I can't even believe this month marks my one year anniversary since I started writing. Wow. So much has happened in the span of twelve months. Of course I wish it was a tad bit more than it is, like say an offer of representation. Still it's been incredible and I can't complain considering I'd never written anything outside of high school or an email until last August, and only a year later I'm waiting to hear back on a real life agent who's reading my book. Crazy.
Oh wait, did you hear that? I think I may have tooted my own horn a little there. Forgive me but that's what keeps me moving along when I have those moments of thinking I have no business trying to see my book in print so soon in my writing journey. The way I see it is without pride in your work and accomplishments you can't really survive in the chaos that is querying, rejection and - well I can't say what else since I'm not there yet. But I'm pretty sure it's something you need every stop along the way.
Sooo, I'm going to have a little contest in honor of this special time and I'd like to know what your thoughts are on the topic. What would you like to win? Gift cards? Books? Something else?
Please leave a comment on what you'd like to see as a prize and even suggestions on what sort of contest it should be. Don't worry it won't be too complicated and I'm already planning on having two - one for a new follower and one for existing. Just because I like to play fair that way.
