They announced the finalists today, in the 2007 Genesis contest, run by American Christian Fiction Writers .
My name was not on the list.
I checked twice. Okay, maybe three times.
I have to admit, I am disappointed. I know I shouldn't be, but I am.
The good news is that THREE of my citique partners ARE on the list! That's wonderful news and I couldn't be happier for them.
I really hesitated to enter this contest. I hate contests, competition of any kind. It makes me want to vomit.
I know - I'm in the wrong profession.
So honestly, without wanting to sound like a sore loser, I'm not sure I'd enter again.
I don't know what kind of feedback I will get on my manuscripts - I entered two. But I really hope it's
not all totally negative, because then I really will dig myself a hole and not come out for a very long time.
Skulking off to lick my wounds.
Remind me again why I write?
