I was thrilled to receive the news that my flash fiction story "Practice Terrible Acts of Cruelty and Senseless Acts of Loneliness" was an honorable mention in the WOW Fall Flash Fiction Contest judged by literary agent Rachel Brooks. Almost as nice as the mention was the feedback I received from the judge and editors, not to mention an Amazon gift card, which will go to sustaining a very serious and possibly dangerous reading habit (dangerous on my wallet, that is.)
As anyone knows who follows me on Twitter or Insta (ahem...hint, hint!), I am something of a book addict. I have a pretty long book wish list on my Amazon account, so I'm pretty damn excited about my gift card. Anyway, since I wrote the story last fall, I have gone back and rewritten parts of it. I'm tempted to publish the story here on my site, but because I've changed it a little I think I will re-submit it. It was definitely a confidence boost to hear that the judges liked it and found parts of it very funny. When (and if) it's ever published, I hope you'll enjoy it, too!
In the meantime, you can read the fabulous winning entries here.
Wish me luck!
