I would like to give thanks to the Texas Writers Journal for publishing my short story, The Great Television Debate in their January 2016 1st Quarter Edition. I would also like to encourage Texas writers to submit to this wonderful journal (I believe you do have to live in this state to do so), but there could be similar state organizations for writers who are not from here (worth a search). This is actually the first non-fiction piece that I have ever had published. If anyone works for an organization that receives this journal, I would appreciate your vote (if you are so inclined), or a vote for any of the talented writers that they selected as finalists.
In other news, this was my first day back to work in 2 1/2 weeks from being off for school winter break. My first assignment was pre-school, and I was actually in such a mental fog that I wore my house shoes to work. Imagine my surprise when I went to do jumping jacks with the kids to not only discover that my shoes had no backs, but truly conflicted with my prim and proper English teacher attire. Kids didn’t notice though, actually nobody noticed. Smile.
