News on my latest Writer’s of the Future entry March 28, 2012

Posted by Tom Wells in Introductions, News, Submissions.

Dear Entrant, 

Your story has now been judged and did not win or place in the 1st quarter.

Well, darn.  It’s a bit of a let down after having been sidetracked from writing so much lately.  It’s not the first time a story of mine has failed to place with the Writers of the Future contest, but it is the first rejection since my renewed effort at writing more began a little over a year ago.  Nothing to do but to send this one off to other markets while submitting my next entry and coming up with new stories.

Very big bummer, Tom. But a very good attitude you have!

Tom Wells - March 28, 2012

Thanks. Hope your news is better. Good luck!

I have a strong feeling it’s a Semi. It has the same strengths and same weaknesses as my last one. Probably too long, too.

A semi certainly sounds good to me about now. I’m thinking that at that level, the differences between semi and finalist has more to do with the subject of the story being a fit for what KD is looking for publication wise.
