Earlier this month, I wrote about how I really needed something good to happen.
Well, it did! A few weeks ago, I entered an essay writing contest. The contest is sponsored by Notes and Words, a literary and music event in support of Children's Hospital Oakland.
I worked the piece for a long time. I solicited feedback from people who are good at giving feedback, including my dad who used to edit my essays in school and sometimes made me cry. He was a tough critic.
This time, I made him cry.
And yesterday, I found out I was selected to be a semi-finalist!
I am really proud of this piece and I am so excited I can finally share it with you. Five semi-finalists will be chosen by a combination of votes and judges' assessments. And I'd really, really appreciate it if you would vote for my piece!
It is called Lost, and you can vote for it by liking the essay on the Facebook page.
Just go HERE and click "like!"
I'd be forever grateful.
