Middleport, New York (PressExposure) October 23, 2006 -- Mary Fagan was named a Semi-Finalist in HumorPress.com's "America's Funniest Humor!" Writing Contest for August/September 2006.
For her accomplishment, Fagan earned publication online and in print. Her entry, "Store Wars: Attack of the Calzones," is a humorous account of the challenges of a typical trip to the grocery store that anyone can relate to, especially parents with children in tow.
"It's easy to come up with funny lines when you are around children," she says. "They have provided me with so many lighter moments that I decided to spread them around on the web."
"Store Wars: Attack of the Calzones" will be featured in HumorPress.com's online Humor Showcase until publication of the October/November contest results. It will also appear in an upcoming print edition of "America's Funniest Humor!" published by HumorPress.com.
"It is an honor to have one of my stories chosen by Humor Press for publication, especially because there are so many talented writers who submit their work in this competition. The best part is, I enjoy writing them as much as I enjoy seeing them get published," says Fagan.
More of Fagan's humorous parenting stories and life observations are also featured online at motherwise.us. The Motherwise website also hosts humorous short stories submitted by writers for online publication. Website readers determine the winner by voting for their favorite from the short stories featured in the online parenting humor competition each month.
