Well, that was a nice surprise!

Jennifer is a gem. If you are not familiar with Jennifer Brown Banks you should be. She features guest bloggers, delivers the goods on writing and provides writing services. My introduction to Jennifer was through a writer's magazine. When I picked it up and read about breaking all the rules, I thought, "Wow! I've been doing that and didn't even know it." Writing and submitting is all about connecting first with your first reader, the editor. Check out Jennifer's blog, Pen and Prosper. I did, and my poem won her contest. My prize came in the mail yesterday, a book on writing, a daily purse planner, other little goodies and CHOCOLATE!

Congrats to you!
This week is Writers' Guild Christmas dinner. We are to take writerly gifts at $5 (impossible). I filled a Christmas piece with assorted chocolates...this post assures me chocolate IS a writerly tool!!!

YAY for you... and chocolate is always a good thing.

Linda,

You deserved it--and much more! Thanks for the mention. :-)

Congratulations. I would be envious of the chocolate, but I am still trying not to render myself comatose on a barrel of fudge that was gifted to me on Saturday.
