There is a site called Tiny Lights (http://www.tiny-lights.com)that publishes writing and essays. My father bugged me about it so I sent in a piece just to "shut him up". I heard back from the editor today that they are going to use it in a section called "Flash in the Pan". It is a piece about my daughter and my experience teaching her how to knit.

His response was, of course, "I told you so".

Published and about knitting!!!

Thanks everyone. I went to school to be a journalist but just burned out on it and so never completed my degree. I was not really suited to that style of writing and like writing more essay type things and poetry. My dad has been pushing me (I say that in the kindest way) and encouraging me to do something with my writing since I was a kid. I put it away when I became a mom and picked it up again after my marriage fell apart.
I have always really just written for myself so it astounds me that someone else would actually find value in my words.

OK, that was a long, rambling bit of nothing... Any way, I just wanted to say thanks...
