I entered a piece in the Flash Fiction 40 competition over at Editor Unleashed. It will look familiar to anyone who's read this blog recently, but that's OK, since very few people read this blog.
I was reading some of the other entries, some of which appears a bit, well, unpolished. I was feeling pretty good about my chances, but then I read one really good one that put me on notice.
There are a lot of talented writers out there.
