So this past year I submitted a short story I wrote to Tuscany Press. Every year they have a contest, they accept short stories, novels, novellas and young adult stories. If you win this contest then you have the chance to have your work published. For the short stories they put them together in a collection of stories. Anyway, it’s pretty cool.
I submitted my story “The Boy”, and I didn’t win. I’ll admit I’m a little disappointed, but on the whole I’m excited. Which might seem crazy. But I know I can make my story even better than it was when I submitted it.
This has been a great learning experience! Someday my story will be published, today just isn’t that day.
