I also sent a story in to the Writers of the Future contest. With two stories sold in the whole universe so far, as far as the WotF contest is concerned, I can only sell one more story before I become ineligible for the contest.
Which I'm totally fine with on a lot of levels. I'd of course love to win the contest, but I won't hold back on sending out stories just so that I keep my eligibility, you know? That would be weird, and not in a good way.
Gee, I'm so calm posting this. When I got the email, I had so many exclamation points inside me I couldn't stay sitting down!
Oops. I guess they're still there. They're probably just tired.
