Third Place Winner

At the recent Southwest Writer’s meeting a woman stood up and announced she had received an honorable mention in September’s writing competition. My heart sank. I had not received a letter. Another rejection.

A few days later as I brought in the mail, there was a letter from Southwest Writers. Probably my membership renewal notice. Imagine my surprise when I opened the letter to find that I had won third place for my essay “Advocating for Advocets.”

Rather than rejection, I received confirmation of my writing – an important reinforcement for writiers.
