Okay, I’m not someone who believes the cliché, “no news is good news.” It’s been 57 days–or 8 weeks and 1 day–since I learned I was a finalist in the Writers and Future Contest. Judging has never taken this long for any other contest quarter. Even if Author Services is working on the 25th Anniversary Coffee Table Book, the actual contest judges are not. So I assume they have finished their judging. I also have to believe that Joni knows who’s won and is held up from posting the list because she cannot contact one of the winners.
It’s a pity. At first, I didn’t think my story was that strong. Now, I’m sad that the judges didn’t think it was stronger.
