One of the very first pieces that I sold was a piece called “Ocean Glass”. It was the August 2008 Whidbey Island MFA Student Choice Award winner. (Long name, I know. That just makes it more awesome.) Now it’s exactly a year later, and guess what?? I’m now the August 2009 WIMFASCA winner with a piece called “Water Boy”. Because apparently I have a thing with boys and water. No surprises there.
I think that I’ve come a long way in a year. I learned more about markets and submitting. I wrote, edited, and am shopping around a new novel. It’s been a productive year, and I really enjoyed it. Rock on!!
So hooray! You can read “Water Boy” here.
And I need to check out whether or not contests qualify for HWA. So…possibly?
