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. 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.

  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. 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! 😉

  4. Lynn,

    Mega congrats on the contest final. It feels so good to know others enjoyed your story, doesn’t it? All the best to you as you await the placements.
