And the winner is...

Not me.

I hope you're not shocked to hear that the finalist list for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Literary Awards is out and I (or rather the story I submitted) am not on it.

It's usually hard for me to know exactly how to take that sort of thing. Should I submit a different kind of story another year, or more stories overall? Should I carry a lucky penny with me on a daily basis? Should I buy more chocolate?

But today, it's not hard at all. The meaning of not making the finalist list is: keep knitting. For a little longer, at least.

It's been one of those days for both of us. My guess is that chocolate will fill the bill. But in the meantime, keep knitting and writing- it'll happen!

Meh. You have an amazing gift for writing short stories, and one of these days that will be fully appreciated. I have faith.
Meanwhile, pass the choccies.
