Thank you, Amanda. I really appreciate your response. It's etched in stone now that I received a certified check for $250 from Catharsis Journal. It's really unbelievable considering that I never thought of myself as a writer. I was a musician on the NY scene, and along the way, I kept being pulled aside by people who wanted me to write for them. Catharsis wanted submissions on Creativity, And How It Influenced Your Life. My last line was, "In the past, I saw music everywhere. Now I see stories." A better ending might have been, "In the past I was a Musician who loved writing. Today I am a Writer who loves music."  (Shouldn't I take a course, or something?)

After a long period of silence, suddenly a flurry of responses, three, in fact.

1) Emily's Mysterious Disappearance will be published in Clever Magazine in their June issue.

2) The Piano Sale will be shown in the next issue of Yeah Write Review!

3) I won 2nd Place in a contest and will be in the first publication of Catharsis Journal in the Fall.

Please, somebody congratulate me before I pass out.

Suicide: Breaking Through

Today marks the seventh anniversary of my husband's funeral AND my cousin's suicide. I've learned the reason for suicide began long before my first attempt and, as it turns out, also is true for my cousin.

Hi, I just found this group and it suits my writing to a T. I'm also a member of the Blooming Late group. After working as a reporter and photojournalist for 35 years I retired and tried for two years to be retired, before going back to work as a reporter for a small newspaper connected to the Orange County Register. I also returned to school to complete my degree, and after 12 years, finally received my B.A. in creative nonfiction. I chose that degree when I fell in love with essay writing at Western Washington University. Now, I'm completing the first draft of a memoir, that was my major project and final senior project for graduation. I look forward to hearing and reading everyone's comments in this group. Aloha.

I spent 6 years crocheting a beautiful blanket after my second suicide attempt and learned what love is.
