10 more omigods
That was me on the night before Thanksgiving.
I was putting the final touches on my synopsis + first fifty pages of my WIP to send to my writing group critiquers in prep for the RWA Golden Heart contest. I fired up my email to get the package ready and there it was.
“Dear Ms. Moreau,
We are pleased to inform you that you’ve won the 2018 MMRWA Best Banter Contest for your Unpublished Contemporary, A Long Dry Spell.”
Then came the string of exclamations and hyperventilating, like actual for real clutching my chest and getting light-headed and seeing spots.
This is my first contest win. And in a category I consider to be one of my strengths—banter.
