Cat Writers’ Association Annual Contest
I’ve entered almost every year, from a single book to sometimes several articles. Writers have prolific years, and other times we don’t have as much published. Sometimes I win, other times I don’t. This year some of my favorite pieces got no mention, and I even had a piece disqualified. *s* And that’s fine, because I trust the judges. Besides, everyone who enters has already won because their work got published. When I first started, I could have papered my walls with all the rejection letters.
It’s more fun and rewarding to receive recognition from colleagues, of course. That tells us we’re on the right track, and our efforts matter. This year, I didn’t have a book to enter but wrote a bunch of content for my blog and for clients’ sites. I learned that seven (!!!) of my entries earned the coveted Certificate of Excellence Award. Can you hear me purring? That’s a personal best! I’ve included the links to the articles below—just CLICK on the certificate picture—if anyone wants to take a look. I’ll find out later if any of them also won a Muse Medallion.
I love hearing from you, so please share comments and questions. Do you have an ASK AMY question you’d like answered? Do you have a new kitten and need answers?
