I entered my short story in the Writer’s Digest Popular Fiction Contest!
I’m really excited at the possibility of this story being published in a real-life magazine. The thought is just so euphoric. I don’t think I’ve ever been so proud or thrilled about something in my entire life.
I worked extremely hard on this story, and it wouldn’t be what it ended up being thanks to one of my closest friends looking it over and critiquing it. To be honest, having my story critiqued was one of my greatest fears, and I think I’ve moved past it (a little) due to her honest review.
So, do you guys have any stories in progress? Are you anxious about people reading your work? Have you entered a contest before, either sponsored by Writer’s Digest or some other organization?
