Hello my wonderful readers!
I have been only posting passively on my website for the past few months. I’d use a few valid and invalid excuses for that, but right now I come bearing exciting news.
During the month of August, I participated in the Fall Short Story Writing Contest conducted by Short Fiction Break in association with The Write Practice. The theme for the contest was Boundless – If your characters are Boundless, what would they do?
The participants had to submit a 1500 words short story based on the theme by Monday, August 24, 2020. After much procrastination, I finally submitted my story on the deadline.
My story is titled Unbound and is about a young immigrant girl named Laila and one life-altering decision she had to make.
While the judges are still deliberating on the three winning entries, the readers were asked to vote for the Reader’s Choice Award. I am tremendously happy to announce that yours truly has won the Reader’s Choice Award.
Words cannot describe the happiness and gratitude that I feel (ironic for a writer, I know!). I am grateful to all my followers on social media, all the readers on The Write Practice and Short Fiction Break, and my family and friends who voted for my story.
