I entered the Katherine Ann Porter Prize in Short Fiction today.
My young adult novel clocks in at just under 50,000 words so I qualified for the novella entry. I will have to wait until January to find out if I won or not. That feels so far away.
Last year I entered the American Christian Fiction Writers Genesis contest for unpublished novels. I made the semi-finals in that. That was very gratifying. Since then, I’ve spent a lot of time shaping up the book. We’ll see what happens next.
