Tomorrow, I swear.

Today has been a very busy day. I’ve been running all over town, getting things ready for one very special moment. And what moment was that? Well, I finally submitted my short story to the Writers of the Future Contest!

Let me tell you, it was a very satisfying moment to put my baby into that big manila envelope and get it all stamped. As I left the post office, I glanced back and saw it sitting in the pile with other to be mailed items. I was grinning from ear to ear. Not because I think I stand much of a chance at winning, but because I’m finally doing it again, you know? I’m back in the game.

It’s been SO long since I’ve made any real attempts to do anything. I stopped querying in January. So, it’s great to be back in play. As for the contest, I understand it will take three months to hear back, so here’s to waiting! 🙂

Speaking of waiting, I will post my Photoshop Friday tomorrow.

And that’s a Renee Collins guarantee. You can take it to the bank and cash it.

    Yeah, what happened to Photoshop Friday? No pressure, just hoping you start that again. 😀

    Yah for you!!! I know that feeling, I had it when I dropped my submission in the mail for the Hunger Mountain Contest. Even if you don’t win, you feel like you’ve accomplished something.
