Today the top five authors were chosen to move on in the Dark Crystal Author Quest. I wrote a story submission for the contest entitled “The Gathering of the Darkened Wood,” submitted it on New Years Eve, and have been waiting with baited breath for the results ever since.
Well, the results are in, and I just want to say congratulations to the top five authors: Vinnie Chiappini, Nancy Gray, Greg Coles, J.M. Lee, and Ester Palmer.
Yes, that means that I wasn’t indeed chosen for the top five authors. That being said, I was chosen as the top 25 submissions!
You can see my name forever immortalized on the finalist list.
Here are the editors’ comments on my submission: “The writing in this was so beautiful and descriptive; it became so real to me I could see the shadows moving.”
I’m so happy that I was able to submit something for the Dark Crystal Author Quest. Now it’s on to the next writing adventure! I’ve got some ideas brewing. Just knowing that they enjoyed my writing is enough for me. 2014 is shaping up to be an amazing year, and we’re only into March!
And a quote from The Dark Crystal:
Kira: What’s writing?
Jen: Words that stay. My master taught me.
