Lucille, that's awesome!!  I wrote an article about my cat also ("You Had Me At Meow!") and it's going to be published in Your Cat magazine (UK).  You should get your article published.

I just won a contest on Midlifecollage for my story—Robin's Mysterious Disappearance.

It's about my feral cat that was lost in my wall for 16 days. I guess you can consider it an Essay. Any congratulations? Any kind word will do.

If you didn't live a perfect, straight-laced, by-the-book lifestyle growing up, then how do you tell your kids they can't have the same "fun" you did?

"Submitting to “The Best American Series” made easy" by Adrienne Ross Scanlan is up at Alle Hall's blog, Remembering Childhood  ( Look for the 9/11/12 post.

I hope this helps other writers bring much deserved attention to their work.

I breastfed my son for 2.5 years before there were laws in place to support nursing mothers. I would be honored to write about my experience. I also have a special-needs daughter who I was unable to breastfeed because she was a preemie. My late husband was the family poet king and I do have a charming Christmas poem that will tug at your heart. Let me know if you're interested.

I'm interested in entering some of my writing in contests. Do any of you have a list of contests you like to enter and/or sites with good examples of winning entries for this type of writing?

No matter what genre your fiction falls into, we all have one thing in common, we have to populate our work with people.  This group is for discussing those characters who add life to our novels.
