Ramblings and Such

I’ll admit I was a bit lazy. I typed this up the day ahead, and although I’ve got a few other posts I could’ve used, I didn’t feel like using them now.

So instead, I’ll tell you about a couple things I’m excited about.

Remember Christa Desir’s Band Camp flash fiction contest. There is still time to vote on your favorites. And if you come back here next week, I am offering a $10 gift certificate to B&N or Amazon to the one who guesses which is mine. If there is more than one correct person, I’ll draw names.

So come back here next week to guess. Christa’s contest ends July 31st.

Coming up in August is the What If? Fairy Tale Madness Blogfest hosted by:
Mark Koopmans
Leigh Covington
Morgan Shamy
Cassie Mae

Click on any of their sites for more information.

Take a traditional fairy tale and ask what if? Then write a 300 word or less scene that falls into one of four categories: plot twist, tragedy, love story, or comedy.

Each judge is offering a special prize.

I have officially joined Team Plot Twist, judged by Cassie Mae. My story involves Cinderella, but that’s all I’ll say.

It was hard to get it down in 300 words, but mine is written and now I’ll just have to do some editing.

Gearing up to get an agent blogfest/pitch contest in September.

Deana Barnhart

This couldn’t have come at a better time. I’ve sent my manuscript to beta readers. And barring any major changes, I can be ready, or almost ready, by September. This will be a good way to test the waters with my new story.

There is a lot of stuff going on during the month, so clink on the picture above to find out more about Deana’s blogfest.

And this is totally random. My twenty year reunion is next weekend, and I am so excited for it. I’ll get to see some good friends I haven’t seen in ages. Along with all my other classmates I haven’t seen since the 10 year, or before.

So is anybody going to participate in the The Fairy Tale or Gearing up for an Agent blogfest? Or are there any others out there that sound like fun?
