Well, I fought the good fight. The Midlife Collage weekly contest for July 8 is over. Sadly, I didn’t win but apparently was tied for first according to the editor’s comments on Monday July 15. Here’s the link to the winner’s circle, where I it appears I ran neck-in-neck with the winner. http://midlifecollage.com/winner-circle/
One thing I did learn about myself and my character. I worked hard to market myself, and I think I did a pretty good job of it. Makes me feel good.
When I do publish my inspirational essay and poetry collection with lyrical introductory photos of nature, family and beach scenes, I feel confident my voice will be heard via social media. During the contest, I relied heavily on facebook and twitter. My longtime friends, writers, and even newfound buddies came through for me giving me thumbs up, penning high quality comments, and even writing closing arguments.
So here’s to social media.
Maybe I am learning a thing or two.
