I Grad-gi-ated!!!

I received a diploma today from the Institute of Children's Literature. It was a course on writing for children and teens. I have loved writing for as long as I can remember and have notebooks full of poems, short stories and even a novel.

I learned so much from this course and have narrowed down my area of expertise to writing short stories for 8-12 year olds. Hopefully in the near future I will start submitting my stories to publishers. Most likely children's magazines. It is a good feeling to finish something and come away a better person, and writer.


Ya me!

Cheesy gold rimmed frame, here I come!

good for you Taush. I've noticed that this might be the time for us. Do you know what I mean? Setting goals, accomplishing them, and just focusing on what we can do to better ourselves. It what makes us be a better wife and mother. SO keep going, it's just making you a BETTER person than you already are.

thanks for all the tips. I need them, and keep them coming if you think of more. I'm excited, then I get down all in the same day. I think that's normal though. Doubts of not being able to do it come all too often. I know I can do it... it's just fear.

btw- Oscar has to be better than Edward, cause Edward's not real. But then again, that's why I LOVE Edward so much. So maybe he is better. j/k
