I recently found out that my submission to a writing competition earned an honorable mention for my Chicago Fire story. The skeptic in me remembered elementary school science fairs where most people walked away with an honorable mention. As it turns out, that wasn’t the case. There were two honorable mentions and one overall victor for the chapter book category. So my little skeptic said, out of 5 submissions. All-in-all there were 32 submission. Of those were of course picture books as well.
I’m going to quiet the skeptic in me and accept the encouragement. It came at just the right time when I’m starting to run out of steam to get me through this revision.
Thank you, Litchfield Education Foundation for the pat on the back.
