wait to see what is up ahead for my writing.
