I got a call that rocked my world on Friday the 17th…. Light of Truth Finaled in a writing contest.

The call caught me off guard. I was at the grocery store standing in the check out line. I’m like, “715 area code? Who could that be?”

I don’t know what possessed me to answer, I mean, I was next in line to check out. I guess I figured I could because the guy in front of me was taking forever and the call was probably a solicitor.” (And yes, I put my cell number on the no call list, I still get them.)

Anyway, I picked it up and God bless her soul, the woman on the end of the line repeated it, like, six times. I couldn’t believe I was hearing her right.

So, I stepped out of line, letting the person behind me check out while I got the details. I was so excited you’d think I had won!! Heck, even if I don’t win, I’m stoked I finaled.

AND, to make things even BETTER, I was leaving later that night to Sedona, AZ with my dear friend KM for a writer’s retreat.

A weekend of nothing but writing. NO TV, no nothing.

We’d arrived up to Sedona later that night and I was so wired from the final, I did a little work, but the REAL fun started Saturday . . . but you’ll have to stay tuned for that until tomorrow.  ☺


Have you ever won something? Do tell.

  1. Sooo cool! Can’t wait for tomorrow! And yes, I have won something… When I was a young, single gal, living in an apartment, I won a $10 gift card to Home Depot – I had no idea what to do with it at that point – it’s not like I did my own maintenance or anything. I think I gave it away. But – I did win something! 😉

  2. Thanks, guys. I’m so glad to share this news with you. You’ve all been so encouraging along the way. Seriously, you’d think I’d just won a million dollars huh? It’s just a little contest.

    What, you weren’t fixing toilets and hanging drywall when you were young and livin in an apartment, Tracy? **just kidding**

  3. Congratulations. I can’t think of anyone who deserves it more. I am excited to know how the writer’s retreat goes. Thanks and again congratulations.
