Shout Out Time!

I’m going to avoid the fact that I haven’t blogged in over a month and that I’m woefully behind on my completion schedule for my novel draft and take this opportunity to give a shout out. (I know I’m not really fooling anyone but it’s a great example of deflection, huh?)

About two years ago I joined an online writer’s workshop -- The Next Big Writer ( In my time on the site I’ve gotten unparalleled feedback, read some amazing novels and met some talented writers and now friends. If you’re interested in trying out a workshop, or a different one, I highly suggest you visit TNBW.

There’s a great competition coming up, The Strongest Start Novel Competition. All you need to do is wow the judges with your first three chapters and you have a shot at over $3,300 in prizes. The best part is, win or lose, you get feedback from some amazingly talented writers.

Check it out!

Short but sweet so I can keep from getting any further behind on my rewrites.
