You're a Winner in My Eyes



 

This year was quite the adventure for Valkyrie's Cry and I. We entered two different First-Chapter-of-your-Novel contests and did very well!


The first contest was the Palouse Writer's Guild, awarded in June. I took second place in that contest.

 


 

The second contest was the bigger, and highly competitive Pacific Northwest Writer's Association contest. I was one of nine finalists.



It's been very rewarding to participate in these two contests. I've learned a lot and hope to continue to improve as a writer.
