Writers, Get Excited.

Chances are, all my writing buddies out there already know about this contest, but just in case you have not heard about Amazon’s Breakthrough Novel Award, I am sharing anyway. Beginning in January, CreateSpace is accepting pitches for a multi-round contest that ends in May with a $50,000 advance and a publishing contract. Four runners-up will also receive $15,000 and contracts.

Now, you know I like a good contest to put fire in my fingers to get some writing done. And, with a lackluster showing for NaNoWriMo, I am excited to get back to work on my original baby, Expecting Happiness. From now to January, operation finish this sucker. I know, I know, I said I was done before, more than once. Turns out a couple months off, some good reading on the writing craft, and additional input has left me with a list of things I am excited to improve. Plus, still have not perfected that whole pitch thing…

So, if you have a finished or near-finished manuscript, hope you’ll join me in this endeavor. Motivation in numbers… Right?
