Rooglewood Announcement and Upcoming Posts

The day has finally arrived!  The winners to the Rooglewood contest were announced this morning.  Hurray!

I recognized three titles in the top 10: Guardian of our Beauty, The Brightest Thread, and Freeze/Thaw.  And you have no idea how excited I was to see those names!!!  I'm so proud of you guys!

Congratulations to all the winners and finalists!  I'm looking forward to hearing more of your stories soon!

If you haven't yet, please head over to Rooglewood's page to see the winners list and the other five finalists!


For those of you who won the contest, you will now be plunged into the exciting world of editing and publishing.  But the rest of us have to wait on the stories that will emerge this summer.

What do we do while we wait?

Keep writing and read some good stories, of course!!!

To help us with that, my friend, Emily Ann Putzke, will be on my blog this afternoon to talk about her favorite writing websites.  Emily has three published novels and the latest one, Resist, was published last week.  Come back later today for some inspiration, and be sure to check out Emily Ann Putzke's books!

    1. Hi Esther! I forgot to check back on your blog when the winners were announced, and I just wandered my way back here today. So sorry! But thanks so much for the warm congratulations! <3 (I'm also tickled that you remembered my novella's title and all.)

      I hope you know that YOU put forth a valiant effort this year too, and that not a single word written, cut, or polished was wasted. Everything you write grows you as a writer--so keep writing. ^_^

  2. Do you know yet what you will do with your stories?

    1. No. I don't know yet. Basically my three options are (1) bury them forever, (2) polish them up and try to publish them elsewhere, and (3) post them as installments on my blog after The Mental Ward is finished.

    2. Don't bury them forever! You should try to publish them, or even self-publish them together as a collection.

    3. Yes, I agree, don't bury them forever! I'm sure they're great :).
