Writers of the Future, quarter 4

I crow my good news in Writers of the Future on my blog, so I suppose I should own up to the bad news, too. I received my fourth-ever straight rejection yesterday. Honestly, I'm scratching my head over this one. I'm the first to admit that my other three rejects were deserved. This one was not. It's quite possibly my best story to date, but for whatever reason, it rubbed the judge the wrong way. Here's hoping for better luck next quarter.

So, updating the tally in 12 consecutive quarters of entering Writers of the Future:
  • 1 semi-finalist
  • 1 silver honorable mention
  • 6 honorable mentions
  • 4 straight rejections
