So I received an email tonight that my story "Oneida" was a finalist in the Glimmer Train Fiction Open. I was initially disappointed that it didn't win/won't be published, but, the more it settles in, the more it feels like an accomplishment. Hopefully another good journal will accept it, and at least I can mention this in a cover letter.

Sat Nam! (literally "Truth Name"--a Sikh greeting)

Semi-Congrats! And full congrats on the good attitude.

Blessings,

Oh wow, that's great! I can see how it would be bittersweet, but I know (or have heard) that Glimmer Train is very, very hard.

Finalist is awesome. Glimmer Train is really hard. If it got finalist there it must be really good. Be proud of yourself.

Well done. There is nothing at all wrong with being a finalist. It is an achievement and one step closer to something higher.

Glimmer Train is a very tough competition, so it's definitely an accomplishment. Congrats! :hooray:

Very nice -- no easy feat, given the volume of subs they get.
