Writing News

Finally, something worth writing about…

Fireside Fiction published the flash story I wrote in honor of Carrie Fisher. You can read “Feeding Mr. Whiskershere. Don’t forget your light saber.

My story “Seeding Tradition” did well in the Writers of the Future contest. I was a semi finalist for the third quarter of 2017.  The announcement is here. This one started with a writing prompt (thanks JPM) in the Codex Halloween contest many years ago. All it needs now is a home.

In the meantime, I’m still deep in the writing trenches working on my next Writers of the Future entry, two novelettes, brainstorming for the next Baen contest, and prep work to restart the novel as soon as those stories make it into submission. There’s always another story to write, always a story to improve. I hope I can share more with you soon.

Happy Reading, Happy Writing, and Be Well.

  1. Congrats! Very much enjoyed the story. Good luck with the rest of your writing.

  2. Nice, semi-finalist in WOTF! Always cool to get a critique, Dawn. I’d love to see what Dave said. : ) I’m on that quarter’s list too, but waaay further down. Conga rats on good writing! Win that contest!

    • Thanks, Moon. I’m eager to see what he’s got to say.

      • I’d be happy to swap with you sometime, say this Q? Perhaps, putting our heads together, we could both figure out how to win this thing. : )

        • Love to. I’m revising expanding that particular story. I’ll have time mid November to swap and brainstorm.

          • Great! As a semi-finalist (not sure if it’s your first) Dustin Adams might invite you to his special Finalists Forum, especially if you would be willing to post your critique. I think you’d find it most helpful…

            • I appreciate the invite — but I’m already there, thanks to a SF from KD Wentworth some years ago. Thanks for reaching out. 🙂 There’s a reason I’ve always liked the WOTF boards. Everyone is so supportive, when you’re down or when you’re succeeding at writing. ❤
