I’m Going to Enter Writers of the Future

At LTUE the awesome writing symposium held at BYU, several writers recommended entering the “Writers of the Future” contest.

One of these writers was Brad R Torgersen who won, and is published in volume 26. I talked to him at LTUE and he basically said to me, “You need to enter Writers of the Future yesterday!”

Well Brad, I’m working on it. I am taking a story I wrote some time ago, am rewriting it and expanding it. I think I’ll be able to turn it into a pretty good long, short story. 😀

Why would I expand a short story? Well two reasons, first the story wasn’t finished and second according to the Writers of the Future FAQ they want stories that are… “17,000 words or less.”

Which probably means they aren’t looking for 4000 word short stories. But who knows? I’m going to shoot for around 15,000 or so.

Wish me luck guys.

I’m probably going to need it.
