Bit by Bit

Today is just bits of news.

First, my story "The Gift," which appeared in the November issue of Digital Dragon Magazine , was voted into their "Best Of" anthology. The anthology will be available later this year (the exact publication date has not been determined yet), and the stories were voted on by readers. I'm happy to say that "The Gift" tied for the most number of votes! I'll keep ya'll updated as I hear more on the progress.

Second, I was interviewed a second time by the Tampa Tribune (Brandon News and Tribune section) the other day. The first time was in January because I was speaking at a local writers group. (If you'd like to read the first interview, you can find it online here.) This time, it's because of the release of The Ultimate Christian Living anthology, in which I have two stories. I'll post as soon as the new interview is up--there will be an online version of the article.

And last, I'm gonna throw in a Notebook Nugget. This is from an article my sis-in-law showed me. I wish I could remember the writer's name so I could give her credit! She was talking about striving for her dreams and how she was barraged by advice that she didn't always agree with. She said you should always ask yourself, "Do I want the life of the person who's giving me advice?"

Congrats! That's wonderful news.

Also, that question is pretty profound. I'll be using that for myself in the future. Thanks!
