“What, I can’t believe it!”

That was my first reaction when I came online this morning and a dear friend, a Children’s Book Hub member, informed me, I had won a random prize for my entry in the third and final, Writers’ Platform Campaign.  Here is the entry I submitted…..https://thepatientdreamer.com/2011/10/23/third-platform-builder-campaign-challenge/   A show and tell, which I can honestly say is one of my weakest areas.  So it was made extra sweet to hear I had won in the Random Prize Awards.  The prize is a  Hardcover book: “Tales from China: World Favorite Fables” (first edition printing) edited by Steve Jackson and Mirando Sibo Paul and autographed by Miranda Paul, donated by Miranda Paul.  A Big thankyou to Miranda Paul.

I want to say that anyone who is seriously contemplating becoming a published writer should give Rachel ‘s campaign a go (see my blog roll on the side).  The amazing contacts, lovely friends, wonderful information, awesome interviews, and the knowledge you are not alone in any stage  of your writing, illustrating,  that you may be in, in your quest, and the inconquerable Rach herself, the judges, organizers who put so much time and effort in providing this mind blowing campaign is truely a credit to them and one that you should visit, to enjoy the fun we had.  Thankyou, a big thankyou.  To be allowed a chance to stretch and grow, discover what I could do, to receive such wonderful, kind, encouraging feedback is something I will remember for a very long, long time. 

Thanks again to all concerned and to all those who often visit my blog. You are awesome.

    I’m dreadfully late to the party, but congrats on your win!!! And how’s your PiBoIdMo month going?

    • Hi Susanna, no worries. I have had the internet go down on me a few times, so not able to post much. Thankyou for your wishes.
      My PiBoldMo is going okay so far. There have been times when for a couple of days no idea comes (mind you work gets in the way alot then) and then all of a sudden a couple of ideas spring to mind and I have to make a mad dash to write it down so I don’t forget. At the moment I am keeping up….. so all good so far! I am enjoying the contacts and some of the interesting blogs I love returning to such as yours. Very inspiring. Thanks for stopping by Susanna.
