So many of you know that I quit my job at the beginning of June *high five* and I could not be happier. I only worked about three nights a week as a manager in a department store but it was enough to send me into a weird tailspin that I couldn't come out of. It didn't help that my boss was a nasty... anyway, that's a blog topic for another day.
Needless to say, misery is not a good emotion to motivate a body to write beautiful love stories. Or any stories really. So I'm out, I'm free and the great thing is the words are coming back. Even better is that I double finalled in Charter Oak's The Golden Acorn contest in the Historical category. So the next month is going to be jam packed with writing and honing and working on my pitch for the RWAus conference in August where I will hopefully be pitching to Avon Agent, Erika Tsang. Writing wise, I'm over the halfway mark for the manuscript that won the Linda Howard earlier in the year in the Historical category. I have to finish it so I can pitch it to Erika and I'm so excited for this one. Even more than the Opera Singer! There's just something about the plot and the characters that if I was a reader of this particular story, I think my heart would sing (modest much?).
Another change coming up is that I'm going to have a contest page where I will list my contest finals and wins and add some of the judge's comments. This isn't going to be a page to make my head bigger than it already is, a friend of mine suggested it and I think it might help some of my fellow writer's. The good, the bad and the ugly =)
Anyway, that's it from me until I come up with something more intelligent to say...
