Yesterday I found out that I won second place in the Susan Wittig Albert LifeWriting Competition. You can read my entry here.
Those of you who are regular visitors to My Own Velvet Room may find this piece familiar as it originated on this blog a few months ago. Due, in part, to some of the comments that you made about the piece, I was inspired to polish it up and submit it. If you had not encouraged me by your comments it's very likely that I would not have submitted this piece at all. So, thank you for commenting!
On another note, I wanted to share with you an excellent blog that my friend Janna has called Something She Wrote. Janna recently had a contest where she awarded a prize for the 100th person to follow her blog, but the coolest thing is how she announced the contest. She did a video post! I have no idea how she did it, but I aim to find out. Wouldn't it be cool if we all did a little video post of ourselves?
Hmmm....think about it.....!
