If it weren’t such a cliche, I’d ask where the heck the year has gone. It seems impossible that March is already upon us — and not just March, but mid-March. What happened to January and February?
Lost to a haze of working, working out, reading, tweeting, writing and rewriting, I suppose. With the help of the Rubies and their Winter Writing Festival, and my critique partner, I’ve been busy pummeling Brad and Erin’s story into submission shape. It’s getting closer … I just hope it gets there soon.
The only thing I haven’t been doing is blogging (here, anyway. My weight-loss blog is flourishing. I joined Romance Biggest Winner 2 and am taking part in an online boot camp, both of which provide plenty of fodder for posts over there.)
In about two weeks, Golden Heart calls will be made. Will I get one? I kind of doubt it, since neither of my entries has done well in other contests this year. I’m not counting myself out yet, but I won’t be surprised if the phone doesn’t ring.
No matter what happens on March 25, I’m firmly committed to querying, submitting and writing my not-so-little heart out. 2012 is going to be a great year.
I had forgotten about the GH calls! I’m still wishing you lots of luck!
Thanks. I think I’m gonna need it this time … or more of it than usual.
…March 26th this year, since March 25 is on a Sunday. Too bad, since my chapter is having a retreat March 24-25 and getting calls while in the company of chaptermates would have been FUN.
I hate waiting.
The waiting is the worst part, isn’t it? I’ll probably schedule a massage again this year. I did last year, figuring it’d take my mind off waiting for the phone to ring … but then the call came a couple of hours before the massage.
It worked last year … maybe it’ll work again?
If I recall correctly, you had an amazing March 25 last year. Have you entered any contest again this year?
I entered each of my GH entries in another contest — one in the Marlene; one in the MORWA. Neither one finaled, which is why I’m not holding my breath this year. Last year, my entry that ended up being a GH finalist also finaled in the Beacon.
