On Its Way

Three minutes ago I bought the stamp, put it on the large manila envelope and dropped it into the mail slot.

My Oregon Literary Fellowship application is on its way.

With three copies of the application, three copies of the Women Writers Fellowship addendum, and three copies of 20 pages (the intro and three chapters) from my memoir. All collated according to instructions and paper-clipped together.

Fly, application, into the hands of the judges.

If nothing else, I got a good sense of direction and intent for my work. Not quite at the "elevator speech" level - but concise and clear.
