Hi! My name is Anna Marie Carlson and here's my updated biography as of January 20, 2021. I'm very appreciative of the anonymous donor that paid for a year's subscription to Writing.Com last year and I also received an extended membership for three months from a donor(s). Thank you. I've been a member for 1 year and nine months now. I received 31 Merit Badges (8 48-Hour Media Merit Badges). The reviews I've been getting gives me encouragement to keep writing. I've earned an Awardicon, which is a real honor; the reviews have been well received. I plan to start the new year 2021 with good thoughts about getting a book published.
