I have some news on the writing front. Anyone who knows me knows that I write fiction as one of my many and varied hobbies. Firstly of all, I’ve decided to enter the local newspaper’s short story contest. The deadline is Dec. 17th, and I’m going to write a new story just for it. My first ever contest! Wish me luck.
Secondly, and highly, highly exciting, is this: Last year and this year, I have participated in the grand writing frenzy known as NaNoWriMo. The object of the game is to turn out a 50k word novel (novella, really) written entirely during the month of November. I sent a published writer friend of mine a few exerpts of this year’s project, and she was very impressed. She was impressed enough to offer to give the finished manuscript (after revisions, rewrites, that sort of thing) to some literary agents of her acquaintance for their review.
I’m just a little excited about that. *cough*
