    A couple of months ago I sent in a story called "Home" that I wrote to the AjPHA short story contest. Yesterday I got a call from them telling me that I won! I'm so excited!!! [​IMG] My story will be published in the APHA magazine in the spring. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    That is so cool! Congrats!!!! [​IMG] Do you get a prize other than it getting published? My mom told me with all the books I read, I should try writing one. I am a much better reader than a writer, so what a great thing to be able to do!
