I hate to brag...and I am normally not prone to do so, but yes today I am a B-word because...I am a winner. Not like a stare in the mirror and repeat a daily affirmation to self kind of winner. But like a real winner of something really cool. I entered a bunch of contests over at WriteOnCon last week and I actually won out of hundreds of people. What did I win you ask? Drum roll please......
This is just so perfect for me because I am really into contemporary YA right now, and her's has been reviewed as one of the best. It doesn't hurt either that my work in progress also happens to be contemporary. So I know I am in good hands with the review. Plus, its 25 pages! A lot of winners got a one page critique or maybe even 15 if they are lucky. But no, not B-word Jessie! I get a ginormous twenty-five! (Said with the inflection of Will Ferrell in ELF).
So thank you WriteOnCon! And thank you Sara Bennett Wealer for donating your time. And thank you Random.org for choosing little ol' me.
Lessons learned for all you writers out there: 1) enter on-line contests--you just might win (I have won two books within the last month) 2) attend WriteOnCon again next year.
