How Sweet It Is!

Last year, the Chicken Soup editors put out a call for stories for their book about Brain Power. So I wrote about how studying a new language helped to pull me out of a mental funk. I wrote the thing in about an hour, emailed it off, and forgot about it. But someone decided they liked it and it's included in the anthology. That was great news to me!

As part of my compensation for the story, I get ten copies of the book. The package arrived sometime last week. Here's the book! And since I "created" the story, I guess that's going to count as my creative endeavor for the week. The book is below – so cool to see my name in print!

I'm leaving on Thursday for Chicago, where I'll attend the Spring Fling Writers' Conference. I'll also have a chance to visit with my college roommate, Debbie. So I'd better close this down and get ready! Gotta get inspired to do some more writing!


  1. Congratulations, Patricia. Enjoy Chicago.

  2. What a wonderful surprise. Congratulations. I hope you are having a fabulous time at the conference.
