Romance That Will Set Your World On Fire

Setback or Motivation?

So here it is. My first blog. Well, correction--MY first blog. As in, I've posted to blogs before ('cause really, who hasn't??) but have never created my own. The topic, you ask?

Hot, super yummy djinis I write about, of course! Sprinkled in with excerpts of my manuscripts and the PAAAAAAINFUL journey called Getting Published. On that last note...

I entered the Golden Heart contest put on by RWA (the Romance Writers of America) this past November. A contest put on by a writing organization and judged by its entrants. And guess what? Yep. I didn't final.

So I'm chatting it up with my CP's and bemoaning my writing career in all its unlaunched glory, ready to throw in that typing towel-if only for half a day-when, as expected, they talk me back from the ledge. Thanks girls!! Mwah! and Smooch!<--these are my cyber kisses.

Now it's onward-ho! Today is a new day, work has to be tended to, kids need to be cared for, husband needs to be loved, and pages need to be written. I WILL persevere, I WILL succeed, and I WILL keep on writing.
