Writer's Contest Result

I won!

Pardon me for just blurting it out, but I couldn't help myself. I actually won first place in the Southwest Writer's Annual contest, in the category of nonficton essay!


I am thrilled to the bone. Someone besides my family and friends thinks I can write well!

I could hardly believe it. But there it is, in print.

My first writing competition. I'm very happy.

Peg--that is just EXCELLENT! Congratulations!!!

And so good to see a post from you, I was beginning to wonder if you'd disappeared from the 'sphere.

I hope you're going to celebrate...a lot!

And drop by my blog for Grand Rounds--I hosted today. And WOW, my sitemeter has gone bonkers!

Way to go, Dr. Peg!!!!!!!!!!!!

But, I must tell you, a little secret:
I am not surprised!

I KNEW it in my bones. If they'd posted odds on your winning, I'da placed a bet on you!

That's wonderful news!!!

Get used to it. It's the first of many awards, I'm sure.

I'm sure there are other award-winning essays I've read here, such as the childbirth story, that will do well in the next competition--that's a surefire Winner, too.

You sure deserve it!

Kudos to you Drrrrr. Peg. From now on I think I'll call you Dr. Doomuch. You're Dr. Pegger Doomuch to me. I want to fix myself a cuppa and curl up to read the next post you decide to not file away.
