Writing News

Dear Mom,

For some reason, I wouldn’t allow myself to jump up and down when I received the news. Perhaps I was in shock—that and the fact I have a bum foot right now. No worries though, when the reality of it sets in, I’m sure you’ll hear me shouting all the way to heaven.

My story “Geoffrey” was accepted for publication in the Storm Country Anthology. You probably remember my worry over Geoffrey when that massive tornado hit Joplin.

I'm extremely grateful and honored to have my story included in this worthy cause (all proceeds from the anthology go toward buying books for the Joplin School District libraries to replace books lost by the tornado) and to be among top notch writers; friends and those I know of—Donna being one. You can check Donna’s blog that gives more details about this project and the other writers.

Just like Donna stated: special thanks to everyone involved in this awesome project!

  7. Hi Lynn,
    Congratulations. It is so awesome.
    I can't wait to read Geoffrey, and I hope you'll autograph my copy.
    And thanks for mentioning me. You are so sweet. Hope your foot is better soon.

  8. Hi Lynn,

    Wow! Congratulations. You worked hard to help find out where he was, and I look forward to reading your story and the others. This is so cool.

    I got your card and letter today ... thank you so much. You are such a blessing. I'm going to follow your example and hand write you back. I haven't done that for so long.
