The Kidlit Contest....

A few months ago, I posted a blog about chances. And I believe one chance IS all I need. But in order to increase the likelihood of actually getting there, I need to create my own chances.

Anyone can do it. And if you have a novel that you are ready to submit, here's your chance. It's easy. And to be honest, I have found the preparation fun, but that's me. So, to all you YA novelists out there, take your chance along with me. Submit your first 500 words to:

Kidlit contest

And may the best words win!!!

Good luck.

Announcement of Intention

It's 2010. I have goals. Real ones. Some are in my control and some are not. My blog, website are in my control and may shift the tide for me.

I am about to embark on the lovely journey of finding an agent. It will be a long, hard road. I expect rejections, a lot of rejections. And honestly, I can embrace it. But what if one actually wants to read my novel? What if...God, I can't even go there. Though I should start imagining that I will sign an agent this year. Isn't that how dreams come to fruition?

Well, maybe later I will think of that.

Anyway, I have not been keeping this blog active. And that is going to change. So is the whole site itself, along with my website.

I have a plan. One that involves my platform: Young Adult, Fiction/Novel writing, Depression and Suicide.

Yes! I said the words: DEPRESSION and SUICIDE.

I want to talk about them. It's about time.

So, over the n ext few months, expect big changes from my blog and website. And maybe, I can interest a few agents, thereby swaying the odds in my favor.
