on the grind

Fall ’15 #FlashFiction…WINNER #amwriting

Remember that tease from my last post? Something about flash fiction news? Well, here it is if you skipped over the headline and blindly clicked on this link.

I PLACED 4th!!!

Fourth, you say? Not 1st, 2nd, or 3rd?

Yes indeed, I placed 4th. Out of 250 + entries for WOW! Women on Writing’s Fall 2015 Flash Fiction contest!!!

I’m beyond elated and excited to share the news that I’ve been sitting on and biting my nails about since I got the initial email that I made the Top 45 and then the Top 10 while driving up the coast, moving to Oregon. Seriously, I couldn’t have asked for more encouraging news or results to get me settled into the Portland writer’s community with an extra bounce in my step.

You can read my entry, The Bataclan, here. And check out the rest of the top 10, and amazing picks for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places right here.

For anyone that’s struggling to finish their manuscript or the umpteenth revision of said manuscript, relax! Take a load off. Maybe try your hand at writing a fraction of that tome by exploring flash fiction. It’s been cathartic and refreshing for me at a time when I’m waiting on agent replies, uprooting my life, and struggling for long-narrative ideas, and I highly

highly

recommend it.
