"17 Facts About Angels"

.

Hooray for me.

I received an honorable mention from the Irreantum Fiction Contest, and two judges have contacted me saying I made judges cry. (Frankly, I think making Angela Hallstrom cry is a good life goal. So let's add that to my list and then check it off.)

Goldberg!

I like James Goldberg and I think he's an incredible writer. But the rules of engagement require that I now treat him as an enemy.

Karen!

My friend Karen Rosenbaum picked up some prize money as well. I first met her when she edited my story "The Widower" for Dialogue. I've since moved into her ward which, I suspect, makes our ward the best represented in the Irreantum contest. Berkeley Ward pride! Yay!

  4. Congrats!

    And both Darlene Young and I attended that same ward in the late '90s so counting alumni, it's a powerhouse of Mormon Letters.
