Writers of the Future Quarter 1

This quarter: Honorable mention. Including my silver honorable mention, which seems to be a category that no longer exists, I now have an even dozen HMs. I don't know whether to be proud of that rather dubious accomplishment or go bang my head on a desk. I am in the middle of reading the most recent Writers of the Future anthology, and I can see how this story doesn't fit the style of the stories that are winning. It's a good story, but in this case, I sent it to the wrong editor. Oh well. It happens. A lot.

In 21 quarters of entering Writers of the Future:
  • Finalist: 1
  • Semi-finalist: 1
  • Silver honorable mention: 1
  • Honorable mention: 11
  • Rejection: 7
