A recent subscriber, suehealy, has a lot of writing contests and competitions on her wordpress blog–so one, thanks for the subscription! And the very useful links!
One of those lead me to the Unpublished Authors Competition, which has a genre a month, and the winning novel is published. Now I’ll do more research on this, the people running it and so forth, but April 2012 is the Horror & the Supernatural month, and if all looks good, I want to enter it with Ghostlight.
So I’ve got a deadline now: by April 30th, this book must be written and refined.
Deadlines are good. And I’m excited. Fingers crossed!
