My first short story won an award!

The most gratifying aspect of being a writer is when someone acknowledges your talent in the form of an award. I have been lucky to have a few of them. Someday, I hope to win the big ones but for now, I’m happy with what I have gotten so far. I enjoy writing and I’m always on the lookout of how to improve my craft and that motivation is always the driving force of whatever I do in life.

There was a Writing Competition sponsored by the Writer’s Digest in May 2015 and I decided to enter the short story category. My entry called “The Pink Slip” won an award. I was so excited when I received the email from the Writer’s Digest. It really made my day. Someday, I’ll publish it.
