I’m notable!

Several weeks ago, I announced here on the blog that Nathaniel Tower and the other excellent folks at Bartleby Snopes had nominated my story, “Lightning My Pilot,” for the storySouth Million Writers Award. (Actually, the story got nominated twice — my wife got there first, with a reader nomination.)

Today I got an email from the fine folks at a different magazine, WhiskeyPaper (where another of my stories appeared last year) congratulating me on making it to the next round of the Million Writers Award — which was news to me, but sure enough, “Lightning My Pilot” has been shortlisted to the “Notable Stories” list!

So far, the announcement is on storySouth co-founder and Million Writers judge Jason Sanford‘s website, but sometime soon, the storySouth website itself will get updated with the shortlist. After that happens, a panel of judges will narrow the shortlist down to ten finalists, and then you — yes, you, happy readers — will get to vote on the winner. So stay tuned, gang! Here’s hoping you get a chance to vote for my story!

Also, while I have your attention: shoutout to my writing compatriots, Ryan W. Bradley and Tim Horvath, who also got shortlisted this year. Go read their stories, y’all — read all the stories on the list!
