Reading entries and a bit of the naughty

Welcome to all my new followers and hello again to the great people already here! The Campaign has been a lot of fun so far. I was nervous, but I'm over it now. There are so many encouraging and inspiring participants. I've visited all the talented folk in my Paranormal Romance group. I'm slowly working my way through the list of people who have completed the first challenge. It's slow going, but I'm having a lot of fun reading everyone's work. There's over 300 entries now. Wow.

I've done some more revising on my latest WIP this week. The fourth round is almost finished. I have the itch. I want to submit it. I want to get it out there and see what happens. It's taking a lot of will power to resist. I want to make sure it's the best story it can be. It's so hard to be patient, but I know it will be worth it in the end.

I have other novel ideas bouncing around in my head. It seems they all want attention this week, but I haven't even picked the Cheerios off the floor yet. I also need to write a little something for my writers' group. I have to have something in by the weekend if I want it critiqued. I want to write some science-fiction, but all my ideas are too big for short stories.

Last but not least, Erotica Quarterly #4 published by Pill Hill Press is now available. My short story, "Snow Strangers" is included in this anthology. My first erotica publication!

  1. Yes, making the story the best it can be will be worth it. :)

    Ah, novel ideas. They like to come at one time, don't they?

    Ooo...I like the cover for Erotica Quarterly #4. "Snow Strangers" was a fun, steamy read. :)

  3. I've read quite a bit of erotic fiction but I've never attempted to write any. Good for you and congrats on the publication!

    I'm slowly moving through the Campaign entries too. They've been fantastic so far.

  4. Being a fulltime mom and writing is a tough assignment, but a full life.

  5. I've just started reading Campaigner entries--there are so many of them! But I want to get to as many as I can.

  7. Thank you, everyone! It's been hard to get through the entries. I think I've done over 100 now. Not quite a third of the way through.

  8. Yea, Christine! Congratulations!

    I let a story sit a few weeks then come back. There's always stuff I wouldn't catch or think of otherwise. I understand the itch, though.
