A few weeks ago I posted about having a piece of flash fiction longlisted in the Pulp Literature Bumblebee Flash Fiction contest. I'm pleased to announce that my story went on to be runner-up and will be published in an upcoming issue of the magazine. Getting this good news was exactly the encouragement I needed to power through a novella I've been working on since Christmas, and, more importantly, it's a reminder that the writer's journey is exactly that: a journey. Every step I take forward is progress. Every story I finish hones my craft. I plan to be writing for a long time yet, and it's okay to enjoy the journey. Maybe stop and smell the roses.


Just watch out for bumblebees.
