At the Risk of Completely Jinxing Myself…

…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Now, the story will not be published but I will be getting a shiny certificate in the mail and a mention on their blog.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.

About Shedrick

I am a professional librarian and a part-time writer that's working to do that the other way around. I currently live in North Texas in the lovely city of Denton (“The Home of Happiness“) with my lovely wife and the obligatory demon-spawn cats. When not writing, gaming, or watching cheezy kung-fu flicks, I can sometimes be found in a pub (or the American equivalent) enjoying a fine brew.

      Thank you! I can’t post the story on the website because I’m still trying to sell it–and if I post it on the website it is counted as “previously published” and therefore harder to sell. I’ll have to bring you or send you a copy of the draft.
