A little brag

I was just informed yesterday from a newbie publishing company the my poem entered in their Poetry Contest has placed runner up (2nd place). I can't give any details yet as the press release hasn't been published yet. It comes with a nice cash payment and publication in the Fall 2008.

They said I came oh so close to placing first, but second is better then nothing. I'll take it with honor. I am happy as I have been on a mini streak of rejections of late (3 in a row).

Glad you have enjoyed my haiku written off the top of my head on the spot in your blog Maya.

Thank you for taking time to visit here and for leaving the nice comment. You are very sweet.

Two busy days coming up; ran in the moonlight tonight, speaking of running, gorgeous silent night on the foothills leading to the canyons. 'night!

& wow, congrats! just read your post, making me long for some writing time again, my class is taking up most of the time that work and the time I promised to the Obama Dems doesn't. Most of my writing has been on my blogs -- journaling my running and some stuff from my dream journal. GAH, am rambling again, good night :)
