Folks, I’ve made it. I have arrived. 🙂
Well, that’s more or less what one of my writer friends (Micki, I’m looking at you) tweeted out; “You know you’ve made it when
@Janet_Reid offers a contest in your honor!”
And yes, indeed Ms. Janet, NYC literary agent extraordinaire and Director of Literary Services at New Leaf Literary and Media, Inc., is doing just that. There is a Flash Fiction contest this weekend in honor of THE EDUCATION OF DIXIE DUPREE’s Next Indie Pick selection and the fact that the book is soon to be released! (only a month away!)
For about five years, I’ve participated in these contests. I’ve won some, had numerous finalist mentions, long list mentions, and several special recognition mentions. The competition is fierce because the writers who hang out there are some of the best I know. They have 100 words (the word limit for these FF contests) to spin a story that incorporates a beginning, middle and end. Some of the entries from past contests have taken my breath away, made me laugh, or made me sit in awe, while wondering how did they do that?
The prize? Well, a copy of THE EDUCATION OF DIXIE DUPREE – of course!
Good luck, y’all! I can’t wait to read your entries!
