First. a quick update on the entry in Miss Snark's First Victim's Secret Agent contest. I wasn't selected. (Awwwwww!). However, you CAN see the winning entries on Miss Snark's First Victim's blog here: http://misssnarksfirstvictim.blogspot.com! (Yaaaayyy!) Go check them out, and again, check out all the entries there. There are some amazing writers out there that I hope get their books published someday!
Second, not to be on the ground for too long, I got back up and submitted the same story opening to one of WriteOnCon's contests. For those of you who don't know what WriteOnCon is, it's an all-online writers' conference specially designed for those who either can't afford to attend a writers' conference or just can't seem to get out to one because they're all too far away. WriteOnCon is all the excitement of a writers' conference right at your keyboard. And it's all FREE! So go check out the live chats with authors and agents, specialized writing topics, contests, videos, and writing tips and news awaiting you there: http://writeoncon.com. Even if you can't participate in real time, the cool thing is that everything is archived there to view at your own convenience, even transcripts of live chats. Unfortunately it's only for 2 days, and Day 1 is just about over, but Day 2 is just about to begin. So enjoy!
