Okay, its time for a massive update for my blog today. I have added another watch dog, Coach Taylor (Kyle Chandler) from Friday Night Lights. He just won (finally) the Emmy for Friday Night Lights. If you haven’t watched this show, I highly recommend it. You don’t even have to like football to really like the show. I’m still in the grieving process that the show is over.
I have signed up for NaNoWriMo this year. I plan on using the story that I’m working on for a writing class. The writing class is with Delilah Devlin and Elle James (Myla Jackson) called Plot Bootcamp. Great class so if you ever have a chance to take it, please do. Wish me luck and check back in November for my updates on that.
Still waiting on whether I made the cut for the anthology. I will found out in October whether I did or not. I pray I did. I’m very proud of my story but if it doesn’t cut it, I do have another place for it. Rejection is part of the process, right?
I have also entered a writing contest and I should know the outcome in October, too. More nervous about this one because if chosen, I will get to pitch the whole book to an editor. Yikes.
Starting next month, I will be guest blogging on a couple of authors blogs and I will let you know when and where. Its been fun to guest blog. Its amazing that people actual want me to talk. If you really know me, this isn’t a problem for me. LOL!
Anyway…please sign up for email alerts on my blog. I would be forever grateful. And if not, that’s cool, too. Ooo, also, I hate my progress meters. Any help in this area would be greatly appreciated.
Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose….the motto of Friday Night Lights and one that I will be remembering during my writing journey in the next few months.
I have had the pleasure of guest posting on Three Wicked Writers. Here’s the link. I’d love it if you came and commented.
I’m sure that this is nothing new for you authors but I hate waiting to see if someone likes my stuff or not. I realize that the editor has to read all the subs, she what she likes, what to reject, and if a story deserves a shot with some polishing.
Phew…I’ve never waited before and the bad thing is, I’m not nervous for the rejection, if it comes. I just want to know so I can either be excited or take my original story and expand it/polish it up and submit it somewhere else.
Happy Labor Day everyone. I have finished my short for Delilah’s antho. One more read through and I’ll submit it. Whew! I hope that she likes it and accepts it. Thanks to anyone that read it and liked it.
