One fun and unexpected part of winning the Writer of the Future contest is meeting the other winners and contestants. They've proven to be a great group of characters with the accent on character. The next three winners were announced this week and I've had a remote conversation with one and posted to the other two. Hopefully, we will all know each other and be anticipating meeting in person next April for our classes and award ceremony. It's always good to add to the collegial group of writers since it can be a lonely craft.
