In Which I Share News
I got some exciting new yesterday. It came at a perfect time, right when I was feeling a bit frustrated by my lack of effort this week at revising (this is mostly due to the fact that I have Thursday and Friday off from work and have just kind of checked out)
I placed first in Chimera Critique's contest!
I'm so super excited about this!
I've been toying with the idea of using Chimera Critique once I get through my beta readers (you know who you are or will be...(*glares menacingly*)) so now I get a chance to try them out first!
I get a $20 giftcard to B&N (yay books!) and a first chapter critique. I'll have to check to see if there's a page limit on that, because, as we've discussed before, some of my chapters are a bit lengthy.
They also said they could do a query critique instead, which sorely tempted me, but I've pretty much come to the conclusion that my query needs to be rewritten, no matter how much I love it, and I don't want to deal with that right now.
This is just the kick in the bum I've needed to get my revisions back up to speed. I've been slacking a little too freely lately.
Anyone else have any good news they'd like to share?
