Writer’s Digest 90th Annual Writing Competition

I’ve done it. I’ve finally done it.

I submitted two short stories for competition this morning and I am so excited! As long as I can remember, I’ve always been scribbling little stories, imaginings, essays, and musings, making the world around me my playground. I definitely feel a comradery with Anne of Green Gables.

I should hear on my status of the competition sometime before October and I couldn’t be more excited!!

You can read my stories by clicking on the links for each, The Sky Is a Neighborhood and Batteries Not Included. Feel free to share!

Thank you to everyone who has provided me with incredible support!!! Micah has been an indispensable help with editing and helping me wean the stories down to 4,000 words (incredibly difficult when you’re as wordy as I am!). Many family members, many friends, and many work colleagues too numerous to name have also helped with editing, motivation, and beta reading. I seriously can’t thank you enough!!!!

Once I hear anything, I will post about it here. Thank you again for taking the time to read this and following me on my journey to be a better writer.

Kara was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, in a tiny town, Sequim, Wa. The closest mall was two and a half hours away in Silverdale, Seattle a ferryboat ride away. She spent her childhood playing in the woods, exploring her imagination, and learning to be a mechanic from her father. Creative writing was always an outlet. She started a career as a motorcycle mechanic, to later find she wanted to try something else. After several career changes, she finds herself yet again on the road with only the journey ahead. She writes whenever she can. She has been published in her previous work’s newsletter, The Healthy Heron.
