HOLY COW I'M SO EXCITED MY LITTLE PUDGY FINGERS ARE SHAKING!!!! I could hardly believe it when I got online and saw 11 new messages mostly from here....and I thought, "NO WAY!"
Am I a complete bum for being this psyched?!?!
Thanks so much to everyone who commented. I appreciate every word.
And a HUGE thank you to the judges. Wow. I'm still in shock. I think I'll call my mommy. And my husband. And I'll go get the kids out of school. And we'll have a big party!
Congrats to everyone who placed. I loved reading all your works. So much talent!
