Oh hey everybody! So I have some really cool news to share! L.J. Smith (The Vampire Diaries, Night World, Secret Circle), my favorite author, like, ever is currently hosting a contest for aspiring authors and I entered and... I am a finalist! Not officially, but L.J. did send me an email with the questions she is asking each finalist.
Basically, the contest was for writers who have finished a novel to submit the first three chapters, and the final chapter, of their finished manuscript and L.J. is paying for an editing company to edit and give feedback. I submitted the first three chapters of Enchanted, my NaNo10 novel, but my first three chapters were only thirteen pages long, so she emailed asking for more and I sent them. She then asked me to answer the questions each finalist will be asked.
L.J. hasn't made any official announcements yet, but I am very excited. It would be awesome to have Enchanted edited so I can make the next big step.
Oh, and here are some other things:
- I'm going to start writing again. I promise. As you probably know, I've barely written anything since NaNo10, but I am really feeling inspired to get back into it. I think I'll start slow, with 500-1000 words a day.
- What is up with the new blogger layout? Not on my blog, but from blogger as a whole. Me no likey.
- Please leave comments telling me what to blog about here. I'm at a loss.
