I made it in!! It was a ridiculously long day and I had to structure teaching around it, but it was worth the effort.  I’ve worked really hard on my query, completely changed the opening to my book and I’ve done what I can and I feel…okay. I missed the first deadline at 11am (8am my time) and suffered until 4pm when I could try again. I had pressed the send button at exactly 8am and then stared at my inbox all day. It was excruciating.

Anyways, I’m just getting my feet wet with this whole contest thing. I’ve never really put my writing out there to be judged, but I will hold the butterflies until Monday when everyone’s (200 of us) hard work will be up for judgement. Till then…
