I know this is coming a little late (it was announced in October of last year), but I realize that with this blog I set out to capture the ups and downs of the writer's life and have so far seemed to focus only on the downs. Well, this is definitely an up! Two of my short stories placed #31 and #33 in the Writer's Digest Annual Short Story competition in the Literary/Mainstream category.
Now on to the next adventure! Trying to get another story finished by August 31st to enter it into the Glimmer Train's contest for the Short Story Award for New Writers.
