Writers of the Future Silver Honorable Mention

This is a first.

The story I entered in the second quarter 2016 Writers of the Future Contest received a Silver Honorable Mention, which means it fell somewhere between Honorable Mention and Semi-Finalist. I’ve had both of those before, but never the in-between.

I’m a bit surprised that this story did that well. My first quarter story was more fun to write. But I didn’t think either of them were really WOTF fare.

This one is a rather quiet story —  a very personal story, with stakes that are important for the protagonist but not for the universe.  Which is the sort of story I find interesting to read, but rather more literary than WOTF-winning stories usually are. Still, I’m glad it got noticed.

One of these days, I’m hoping to hit the sweet spot and get a finalist nod.

On another note, I expect to have some good news to announce shortly. Stay tuned.
