Sent PORTLNAUT to the WOTF contest

This makes my third story submitted to Writers of the Future. My first submission, TECHNESIA, received an honorable mention.

I have hopes for this one, but I do realize it's a numbers game. The story first goes to a single judge who's primary goal is to reject stories, to cull them down to a manageable number.  And here is where it's the luck of the draw. Does the single person first judging your story like the style, genre, and story? Perhaps they like fantasy instead of science fiction. Perhaps they like soft (character or society driven) SF instead of hard (technology based) SF. Perhaps they prefer their hard SF to be dark and ominous, instead of optimistic and visionary.

I realize that even if I submit a great story, I might only have a one in four chance of getting past that first judge. Here's hoping!
