Highfalutin ideas

Post by marshallwendy » Tue May 22, 2007 9:39 am

This was my first time entering the comp. too! I am so encouraged to receive a top 15 placing. Actually the title of my entry is ironic. I've been exploring writing in a more serious fashion, wondering if I just have 'highfalutin ideas' about my own ability, so it was SO encouraging to receive such nice comments from folk who read my story and a placing to boot - YAY!! PTL. Thanks everyone,
Wendy

The spacing is just one of those things that you learn to adjust, once you realize it does that. It's some kind of "translation" problem between most word processors and the posting system. :) I think everybody's had it happen at least once :)

Hey guys! Thanks for all the great comments on it. It's actually a reflection of the style in my up-and-coming historical novel. When it becomes an international best seller (LOL) I'll send y'all an autographed copy. :wink:

Well.... Ya gotta think big when you're God's kid!
