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.
