Upon denying some random person's friend request on Facebook, I see an Ad for a writing contest on the side of the page.
I, normally, don't click on these things. I just read them and move on. But the words "writing contest" hit me hard and I figured I'd send in my Vampire story since it's been a while since I actually queried it out.
The contest's qualifications are that the manuscript has to be between 50,000 and 150,000 words. I checked my story: 130,000 words or about around there. I punched the air and sent it off.
I don't know what's gonna happen, but I feel good about this. Good about the story, and good about sending it off. Which is a turn from how I was before: Withdrawn and terrified of sending it off for fear of rejection.
Well I've faced my fair share of rejection and now I'm ready for anything. :)
This is the site:
The prize is a thorough edit by an in house editor and consideration for publication. (Big for any writer, right?)
They announce the winner March 18th.
Yet I refuse to linger around the site, itself.
I've sent my book off, that's all I can do. Now I play the "forget about it until the winners are announced game." :)
Haha play it with me?
I have to work on The Immortal's Guide anywho.
How are all of you?
