Congrats to a Very Funny Girl

Just when I thought that I had nothing interesting to post, I got some terrific news from a writer friend. Donna, of Donna's Book Pub, won first place in the Erma Bombeck writing contest! This is an annual competition and Donna just received the call that she won in the humorous essay category. Do pop over to offer your congratulations if you can, because this is a major feat. I've known Donna since I joined Saturday Writers about 4 or 5 years ago. She's a talented writer, and so deserving of this major recognition.

Now doesn't that story motivate you to write and send your work to a contest or publication? You never know. You could be the next one to win big (or even small, I'll take whatever I can get).

But one thing is certain...if you don't submit, you won't win.

So let's all get to work and submit those sublime stories. I want YOU to be the next one to post about your writing success.















Bogey, would you puh-leeze move over so I can create!

Congrats to Donna on her essay!
I once had an article published in a cat magazine about our feral cat we had years ago, I was tickled pink!

How great for Donna - mum intends to release her creative juices in her bloggie - I'm hoping that doesn't make a mess she will blame me for!!

Tail Wuggles, Rubie

Looks like Bogey is just helping your hand out on the computer keyboard trying to help give you some inspiration.
