I like to attend our local chapter SCBWI meetings, especially when I have good news to share. So, after a few months' absence, I was finally able to attend. When they asked about good news, I raised my hand to announce a recent Highlights acceptance. But when I tried to stand up, I got trapped by the desk. I delivered my news half-crouched, and was so worried I would crash the folding desk that I didn't hear any of my applause. Sad!
