Aofie's Kiss, Wall of Never Doubt, Writer's Digest 80th Annual Writing Competition

"The Wall of Never Doubt" wins big!

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.

Go hooker!(See this post for explanation)

  1. So, so happy for you and your hooker, Erin! Such wonderful timing too. The title is mysterious and I can't wait to read the tale in Aoife's Kiss. ps. I can totally relate to rejection slips telling you to make a noose and hang yourself on it. If only the noose would hold! Gah.


  2. Thanks everyone!Linda, it does feel FABU, almost not real.Lily, I'd love for you to read some of my rejection letters…it's like, couldn't you have given me a free noose instead of making me make my own and failing at that too! : )Angel, Ha! Yes, that one worked hard and made my muse very proud.Thanks for stopping by Chandara and Ant – cheers with a porter!
