Flash fiction FTW: The Good News #amwriting #MondayMotivation

Good news! My flash fiction was again honored by Wow! Women on Writing in their Summer ’17 contest, and named among the Top Ten best stories.

It was aptly titled The Good News. (<Insert cheesing emoji>) You can read my interview here, and learn more about my thought process. One of the things I highlight is that it took me about two years to finesse. Off and on, editing, then setting it aside, then editing with coffee, then with wine, over about two years. I’m especially proud of this win because I didn’t quit. Throughout this period, I felt like there was some literary gold to be mined (okay, definitely flattering myself here, but you know what I mean), and kept going until I found some version I liked. I’m just glad literary agent Quressa Robinson and the Wow! slush team agreed!
