Writers of the Future Honerable Mention!

September 19, 2011

I am so stoked I can finally tell you guys about this. I submitted a SCI-FI story to Writers of the Future and received an honorable mention!

Honorable Mentions:

Matthew Mayner of Idaho

This is the coolest thing that has happened in my writing career so far.

I know this isn’t just a “thanks for submitting” award, because my first story that I submitted didn’t get one.

They’re going to send me a certificate in the mail and everything. Sweet!

I know it’s not the same as winning but if my story “Battlefield Pickup” was trash I know I wouldn’t have gotten an honorable mention.

So without further ado, here’s “Battlefield Pickup.”
