Wish Me Well…
A couple of years ago I participated in NaNoWriMo and even have a manuscript and certificate to prove it.
Considering it took about two years to untangle the 1,600 words I wrote everyday for 30 days, I decided to pass on attempting NaNo this year. Instead, I entered the New Look Writing Contest sponsored by WestBow Publishing (connected to Thomas Nelson/Zondervan/Harper Collins). The specifics couldn’t be resisted: at least 10,000 words, inspirational or positive message, YA acceptable, and it’s FREE to enter. Plus, the winner package had quite a few attractive options including publishing packages. I’m in. I have to admit I squeaked in under the deadline of 11/30 by submitting my manuscript on 11/29.
I hope to have good news to share with everyone!
Good luck! Fingers (and toes) crossed for you. 🙂
Thanks! I’m trying to submit something every month. Persistence has its merits.
Thanks! I’ll find out in January *anticipation*
Good for you!
Oh, gosh, I’m crossing my fingers for you! Good luck – hopefully good news is coming soon! 😀
Awesome! You go!
You’re submitting elsewhere as well, too, yes?
Yes–to an agent for my MG novel, a couple of picture book manuscripts, and something to Highlights. Brushing up my play as well (mash up of Hamlet meets Alice in Wonderland). Hoping the mass quantity of sending out work proves to be a winning strategy. 👌
Yes! Rootin’ for you!
All the best to you!!
Thanks! Anticipation is not easy.
