I got a very nice email from River Styx on Thursday saying that I had made it into the final round of judging for the Schlafly Micro-Brew Micro-Fiction Contest. It’s always nice to know when you are close as a writer even if you don’t win, so I’ll take finalist any day over all-out rejection. That said, I do think rejection is an important part of the submission process, and something we all have to face. On Facebook, I made a post celebrating my 210th rejection, and I really meant it.
Anyway, I wanted to say congratulations to the winner and runners-up for this contest. I’m looking forward to reading their work in River Styx!
