Contests

I entered some of my work in the Alabama Media Professionals communication contest, and tomorrow they announce the winners at a luncheon at Samford University.
The group has a lot of really good writers, so I'm not getting my hopes up. Some of the people in the group write regularly for national magazines. Others have written successful novels.
My friend Dale who won first place last year has some work entered this year. 
I know writing is not a competition, but I think everyone has a tendency to seek validation. I think that's why we all enjoy comments from other writers on our blogs.
When you're not in it for the money, a little encouragement goes a long way. 
So, tomorrow evening I'll let you know, one way or the other.
