I'm so disappointed. Especially considering that I didn't care for last years winners so very much. I really hoped I had a shot, at least at a finalist position. But nope.
On the bright side, I couldn't sit in watch of the UPS truck all day yesterday without something in front of me and I pent my time searching through listings in the Children's Writers and Illustrators Guide and I think I have a couple of places that sound like a good match.
I always maintain hope when I lose something that God "allowed" it so that I could actually make money from it someday instead of being published for free (and hoping for the name recognition associated with said publishing).
A girl can dream. You never know.
