Brady Frost is not dead yet!

Hey folks! I'm still around! Many of you who have been following this blog over the past little while know that this summer was a rough one for me as far as work goes and my sleep tank has been running on fumes for quite some time. Don't worry! I've got some posts coming up this week, you haven't heard the last from me!

For those of you who read "The Boy in the Window", I found out last week that it did not win any awards in the Writers of the Future short story contest. I still think it is a short story that I can be proud of, I'm just not sure it fit into the Science Fiction / Fantasy classification as well as the judges may have wanted. That said, I will be looking to find it a home in print.

Glad to hear that, not that your story didn't win but that you're still with us.

Shame the story didn't win - for what it's worth, I thought it was great.

Hello Brady,

Perhaps it could have been more of magical fantasy type, not science fiction. It is a good story not just the right contest.

I have given you an award in my Working Abroad blog. This is the URL:

You deserve the award. Happy blogging.

Way to go for submitting to WOtF. That shows guts!

By the way, have you ever been onto Hatrack River Writers Workshop? It's a really great, very useful writer's forum for those that write SciFi/Fantasy. You should pop in sometime. I'm on there, under the handle wrenbird.

Just checking in after a long spell, Brady. Sorry to hear your story didn't get recognized as you had hoped. I felt it was quite good, but I'm not a critic, really.

It's been quite a rough summer for me as well - I've written a couple of poems about it recently.

Hope the "muse" is still finding you,

Kat

I'm happy you're still here.

Contests are very subjective. You take what you can get from them, and move on.
