“The Old Man”

OMG! I have been so wrapped up in everything going on at home with the kids that I haven’t checked on my Fanstory site in a few days. My poem “The Old Man” won second place in the “Faith” contest! ( ) I was so excited I cried!

  2. Thanks Lauri. That is a big site and lots of people enter those contests because the winner takes home a $100 gift card. I was extremely happy to take second place!

    • Yeah… a $100 gift card would be pretty cool (I’d opt for the Amazon choice) but recognition is still pretty awesome, too. I bet you could get some mileage out of it.

      • Well that would be nice Jak. Right now I have pretty much put writing on hold. I’ve been too busy readjusting my life to having kids again. However, once I start back I will be loaded up with stuff to write about! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Kzinti. I’m glad you liked it. I didn’t repost it because most folks had read it so I appreciate you taking the time to go read it. I’ve really enjoyed writing the last couple of years. I’m thinking maybe God thought I needed a bunch of new stuff to write about so he sent me these kids! πŸ™‚

  4. Good for you! That is awesome!! The recognition is nice, and so is the money. Just knowing that you can touch people with your writing must mean a lot, too.

    • Thanks CbD. Yes, the recognition is nice. The money is not “real” money, (unless you win first place), it is just for use on the site but that is great because you use it to promote your work there. So I’m set up nicely for the next thing I write and post. But you are so right, the best thing is knowing that I have been able to touch people in any way. I love posting a new poem on there and reading the comments when they are positive and I got many wonderful comments on that piece. That was truly awesome.
