I left home early this morning to spend the day in Maryland, and I came home tonight to this.
I had been in contact with Lydia about posting my 500 words from the contest, and I knew she was planning on explaining in detail why she chose my entry, but I had no idea she would have such positive things to say about it.
Lydia, I know I've repeated these words many times already the past couple days, but THANK YOU!
I also appreciate all the kind words in the comments both on her blog and on mine. It's great to meet all of you! Thanks to those who've joined me here... I'll put together some more information on Olympus Gate to share over the next few weeks. In the meantime I'll be popping over to your blogs—look forward to learning more about all of you!
Tonight I'm incredibly grateful for the online writing community—I've never been more glad to be part of such a great group.
