Obviously I'm not watching The Superbowl. I confess, I know nothing about football and have no desire to learn.
My son is watching the game - do I get points for that?
I have good news. I'm growing. Not physically, I hope, as I'm really trying to lose the holiday handles I've gained...
No, I'm growing in other areas. Stretching myself, doing things I wouldn't normally do.
I entered The Genesis Contest.
Well, for me, entering a major Christian Fiction contest is a pretty big deal.
Entering any contest is a big deal.
But, after much encouragement from my wonderful writing buddies, I decided I have nothing to lose, and maybe some things to gain. What's the worst that can happen? I won't place, or final, or win?
On the other hand, who knows...
So, I took a chance. Polished up those twenty-five pages and sent them out.
They tell me the comments from the judges will be invaluable.
I certainly hope so.
If not, ACFW is welcome to my $35.00 donation, no hard feelings! In facf, entering was so empowering, I might just enter a second manuscript. Ha.
Speaking of writing, which I am,
I'm on page 127 of my work in progress, Yesterday's Tomorrow. I'm a SOTP writer, but I do have a good idea where this book is going. I'm not sure if Kristin and Luke agree with me yet, but they'll come around.
I do have to say that I'm loving writing this story. They've been hanging arond a while, waiting for me to let them loose on the world. And oh boy, do they have some things to say.
Some days I have to remind them we're writing for CBA. But it's 1967, Vietnam...
Some days, I have to just let them have their say.
I'll clean them up later.
Okay, going to take my crazy pill now. Thanks for stopping by.
