Getting back to it!

It's been a long time since my last post. And since I really wrote. All that is changing. I'm inspired again.

The fire under me is called ABNA. The Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest is coming up in the next few months. This gives writers a once a year chance to put their finished novel in with thousands of others, and if their winning pitch gets them through to the next level, then the next, they have a chance to be published. Get a nice advance. It's like the Kentucky Derby for writers. :)

I'm working like mad on my young adult. With a tentative title which I've only told to a few, I'm going to finish this and get it in by the deadline. No doubts. Well, none that will hold me back.

I also have some other stories I'm going to finish and get out to those agents who eagerly await the next great bestseller. :D And I have a memoir that my friends want me to write. Well, one friend. She thinks it will be endearing, funny and a little heartbreaking. As life is. I'm going to get to work on it.

That's it for now. Nothing funny, just getting back into the writing, and planning some trips to keep me inspired. The picture is from a beautiful place I visited recently, Natural Bridge. Sort of reminds me of that movie "Kick Ass" I saw. Hmmm...I need a super-hero name like those kids had in the movie! Lol. ;) Next post will be funnier. With more pictures, even. I know. You can't wait. :D

  1. Welcome back to blogging Tracy! You've been missed! And I'm glad ABNA has lit a fire under you. I'm hoping to polish something after my cozy is done, but am totally on the fence about ABNA at the mo... probably will (you know... the FOMS...) but will have to see... Anyway, best of luck with yours!
