Busy Summer

In June I got word that I will be published in the 2010 From the Edge of the Prairie book. I was extremely excited but anxious about all the revisions I had to make in a short time. In July I got together with some fellow writers. We are working on developing an upcoming kid's poetry project. I will also be one of four judges for the contest. It will be called POPP (Power of Poetry Project). I entered 5 photos in the Lake County Fair this year and won one second place ribbon. Earlier this month I also sent in 4 poems to The Minnesota League of Poets Poetry Contest and one poem and photo to Spider Magazine. I am keeping my fingers crossed. The kids are back in school now so I hope to have time to polish some more of my stories and submit a couple to publishers. Submitting is one of September's goals for our Magic Hour Writers group.
