Rats! Cut from the semifinalist stage (250 people down to 50 in this round, from an initial 5,000 entrants in my category). It was a good run while it lasted, and in a way it’s for the best — the waiting was killing me. I’ll just carry on submitting “Letting Go” and revising and submitting and working on something new and revising and hoping and submitting… etc. etc. etc. Best of luck to those who are still in the contest! Some fantastic excerpts to read.
