So I got a voicemail on my cell phone this morning. "Hello, Ben, this is Joni from Writers of the Future. I have really good news for you, and it's not honorable mention. It's better. So call me back."
Always a good sign!
I called back, and apparently I'm a finalist! Yay!
In a month we'll get the final results--whether I actually place, or just stop as a finalist.
