So, it’s a Wednesday. The traditional hump day of the week, right. But guess what? I got totally exciting news today on this otherwise mundane work day. I got picked by the incomparable Monica B.W. found blogging away at http://monibw.blogspot.com/ to be on #TeamMonica in the wonderlicious writing contest, The Writer’s Voice. Out of 200 amazing entries, I made it to the select top 40 that have now been split into four teams of 10 people. This makes me so excited and nervous and excited and anxious and excited, well I think you get the idea. So I just wanted to pop in and share this. I should be posting my usually scheduled Wonderful Wednesday blog which just so happens to be on perspective and how your frame of reference can entirely change your outlook on a situation. Needless to say, no matter how I look at this situation, I feel totally blessed and ready for hard work and did I mention excited, yeah totally excited! Below are the wonderful comments that Monica left on my entry letting me know she wanted me to be on her team.
“I SO WANT YOU!!!!!
Okay, you know I generally don’t read MG, but I LOVED this one, and I could totally picture my 10yo reading this book!! He’d devour it, and I know his tastes. You had me at: “They aren’t obsessed with rescuing exotic animals – they’re busy saving monsters.” And from that line on, it just turned better! And btw, I love Tertulius for a monster name–I think it’s cute.
Like the other entries I’ve chosen, I have a few nitpicks, I think, but nothing huge.
So, I think this was AWESOME and I’d LOVE to have THE FAMILY VYGIL on my team!!!”
