Hello everyone,

 

I just signed up. My passion for writing lay on the back burner for many years. A few of my stories have been submitted to Chicken Soup for the Soul, as they accept submissions from unpublished writers. I am working on paring down excess words, and hope to receive a response in the not too distant future.

 

My response to an article in our local paper was published on-line, despite the editor's insistence they would not be publishing any more letters on that subject (Abbotsford Public Schools no longer permitted to collect Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes).

Welcome to our writing family, Connie. Glad you joined us. That's too bad about shoe boxes being cancelled. You'll find plenty of help, support, and encouragement around here, so roam around and make yourself at home. Blessings on your writing! :D

Thanks so much, jonjovi! When I was a (very) ☺️ small child, a man from my church drove a car just like yours. It was fairly new then. I loved that car!

On Saturday I attended my nephew's wedding. Here in British Columbia one must maintain physical distance, we are permitted to attend outdoor gatherings of up to fifty people. It rained all week, but the sun shone bright that day.

 

A guest list of three hundred was paired down to fifty. His cousins living nearby, and relatives overseas could not attend. When I e-mailed a friend about wearing my best summer dress, and having to use an outhouse, she thought it was hilarious.

 

I took her comments and ran with them, creating a six hundred word Chicken Soup for the Soul story, due at the end of October.

I wrote this in response to what I read, but then it would not let me post, for whatever reason. Now I cannot find it, so I will post it here, and try again another day.

 

I thought the competition began after one becomes a big name writer. I have submitted so many stories to Chicken Soup for the Soul, yet feel no jealousy towards others who have been published. I believe my time will come. My regret is in not having pursued this passion sooner, but I was so focused on problems life invariably sends our way. Still, it is better late than never.

 

I have learned so much just in the past couple of weeks from reading Jerry Jenkins' articles. I sat down and pared one-hundred words off the 2,400 word children's book I am currently writing. Every story I have ever written can be improved upon, and then re-submitted at another time, another date. Writing fills me with joy, and hope,

Connie, I don't know why it wouldn't let you post that in the other thread. I tried moving your comment but it didn't work. You might want to copy this and try posting in the other thread again.
