First Contest Final!

Friday, September 09, 2005
Romance Divas sponsored a "We All Win -- Best Opening Hook" Contest. We were allowed to enter the first 150 words of up to five stories. I entered Dude, Big Bad Wolf, The Gentleman's Club and Cold.

Dude (cunningly disguised as an entry called Definitely Not Quite Dead) finaled!

One of our coordinators, Kristen Painter, is the Diva of Schmooze. Lemme tell ya, this woman could get secrets from the Pope. Anyway, she convinced Nadia Cornier, who has just opened her own agency, Firebrand Literary, after being with Creative Media for several years, to be our final judge.

Yes, that's right. Dude's hook is headed to an agent.

Ladies and gentlemen, perhaps now would be a good time to refill your coffee. Sela is currently running around like a madwoman, doing the Lunatic's Frenzy Dance and will be occupied for some time.

Ahem. Ok. I'm back. Yes, I know that this could mean less than nothing, but it's a world of possibilites, you know? It's possible. That's all I'm sayin'.

It's just possible....

Free Workshop with Author Of The Month Candace Havens:

Candace Havens presents Fast Draft: How to write your first draft in two weeks. Really.
Week of September 18th, 2005
Fast Draft is way to get through the terror of the first draft in a fast and efficient manner. Why draw it out over several months, when you can have a first draft in just two weeks? Using creative techniques you'll learn how to write more pages a day than you ever thought possible. This class works for new writers as well as seasoned professionals, and allows writers to flesh out a story fast to see if it will work.

This last one sounds suspiciously like there's plotting involved. Hmmm.
