Get This Story Out - Day 10

Gosh.
It's like I took a long Blogger vacation but didn't go anywhere.

I've only revised about 2 days in the last 10. I know, not very good. Deadline is July 1 for me to get my story mailed out to meet the requests I've received. 

I'm still debating on the contest entry of the other story. I haven't had time to get it revised!

You don't want to enter a sloppy piece of work into a contest. That is your chance to shine!  You want to put your best foot forward and submit the best of your story, the best hook, the best description, setting, tension, conflict, etc! After all, you wouldn't wear your holey jeans to a job interview you really wanted would you? No! You'll dress for success and so should your manuscript be dressed just as well.

So how have you all been doing?  I will try to post better and I do apologize for not posting so you all can show off your progress.

Also, be in tune with me next Friday. I'll be hosting Jennifer Hudson Taylor and we'll be talking about writerly things PLUS her DEBUT novel Highland Blessings. And guess what? It's another contest! I'll be giving away a copy of her book!!

I have outlined Act I of a new story, started the synopsis, and written about 3 pages of the first chapter. Now that school is out, I hope to finish the partial before the Maggie deadline.

Hey, Christy. I was just stopping back in because I haven't been by for quite awhile. I've been on a bit of a blogging hiatus. Unfortunately, it hasn't helped me get any work done. :-) But it's good to be back. And back to catching up with all my peeps and accountabilities! :-)

I got my gift and it was AMAZING!!

Loved it. :-)

I just joined the ACFW NovelTrack for July and am getting in shape for it. :-) It's like I'm obssessed with accountability measures. I think I need them. :-) And it all started here!! :-)
