I managed to take second place in the annual Funds for Writers Contest--a huge step for me because I usually never win contests. I got some writing software and enough money to buy a stash of chocolate!

Also, I'm in the 2009 Bylines calendar--this might be my favorite thing so far; they published mine with a picture of a fake goat! Submissions are open until Feb. 1 for the 2010 calendar in case any of you talented folks are interested. Submissions can't exceed 300 words for a paragraph about the writing life and your bio.(sylvia@bylinescalendar.com)

Amy, I'm so happy for you. You can't beat a stash of chocolate. What kind of writing software did you get? Very cool.
