Super excited to get my second Honorable Mention! Great indicator that I'm on the right track. Both Honorable Mentions have been for stories based on my novel in progress. Now I just need to finish it!
PS - I just bought David Farland's Namawrimo Writers Bundle in early November and it has been super super helpful for figuring out what was structurally wrong with the middle of my novel in progress. Highly recommend it if anyone is writing a novel.

I bought Dave's Story bundle last year. I watched each video at least 3 times and went through all the exercise. You're right, they are great!

Want me to look it over? (If it's under 10k)
I'm excited to have two other stories to read first, but they are both under 5k.
I tend to read in groups when I have some momentum.
Up to you!

2x Finalist
2x Semi
6x Silver
9x HM
1 of 6 SilverHM. 1 of 3 DSF: Short Stories. My Finalist #1 Finalist #2 coming soon in 4th & Starlight

Great News... After my (eternal) MPhil and PhD hiatus ... I've FINALLY! entered a story in this quarter. Yeah! And I am thrilled to have two prior HM's incorporated into my latest eBook on Amazon right now (I won't say what - it's not completely relevant). But I will say that that having HM's is an important aspect of writing confidence. Many of my HM's have been subsequently picked up by publishers worldwide. I would just say to those folk who wonder the merits of a 'generic HM grade' - that it is truly of value! So keep it up! Resubmit - aim for the Moon and beyond! It's a (quiet - solitary) journey... but worthy, and this site is the start...

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood... I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. Robert Frost (1915)
