There’s a long-running writing contest called Writers of the Future. I’ve told myself that I would enter for 25 years, and last fall, thanks to incessant prodding encouragement from my friend Charles Anderson, I finally did.
Last week, my wife called and said I had received a manila envelope in the mail. It contained a WotF Honorable Mention certificate, along with a brief complimentary note from the contest coordinator. I’ve been told that because there are so many entrants, getting an Honorable Mention is quite an accomplishment.
I’m in good company, though. My friend Charles Anderson? He got one, too.
