Midlife collage story accepted
« on: February 01, 2014, 08:41 PM »
This Monday, February 3, 2014, my story "Found in the Snow" will be put on www.midlifecollage.com as an entry in their weekly contest.  The website has five new true stories about and from people in the midlfe 40's and above for people to read and comment on each week.  Thought you'd enjoy reading some of the stories or even contributing.   :snowmanjump:

That was a lovely story ... and the moment you threw the snowball at the window was the best! Reconciliation is sweet, no?

Thanks for your comments mrh, dinalapomy101, B. Eflin, Audrey, and Vijaya.

Glad that you enjoyed the Vijaya, and yes getting tension worked out does always make one feel better especially when everyone feels the same.

Nice to hear from you Audrey, Hope all is well in Fla., and would like to see you when you come back to PA.  Maybe I'll see you at the St. David's writing conference in April.   :frosty:

I plan on being there Jen...they put together a great one day conference. Hopefully, we will be home and settled in by then.
