Anyone got one they care to wield in my general direction?
I've got news, good news... I finalled in The Romance Writers of Australia High Five competition. I think most of you who read my blog already know that this is a contest of the first five pages for category novels - ie. those targetted at Harlequin Mills & Boon. I'm up against some steep competition though! Special wave to Melissa and Nikki!
My wonderful writing buddy Bec has given me a stern talking to, asking ''What more inspiration do I need to get off my butt and actually put my fingers to the keyboard again?'' Sleeping kids would be a start :)
But she's right... there's no excuse to not write when getting published is your DREAM!! So... this morning, I'm trying, I really, really, really am trying and have given myself the goal of 2000 words for the weekend.
500 down... 1500 to go. In the words of a train from Trouble's (Son 2) favourite picture book - ''I think I can!''
