|Looking tres refined (and a bit devilish) |
at the Emerald City Writers Conference
I wasn't very worried about myself. I have a few friends in the Seattle area, and so I crashed at my friend Jane's house. But I was pretty concerned about my son (who already has issues with separation anxiety) and husband. Thank goodness, everyone pulled through.
Once I finally got home, I received word that I won third place in the SFA-RWA Heart to Heart contest, and I was also a finalist in Nashville's Melody of Love contest for His Roman Heart's Desire. I also received an honorable mention for my romantic fantasy story "Brownie Points" in the Writers of the Future contest.
Oh, and did I mention I will be vice president of CTRWA next year? Phew!
I'm in the midst of heavily revising HRHD, so much so that it can only be called a complete rewrite! I feel really good about this, though, because I can already tell my changes make the story so much stronger. This is my NaNoWriMo project--to rewrite HRHD so it will be ready in December. Let's hope that all the excitement of the past couple weeks will finally calm down and I can get back down to work!
