Why I Am in a Very Good Mood

This has been a great week so far. Because I keep winning stuff.

First, I got an email on Sunday from Jon Sprunk telling me I won his photo contest and therefore will be sent a free copy of his third novel, Shadow's Master. (Will have to figure out how to balance that on with The Wheel of Time. I'm currently on book five of that one.) I'm very excited about this, though now I'll have to go buy books one and two to complete the collection (I rented them from the library because I'm cheap that way).

Second, I found out yesterday that I won the Murray City Literary Contest grand prize! I am ECSTATIC about this! I sent in my short story, "Piscis," back in February. I win $50 for placing first in my category (science fiction), and $400 toward a writing workshop of my choice. I will be going to David Farland's Million Dollar Outlines at the end of the month! I've really been wanting to take one of his classes.

And then tomorrow I get presents because it's my birthday. :D WIN.

Maybe I should start doing giveaways so I can spread the winning goodness....

  6. Wow! I'm curious how you heard about the Murray City prize? I'd never heard of it before, but it sounds awesome! :D Are there a lot of local contests out there I'm completely ignorant of?
