  1. I’m amazed at the open doors available for young writers today. When I was a kid (Internet, what was that?) we didn’t have these opoortunities. I loved to write, but the only submissions I had were to my junior high English teachers. I remember we did have an electric type writer in the house.

    Thanks for all you do with our youth.

  2. Dallas, you’re an inspiration to young (and old) people everywhere!

    Great post, Heidi!

  3. You are amazing. What wonderful things you are doing. Wish you were around when I was young.
    Keep up the good work
    Martha

  4. Thank you all SO much for your kind words! And thank you Heidi for this wonderful post!

    Always,
    Dallas 🙂

  5. I agree. What a wonderful advantage you are offering young people with all your hard work. It must be very gratifying. Nice post. I enjoyed reading it.

  6. Dallas, you’re an inspiration to all of us!!

  7. Thank you everyone!

  8. Dallas, you’re an amazing young woman and an inspiration!

  9. Wow!! And only twenty-two. I begin to seriously think of writing at about thirty-two and then not with any confidence at all. That took at least another ten years. You’re away ahead in the game. Thanks Heidi for posting this story of this on-the-go girl. Eunie
