The phone rang today, and WOW what a surprise!
Bill called me at school. I thought sure he was inviting me to lunch, but it was even better! He said there was a message on the answering machine that he thought I'd be interested in when I got in from work. I startled him when I darted home at 11:30 on my lunch break. It was well worth the frantic double zip to and from school. The president/editor-in-chief of a publication left a comment about my recent submission. "I love your work; you write beautifully. I would like to speak with you about being a commissioned writer for my publication." I spoke with her this afternoon, and she asked me to consider being an ongoing contributing writer. Details to follow. I certainly know about deadlines; I write a bi-weekly column for Hockey Stop. My head is spinning with story possibilities. And tomorrow is the poetry throwdown. Hope to see some of you there.
