(Raine, also laughing her ass off, because you probably thought you'd just sneak those through for feedback, yes?) :-D

I'm so happy for you!!

Jordan Summers said...

Congratulations!!! Yah!!! :D

Larissa said...

Congratulations!!! That's AWESOME!!!

Stephanie Bose said...

Congrats on all of the placings. Wonderful!!!

Jaye said...

Raine, you are soo right, that's exactly why I entered! lol.

Thanks, guys. I've literally wondered, off and on, over the past year, if maybe I should just give up. The writing just hasn't been coming easy. If nothing else, this just sort of makes it seem that the struggle is worth it. Onward and upward!

And thanks for popping over. I know you've all had your successes and turning points--big and small--and you know *exactly* where I'm coming from on this. ::grin::

anne frasier said...

Congrats, congrats, congrats!!!!!!!! This is wonderful news!! :-) You GO girl.

Jaye said...

Thank you, Anne, Danica, and SAW!

Anne, that's it. And you need that validation not from long time writing buddies/crit partners, since you know they're bias, they tend to like your work (that's why your cp'ing)or from friends/family because they like you and don't want hurt your feelings. Thier votes of confidence won't completely wipe away all the cobwebs of doubt in the same way a thumbs-up from someone with no vested interests in you or your writing, will do.

Oh, also want to thank the folks who sent their congrats privately, or on other sites/loops. :-)

The glow has muted a bit, now it's time for a last minute polish, and get some writing done.

Amie Stuart said...

Honey if there's one thing I know it's that you shouldn't quit. =) So sue me, of course I'm biased. I know talent when I see it *ggg*

Julie Cohen said...

Yup, talented is right.

Jaye said...

Lainey, thanks! I enjoyed your entry also, so major, major congrats for finalling also!

Cece & Julie. You guys are two tough broads. lol. Very talented, awesome fearless critiquers. Your judgements carry much weight with me, and I'm honoured to have your good opinion. :-)

and my verification word is: xdimstgo. lol. I guess I really 'must go' and get cracking with some writing.
