Non-winning

27 06 2013

On Tuesday, the finalists in the CBC Canada Writes Creative Non-fiction contest were announced. I had been waiting for months to find out the results, and since I knew I probably wouldn’t be on the longlist with a piece that I had written and submitted days before the deadline that I wasn’t thrilled about, I wasn’t expecting to make it. Which as it turns out, is what happened.

I was pretty bummed, but the good thing about it is that I ended up with a piece that I now really like, and that I can submit elsewhere. And I’ll probably end up putting it in my book, so yay.

I’m a non-winner!
