I entered “Changestone” in Q4 for the Writers of the Future Contest. A wave of honorable mentions (top 10%) was just announced, and “Changestone” was among them. This makes the 5th honorable mention in a row from this contest. It’s nice to consistently avoid the straight rejection. I am still waiting for my skills to level up further though. Because so far, honorable mentions haven’t meant much in terms of actually finding publication.
Well, by “waiting” I mean studying, writing, and continuing to submit. Which means I need to get back to work on the story I’m submitting for Q1.
Never give up! Never surrender!
