Excitement in the Email Box

It's 11:46 p.m. and I should be asleep. I have to face 20 kids tomorrow at the crack of dawn. But I am so excited because GUESS WHAT. I submitted an article to Chicken Soup for the Soul and I just received an email that I've made the first cut. They sent me a contract and would like to use my story in an upcoming book. "Teens Talk Middle School". The book will be coming out in November of this year. Although I had to sign a contract...my piece has not been purchased yet. But I'm very optimistic.

They asked for my "bio". I had to write it tonight very quickly. After some hesitation...I wrote on the bottom..."visit her blog at ......" They suggested we put our emails if we wanted...but I think the blog is better. But then I wondered...do I really want my blog address going into a Chicken Soup book? Oh well...you only live once. Maybe I'll get some interesting visitors.

Goodnight!

Sharon,
Way to go, girl! That's great! If they understand your talent, I'll expect my signed copy at Christmas! Uh, Maggie was wondering when you're going to contribute to..."Chicken Soup for the Doggie Soul."
