The Bad News is that my story, “Singularity Bar” came in second in The Iron Writer Challenge #116.
The Good News is, I have somehow advanced to the Summer Solstice Tournament anyway! I’ll be competing in the Preliminary Round as part of the Eric Carle Bracket, starting on June 25th, when the 4 story elements will be posted and the smack laid down.
I will then have 4 days to write a 500 word flash story using those 4 elements. Then, on July 2nd, all 10 stories (5 in my bracket, 5 in the other) will post for YOU to vote on! I’ve never won a Quarterly Tournament, so this could be my chance. More on this later, wish me luck!
