I am very pleased to announce that my short story, “The Wall of Never Doubt,” won 10th Place in the Genre Short Story category of the 80th Annual Writer’s Digest Short Story Competition! This couldn’t have come at a better time, as I’ve been in one of those long hauls with my writing, lots of rejections, very few acceptances. Persistence is the key, at least in the beginning. So if you are in a long haul with your writing, don’t stop, write more, and submit, submit, submit! You can only increase your chances of acceptances and/or wins in doing so.
Also, this story was accepted by Aoife’s Kiss and will be in the print June 2012 issue.
