Erma Bombeck Writing Contest – Honorable Mention

Good news on the humor-writing front. I received an honorable Mention in this year’s #Erma #Bombeck Writing Competition. Here’s the link to my entry. The contest had a humor and a human-interest category. This piece, about memories of my mother, is a bit more reflective than flat-out silly. So, I opted for the human interest category.

I’m going to attend the 2020 Erma Bombeck Conference in Dayton, and I’m looking forward to meeting the judges and winners during the awards ceremony. I’ll be there in early April, and I’ll be giving you all a rundown on the event.

Stay tuned, and now back to writing. 🙂
