I wanted to wait until I had the certificate in hand

But I just can’t.

I found out today, my story, “A Simple Wager” was given honorable mention in the Writers of the Future contest for Q1.  While this is not winning the Kentucky Derby, it is the first prize I have received for my writing.  It is a tremendous feeling of validation which I am grateful for.

For those who are wondering, I wrote this story at Viable Paradise XIV.  I am tremendously excited to have won my first award.  I am going to keep entering.

Next up, Finalist…

Did I mention I am really happy?
