Unbound – Reader’s Choice Award Winner

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.

Unbound is published on Short Fiction Break‘s front page or you can Click HERE to directly go the Story. I would love for you to read it and leave me a comment.
