Good News Today!
Just a quick post to tell the world that my manuscript, Raymond Mahaney, Soccer Failure, has been selected as a finalist in the Writer’s League of Texas Manuscript Competition! Of course, I won’t find out if I won until the conference in June… everybody start crossing fingers now. (Unless you need them to type your own award-winning manuscript! LOL)
The judge who wrote on my critique sheet noticed a few things (um… 2 missing paragraphs on pages 7 and 8? What in the world? That only happened because COMPUTERS HATE ME.) But here’s my feel-good for the week…. the final words on the crit. sheet are in bold and all caps, and I quote:
THIS IS READY TO BE PUBLISHED.
Are you listening out there, all you agents and editors? Get with it! (LOL! I guess I have to send it to more than two, right? )
Honest to goodness, I could (to paraphrase Mark Twain) live for a week on that compliment alone. WOO HOO!
