Small Victories…and Big Ones

As a writer, I’ve learned to celebrate small victories—

the revision that came together more easily than I thought,

the story my critique group loves,

a kind rejection from an editor,

finding the perfect word.

But it’s especially nice to celebrate a BIG victory, one that I can share with family, friends, and my critique groups – they hold me to a high standard and I appreciate it!

Thank you so much to the Barbara Karlin grant committee. I am truly honored.
