View Full Version : Dream Come True Op!

Last night I was invited to be a Blue Pencil Mentor at the 2014 Ontario Writers' Conference! This is an honor in SO many ways.

When I first came to AW, I was a loud blather mouth...an online pull-the-cord-in-its-back-and-watch-it-talk doll. Only...I was the one pulling the cord. Post before you think. And in meatspace I was sickeningly shy.

Even a year ago, I could not have taken this invitation...as I did not have the confidence and self-esteem to follow through with it.

In healing, we discover who we really are. (-: I have my third opportunity to teach in a span of about 6 months. The first two went wonderfully. This invitation is kind of the pièce de résistance. This is one of the most awesome accomplishments I could have imagined. I'll tell you right now, it was never a goal. I never would have thought myself worthy of it to allow myself to imagine it a goal.

Anyway. I've gone on long enough. I just feel this blossoming and I'm excited.

Here's what I had to say about it this morning! (http://kevintcraig.wordpress.com/2013/11/12/owc2014/)

Hooray for healing! Congrats on the accomplishment!
