this just in…

okay, ask and ye shall receive has taken a whole new meaning for me. remember how earlier i was calling the Poetry Rivals competition a scam and that the scammers figured out a way to capitalize on a writers’ vanity and ego? Well, guess what came in today’s mail!?!? a copy of “The Power of the Pen” Poetry Rivals’ Collection 2009.  And guess who’s poem is published on page 150!?!??! MINE.

Hallelujah!

That’s all i can come up with. i laughed as soon as i saw the book. then i carefully read through the names of probably 200-300 writers who submitted their pieces for the competition. Everyone literally is a winner! But there’s my name and “Courage” in print. This changes everything.

Today I become a published author.
