A microfiction blast from the past: “August at the Fair” was named a Top 3 in Micro Fiction by Paul McVeigh for his Hawthorne Citation…back in 2012.

I just realized this is the second time I have been listed alongside one of my favorite writers, Bruce Holland Rogers. The first time? We were finalists for the The Micro Award with “Aglaglagl” and “Revisions.”

Thanks for the mention, Mr. P. McVeigh! You may never happen upon my name again, but once upon a time you did and you just might again.

Discovering something late is better than never discovering it at all, I suppose, as long as it’s kudos stashed away on the internet and not a rotting pastel egg a niece or nephew never found—or didn’t find on purpose—when you packed 43 bodies into your home for the family Easter brunch.

My discovery, thankfully, is of the kudos variety: “August at the Fair” was named as a Top 3 Micro Fiction finalist by Paul McVeigh for his Hawthorne Citation…back in 2012. This is the second time I appear alongside a favorite author, Bruce Holland Rogers. The first time was for the The Micro Award with “Revisions.”

Thanks for the mention, Mr. P. McVeigh! You may never happen upon my name again, but once upon a time you did and you just might again. So, I will keep writing in a way that would make you proud of mentioning a little-known writer back in 2012, in the event you do happen upon me again. ~ N
