One of my goals for Spring Break is to knuckle down and really get productive on my own writing. I have been more reader than writer of late and I need to reverse that status. However, here it is Friday and school starts again Monday. Never fear, I still have great hopes of revising and sending out more manuscripts. I have to remind myself to keep working, even though that little voice in the background keeps sniveling: “But I’m on vacation!”
Fortunately I found some needed motivation in Writing Like Crazy’s post for the day.
Writer’s Digest, who always has the best writer’s advice, also runs fabulous contests. Currently offered is their 15th Free Lucky Agent Contest.
Three winners will be awarded the following:
1) A critique of the first 10 double-spaced pages of their work, by the agent judge
2) A free one-year subscription to WritersMarket.com
The focus of this particular agent contest is Young Adult. The agent is Andrea Somberg, a literary agent with close to fifteen years experience, and represents various fiction and non-fiction projects including those aimed at young adult and middle grade audiences.
I plan to spend the next couple of days fine-tuning my YA manuscripts and submitting them before the deadline which is Wednesday, April 9th. For more details on the contest go to this link
