I learned about the contest a few days before the deadline, but knew right away I would enter. The biggest reason? FEEDBACK.
It’s not often a writer gets valuable feedback from an editor. So I’m told. The truth is, I don’t think I’ve ever submitted anything to a contest in my adult life. Shame on me.
Proverbs 31 Ministries, through COMPEL, their amazing writer’s training ministry, hoped to give each writer editorial feedback.
So when I opened the email during the middle of a school-at-home Wednesday, and it said ~ Angela, you won, as well as a couple paragraphs of positive feedback from the editor, I could not stop crying.
My kids sat there, confused.
Mom, what’s wrong?…But isn’t this a good thing, Mom?…I think this is a good thing!
Have a beautiful end-of-October weekend!
