The Brits have claimed this little piece of Oklahoma
This morning, I received an e-mail from the editor of The Report, a magazine that goes out to members of the Oklahoma Writer’s Federation Inc. He wanted to know how I felt about winning a 1st place in the OWFI annual writing contest. Well, I didn’t even know I’d won, did I? Also there are about 30 different categories, and I’d entered 8 of them, so, which one had won? The winners are only announced at the OWFI writer’s conference, and I hadn’t gone this year, and nor had anyone else from my writer’s group.
Naturally, I was absolutely delighted to know I’d won something, but I was dying to know which category it was. So, I e-mailed him. When he hadn’t replied after ten minutes, I e-mailed the Prez of OWFI, begging her to put me out of my misery. She e-mailed me right back, thank god! I won the non-fiction book category. Yippee!!! :-0
Funnily enough, I had just finished putting together a non-fiction book proposal to send out to publishers. Is this win a good omen, or what? I haven’t stopped grinning since I found out. Needless to say, there will be mucho celebrating at our house tonight, (in between dodging tornadoes. Yes, we have yet another warning in effect).
Cheers, make mine a large one.
P.S. Sorry about this format but blogger is refusing to leave any gaps between my paragraphs. Bloody thing!
