Shortlisted for "The Binnacle" 2006 Ultra-Short Competition

The Muse returned and I've been writing the past few days. It's exciting to see words appear on the screen. Yay, Muse!

Other good news: I was shortlisted by University of Maine's "The Binnacle" for the second year in a row. I feel honored to see my name tucked in among such talented writers.

More good news: My daughter, who's in the hospital and almost died last week, finally got her IV removed today!

Et al: I've been asked to do book signings and set up newspaper interviews for two Cup of Comfort books I have essays in. Both have publication dates of September 1. Titles: Cup of Comfort for Grandparents and Cup of Comfort for Mothers To Be.

I'm glad to hear your daughter is making great progress!

And congrats on the other good news, too!

Congrats on all the good news. How did you find out about the Binnacle shortlist? I'm on it too (apparently) but I didn't get any announcement.
