Holy schnikes doesn’t really sound like a verbose title that would be written by a Pushcart Prize nominee, but it is.
I know that thousands of stories, most of which probably far outshine mine, were nominated and I honestly think I have a 0% chance of winning, but I am incredibly excited to be nominated.
I’m still reeling that anyone found my writing publishable, so learning that an editor thought I was one of their six best pieces of the year totally makes my day.
It’ll be months yet until I learn that I for sure didn’t win, in the meantime, I’ll just be telling everyone I know.
Oh yeah, and I should probably do my NaNoWriMo words for the day.
