I didn’t plan on posting anything today but this can’t wait! Do you remember this blog post about this short story which I entered into the Booktrack contest? Well, I just found out today that my story is one of the top winners–Unearthed Magic, which is only about 300 words long, won a cash prize!!
DO YOU KNOW HOW EXCITED I AM????!!!!! I couldn’t believe it when I saw the list of winners, I kept thinking, “Did I really win? No way, this must be a mistake” until I got a private email with a private congratulations!
I’M ECSTATIC RIGHT NOW BECAUSE THIS MEANS SO MUCH TO ME. I CAN’T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I ACTUALLY WON SOMETHING. AND THIS IS TWICE AS SPECIAL BECAUSE I WON SOMETHING DOING WHAT I LOVE. PUBLISHING A STORY–BUT WITH MUSIC! SOMEWHERE IN THE WORLD, I AM A SUCCESS.
I’m bouncing off the walls over here; I just needed to pause to blog this about this so when I get frustrated with myself and my writing in the future, I can come back here and remember that I do have the capability to succeed because I did it today!
Of course I can’t end this without linking back to my story; so here it is! (remember, if it doesn’t work then you might need to open it on Google Chrome.) If you excuse me I’m going to run about my house before I explode here on my chair!
