Short Writing Contest held by SCBWI

About this time last year I received my first nugget of hope that I was, indeed, capable of writing something print-worthy.

SCBWI offers short writing contests on their web-site. I was the winner of contest #23 "Back to School.

This may be a small success, but to me it was huge. My confidence is very low, and this contest gave me a GREAT BIG BOOST! Thanks SCBWI!

I'm still basking in the prestigious glory. :0)

Check out my article about the history of the London Bridge in Lake Havasu Arizona at Lifted Magazine.

The Unique Antique

"The reality of London Bridge's past and present is stranger than fiction. There have been at least five London Bridges rebuilt over the Thames River in England in the last 2,000 years. Each bridge has its own tale of adventure."
