CONTESTS


I've targeted two writing contest. The first contest is a Short-Story contest. The deadline for that one is May 30th. The other is a Starter Phrase. The deadline for that one is April 20th. I'm thinking about entering a third which the deadline is June 20th.

Along with all of this, I'm still planning on completing my MS by this summer and starting Melissa's Urban Fantasy site.

I figure, if I'm going to be a writer, then I've got to start acting like one. (Deadlines included)It's time to move writing up on the priority list.

I've also been debating on contacting a publisher directly as opposed to trying to land an agent. I haven't made my mind up on that one yet.

I'm hoping to hear something back in April regarding the short story I submitted called "The Prodigal Demon." I entered it in a short story contest back in Nov. The wait is killing me.

The Prodigal Demon. I like that title. ;-) Good luck with the other contests too. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

I struggle with who to submit to, agents or editors. What I ended up doing was writing two books and submitting one to agents and the other to editors. It worked out nicely, especially when one got a rejection but the agent/editor asked to see something else. The only thing is I have a bunch of stuff that needs revisions and never enough time to do it.
