By my calculations, it's time to unplug again. I know I just got back, but I didn't spend any time writing/thinking about this blog...when I'm overseas, I'm mentally all there. Now it's Sunday night, I'm watching the Survivor finale, and have a very full, busy week ahead of me.
So, I'll be around this week... I'll be on your blogs (for those of you who don't unplug) as much as I can be.
But here's some news!
Well...the Genesis results are back and my name wasn't on the list. Definitely disappointing, but it's okay. I'm looking forward to seeing the comments for my entry and seeing what I can do to improve my story. To all of you who finaled, congratulations!
Second, I'm published again! My nonfiction article "Confessions from a Christian" appears in the May issue of Susie magazine. I have to say, it is weird seeing it. I wrote it so long ago--back when I was in India spring of 2009--and I feel like I've lived several lifetimes since then. Also, I don't get to hide behind the title of "fiction". This is a true account of my battle with anxiety. There, I said it. My prayer is that it helps someone who reads it... and that hope is greater than me keeping this secret to myself.
My article is the first one in the mag and sits very close to a short story by Jenny B. Jones. That definitely gave me a thrill! Check it out if you get a chance!
Anywho... have a great week! See y'all Monday!
