>Exciting Writing News from One Tired Mommy
>Okay, you asked, so I’ll tell. With a glass of water (how boring) by my side (it’s late…don’t want to get up thirty times tonight…sorry…TMI), I’ll share about my writing contest.
About four months ago, after much encouragement by my writing partner Christina Mercer, I entered a few writing contests. One involved my first novel, Out of Breath. At the beginning of July, I heard that I placed in the top twenty! Wait, it gets better: August first, I got the email telling me that I am in the top three! Sooo, on September 10th, I’ll fly, alone…let me repeat that for all of you who know me…ALONE, to New Mexico to the Southwest Writer’s Award Banquet and find out if my novel placed in third, second, or first. Best of all, agents and publishers will be standing by.
Now, pray for my success and pray for my nerves. Some Moms would be jumping for joy over staying away overnight. I, on the other hand, am not so brave (where’s my blankie? I could really use a transitional object.) Anyone want to join me? All expenses unpaid. Come on…I’m great company 🙂
That’s the scoop.
Mmmm, nothing beat a tall sip of Brita purified water….
