Honorable Mention/A Little Affirmation

So excited to get this affirmation as I journey further into fiction land… Today I learned that I received an honorable mention in the recent Glimmer Train short story contest, meaning my story ranked in the top five percent of the 1000+ submissions they received. The full list of honorable mentions is available here. Very grateful for a boost of confidence to keep sending this story out until it finds a good home.
