Okay, so I forgot some vital info on the earlier post. I’ve had a busy day today. Not only did I finally clear my office of leftover National clutter and pay bills, not household bills but author bills, promo and such, argh! But I started my blog for this Friday at Murder She Writes. The title? What is your Message?, but then lo and behold! the muse struck and I nailed a chapter on my current wip. What’s a writer to do but stroke the muse.
So what I forgot to mention was the format for the final entries should be standard ms format. 25 lines per page with either Courier or Times, and y’all know you can get more bang for your buck with Times. Your cover letter should be single spaced, and make it personal. Lauren is a person too, and while she appreciates professionalism she also likes to see personality. So make it yours.
Another thing I wanted to ask y’all is, what do you think I need to change, if anything, for the next round in January? I think I ironed out quite a few wrinkles as I went, but anyone have a ground breaking suggestion? I’m thinking of making it 100 entries this time, and culling 10 a week. That way more of you get the chance to catch Hilary’s eye.
That’s all for now. Take care and write on.
