A couple new updates that I think are amazing.
1.) The new school district that I'll be teaching in is amazing. I have never been greeted and treated so warmly and positively by an entire group of people in my life. I can't wait to be a part of this great tradition.
2.) Ten minutes ago I was named as a finalist in a large lit journal's writing contest. One in a million and all that jazz...but it still feels great to be chosen as a finalist.
3.) I've been writing up a storm. Thank goodness. Sometimes I get scared that I've lost my creative muse, and then I realize that it's actually just that life has been kicking me in the teeth, and then I get five minutes to myself and create something, and then I feel better, because I still feel like a creative person :)
