I while ago I wrote about going back to school.
It wasn't something I had hoped to do... after all I earned a degree many years ago.
My daughter signed me up for a class at the local community college.
I blogged about the experience here: I took my daughter to school.
Well, one of my assignments was entered into a contest.
It's a story I reluctantly shared here: There is a bridge.
I just received a letter informing me that I won second place in the personal essay category.
Entries came from a variety of universities in the Maricopa County Community College system.
This is a collection of ten Arizona universities with over 250,000 enrolled students.
Wow... that's somewhat awesome... but I'm guessing only a very small fraction were in the contest.
They're planning a banquet and we'll be reading our entries.
Plus, it seems, I'll be coming into some money.
Not a whole lot- but hey... I'm now a professional writer!
it's a stretch.
