Hope Was

Keyboard

I shut down the computer twice, but the e-mail didn’t vanish. It’s been four days now, and it still hasn’t gone away. My world is aslant. The editor wrote; she wants my book.

For the voting public, that last compound sentence probably invalidates the 33 words of first person narrative. Although I am still technically writing in the first person, I have stepped slightly outside to make generic observations. Possibly, it’s still considered appropriate or close enough for country, since the two third person statements (“The editor wrote; she wants…”) are actually my observations. But it’s too esoteric. I think it’s fair game to enter, but vote for someone else, someone who isn’t blowing their own horn, K? This post is nonfiction. I’ll elaborate tomorrow or Monday.

  3. Great narrative and congrats. I’m not an expert, but based on the Wiki link provided by Trifecta, I think reciting what someone else said to you is ok. Well done in any case!

    • Downloaded but not yet read. For obvious reasons, it goes to the computer kindle, not the one that belongs to Caroline, and I’ve been swamped with grading. March is my month ‘off’ at work, so I should (once I get February’s grades turned in) have time to read this, finish Buck’s Landing, and get my hands on Cam and Angela’s anthology.

  4. Much congratulations to you. From what I know of your work, this recognition is well-earned and well-deserved. Enjoy the moment.

  5. Hell, who gives a crap if it’s right for this contest or not? I can’t imagine not sharing such news with everyone right away, except, like you said, for being afraid of jinxing it somehow.
    I’m so dense, I started to wonder why everyone was bragging up their sites so much. So, yeah, hop over and see mine, what the heck? ;)

  6. Frankly, I don’t care if you followed the rules strictly or strayed a bit. “She wants my book.” !!! Jessie, that’s fantastic!
