I did it! I actually did it!

I won the readers’ choice award at Midlife Collage!  I’ve never won anything in my life for my writing.  I’m all tingles and smiles!  I can’t believe it!  I really can’t believe it.  *Squeal*  *jumping up and down*

Wow.  I would like to take a minute to thank everyone who voted for my non-fiction short story, Baby.  She was truly a special dog and she is still missed by our family.  I would also like to give a very warm ‘thank you’ to Donna Balon, Editor at Midlife Collage, for hosting these weekly contests and opening the door to many writers and authors.

In celebration of my first ever contest win, I would like to share some virtual goodies.  I hope you enjoy them.  I know I would if I really had them!!!!  🙂

If you are interested in reading my winning story about Baby, please head on over to my short stories tab.

Whoo hoo!!!!

  1. Jen, I read your story and it was deeply moving. It’s not at all surprising that your story received so many votes. Congratulations are certainly due and I love seeing your success, love seeing you start to receive the recognition you so richly deserve.

    Stay on the path. Keep writing and inspiring others to write. Keep sharing your gift.


    1. aww, Tristan, thanks! You’re a doll. Keep doing what you’re doing because it’s very important. I, too, am involved, just not to the extent you are. Thank heavens, we are on a common path.
