My short story “Where It’s Buried” has been a true testament to dedication and perseverance.
I first wrote the story during NaNoWriMo in 2013. I rewrote it and expanded on it the next year, got some feedback, and rewrote it again (practically doubling it in length). Then it was workshopped at the 2015 Tin House Winter Workshop. From that workshop’s amazing feedback, I finally landed on the story it was meant to be all along.
And it finally found a home!
In October, it was announced that “Where It’s Buried” won first place in Five on the Fifth‘s short story contest. The story is now live as part of their November/December issue and I couldn’t be prouder.
