Miss Golda's Words

My contributor's copy of  The Mayo Review arrived today.  It contains my fiction piece, Boxed Up, Put Away. 

The Mayo Review is published annually by Texas A&M University-Commerce Department of Literature and Languages.

As I look at my work alongside those of PhD candidates and English professors who teach creative writing, I am reminded of a statement my high school English teacher once made:
"Boys and girls, if you have talent, and you work at it hard enough, anything is possible."
I paid little attention to Miss Golda's words back then.  But they ring loud and clear to me today.

Honestly, I would put your work beside theirs any day. Your writing is like a prayer.

That is one of the nicest things anyone has ever said about my writing. Thank you, Derrick!
