I finally heard back from Writer's of the Future. I'd entered the contest for the 1st quarter of 2014.
My short story, Finding Home won an honorable mention. That's good news, and bad news. Yeah, I wanted to win, but I'm mostly seeing this as a huge positive. After all, I learned that depending on the number of "good stories," 5-15% of the stories receive Honorable Mention. So, my writing is moving in the right direction.
This is also incentive to enter a stronger story the next quarter, and to keep working on my craft.
