The first batch of Honorable Mentions is up at the Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contest. I’m not on it, which I take as good news. Further, I don’t recognize any of the honorees from my old Forum days.
If your name is there, congratulations! Reaching the HM mark is a landmark event in your writing career. To those that feel perpetually stuck on the HM list (like me,) have some patience. The game is getting harder because more great writers are entering the contest. Read the annual anthology, and study what those writers did. Learn, grow, and continue writing. Your day will come!
