It seems the judges over at the Pod and Planet Fiction Contest liked fractured little tale of an API leak. They awarded me the Grand Prize.
I mean, I am flattered beyond words, but I didn’t think I was on par with the great writers that I was up against. I thought for sure the crown would go to Rhavas again, I really did. Or if not him, Sugar. Or Drackarn. Or one of the many other amazing writers that add to the depth of an already immense universe of lore.
I write mostly just for my own enjoyment, and am very pleased that others enjoy my literary weavings as well. Maybe Cookie (@Cookie_Stein) is right, and I should start writing more.
Also a big thanks to my partner Raevynn Zara, and Arunis Genforge for the last minute editing help.
Thanks to Telegram Sam for all the hard work he puts in every year. I’m sure organizing an event like this isn’t easy.
And thanks to all the other writers in the contest. You guys are the reason I polish and rewrite until I’m sick of looking at the draft. Trying to write something half as compelling as the stuff the community puts out on a regular basis is a challenge, and I’m glad to be a part of it all.
