…I’m going to go ahead and “squee” over an email I got yesterday.
Apparently my short story “Thirty Nine” has received an “honorable mention” for the 3rd quarter of the Writers of the Future Contest.
<insert high-pitched ‘squee’ a la anime schoolgirl here>
Now, the story will not be published but I will be getting a shiny certificate in the mail and a mention on their blog.
Not a bad little ego boost. I’ve been in a writerly funk of late and this helps a bit.
I’ll be sure and post my certificate when I get it in my hot little hands.
