I don't think I've ever been so happy to report this particular result in all the time I have been entering the Writers of the Future contest: Rejection! Yes, I'm happy that my story was form rejected. When I opened my e-mail and read the "your story didn't place," it came as a relief, and I have none of the usual jealousy of those who are finalists. I'm happy for them and am thanking my good luck that I'm not dealing with that pressure this time around.
So, in 20 quarters of entering:
Silver honorable mention: 1
Honorable mention: 10
