Bleh...

I'm sending in a contest entry today... 10 pages that I sweated over with the help of some writing friends. Now I want to vomit .... bleh....

Next week they announce the winners of a contest that I finalled in. I think vomiting is in order again.... bleh...

I wonder if I will ever stop feeling nauseous when I send stuff in for other folks to read? I'm submitting a short romance to an online magazine this weekend as well... double bleh... I'll let you know if it's published.

Now it's time for Blatant Friend Promotion:

Charity is a guest blogger at Romancing the Blog. If you think she isn't excited, then check out her own blog where she announced the news.

Yo, Charity. You deserved this one! You're a gem.

Suzanne,

Thanks! Next year I want to be at the RWA conference as either:

1. A Golden Heart Finalist; or
2. A published novelist

But I still want to vomit. Bleh...

For your short romantic fiction? Have you seen this market. It's overseas, but you can email stories.

And thanks for the kind words!

Charity,

Thanks for the Womans Day link - I shared with the two folks in TT who are from Australia. I'm assuming I can submit, too, and have asked them if they can transcribe a story or two so I can see what they're looking for.

Wonder if I have to spell it "colour" and "honour"? That'll take a bit of getting used to!
