Cinematic Short Story Contest Update!

I have Very Exciting News!

I mentioned in my first post of the year that I’d entered a Cinematic Short Story Contest, and I’m thrilled to announce I made it through the first round!! 😄

It’s so enthralling, and yet surreal, to see my name as a Quarter-Finalist! One of about 400 to be selected from over 1,400 submissions!

Regardless of whether I make it to the next round, it’s gratifying, and humbling, to get my story acknowledged and recognized.

While the excitement should fade by the end of the day, the now-polished and glowing pride will hopefully sustain my writing day tomorrow, and ideally mitigate any future disappointments (if we’re being realistic).
