You know, for all my fine words about turning off Twitter to NaNo (which I did) – I popped on a little while ago to find a congratulations from @lynettecurtis. For finaling in the Lori Brighton blog contest. And I was like…I did?
Yes. Actually it turns out that my opening paragraph finaled. You can see mine and the other finalists here –> http://loribrighton.blogspot.com/2009/11/finalists.html. There are 24 of us, out of something like 100 or more, I think. Megan Records of Kensington judged them, and the end result is now I get to send in my first page. If I make it past that, then it’s the first 15 pages. If I win, she sees the first 3 chapters.
The irony of it is that I entered it on a lark. Someone twittered the thing with a link, I checked it out and was like…Hmmm…free? Sure! And really, what do I have to lose? So, there you go. Drive by contest entry for the win. 😉 Or final. LOL.
