Well, I hope I am wiser and sadder about this year about my chances in the Florida Writers' Association's Royal Palm Literary Awards.
This time I shan't get my hopes up too high. I will remain even-keeled well past any Finalist standing(s) I might earn.
I am putting in for more entries this year. Not only an unpublished Short Story submission, but also a Published Short Story (I shouldn't say anything until later which it is), and also a NEW category they are offering in the Non-Fiction category: Short Non-Fiction covering articles and BLOGS (oh, yeah, I have one of those).
We'll see how my year goes. Wish my stories luck, peeps.
