The Second Publication

An Essay By Erin // 4/17/2011

My story, Planes, has been published in the Homeschool Literary Quarterly, the online magazine for homeschoolers that The Jolliest Time of the Year was published in. Upon reading my acceptance letter, my joy was immediate. I emitted an extremely girlish squeak, which made my brother mildly concerned for my mental health. It created even more concern whenever I proceeded to jump up in down first in my chair and then on my own feet, squealing mommymommymommymommymommy whilst I went to find (guess who?) my mother.

To say the least, being published for the second time was just as fantastic and thrilling as the first. 

If you would like to read said story (Planes by Erin Laine, in the Featured Sidebar. I might mention that it made my mother cry.) please go to www.homeschoolliterary.com 

Thank you, APers, who have encouraged my writing so very much!

WOW

Oh my gosh that was such a beautiful and moving story! I'm so suprised that you have written something so mature while being so young! It reminds me somewhat of when I started to write. Your writing is so riviting in this piece. I had all I could do to keep myself from crying! Keep up the absolutely amazing work! I know you definitely have a future in writing should you choose pursue it! God Bless!
