Found this in my email this morning and can’t help but think I should enter. Not with Luke, which I’m saving for Harlequin. Not with The Paris Notebook, which I’m saving for TWRP, but something else. I know Blue Heaven is not ready, because we critiqued it on Saturday and let’s just say nobody is begging me for the next chapter.
I still have other mss I could enter. Last time I read Sugar Shack I really loved it, but it also needed some work. Then there’s Gypsy and Traveling Girl. I have not read those in a long, long time.
I wish I could just dismiss this competition from my mind. I don’t usually enter contests. I plan to enter one sponsored by our RWA chapter, but that’s because I want to support the chapter. Plus it’s far less complicated than the Amazon competition. Just ten pages. A love scene. Easy to enter, if not to win;-)
I am not getting an intuitive hit like “This might be my big chance!” Although my horoscope keeps saying this is going to be a stellar year for me in a new career, that I am finally going to get what I’ve been working for and dreaming about for so long. Which is why I am still considering entering.
Not a very wide window of time. I don’t know what to do! I don’t know which ms. to enter! I’m not sure if this is maybe a huge waste of time. I’m mulling it over. Meanwhile, I have two mss. and one contest already in the queue. Entering this would mean adding another project. Can I handle the pressure? Isn’t this why I took the term off teaching? So that I could focus on writing opportunities?
I drive myself crazy sometimes.
