I’m not going to let it discourage me. After all, I felt as though it was a long shot in the first place. And not because of impostor syndrome or a lack of confidence. In this case, I am being a realist. There was a lot wrong with the story I submitted.
Between procrastination and being absurdly busy for the past few months, I finally finished my story for the Vocal+ Fiction Awards. Though, I’m not entirely sure they’re going to accept it. After all, I am a horror writer.
