So Mythic Picnic does this recurrent contest on Twitter for his "Twitterary" magazine, and my tiny micro "New Shoes" (originally published in 50WS: Fifty Word Stories) tied for third place. There's a $100 prize. Nice start to my day. Mark Finnenore (Mythic Picnic) is local and I met him at an outdoor Bay Area event a couple of years ago.
This morning Mythic Picnic announced the first prize winner (a video), second (Barlow Adams, whose work I've long admired), and two third prizes. Now they've announced a bunch more (including a number of twitter friends: Sudha Balagopal (whose novella-in-flash I just blurbed), Chelsea Stickle, Chelsea Voulgares, Cathy Ulrich, Cheryl Pappas, Robert James Russell, Travis Cravey, Amy Barnes, Audra Kerr Brown, and some others that I follow on Twitter but am less familiar with. We'll be in Mythic Picnic's seventh online "Twitterary" magazine with this cover by Luana (@i_mthestorm).
