I haven't been very active lately around the cooler. I'm trying very hard to stay focused on the final edit of my first novel. My goal is to have it ready to submit to agents by the end of this year.

So far, so good--I have been staying on task. But, it doesn't hurt to get a bit of outside validation to keep me motivated, and today I got a BIG dose of motivation . . .

I won second place http://www.3reef.com/forums/images/smilies/second.gif in ByLine's 1st Chapter of a Novel Contest http://www.prophecynet.com/images/smilies/woohoo.gif

You rock! I can't wait to be ordering that book from Amazon. Nah, I'll ask my local bookstore to order it for me.

Okay, okay, I'll wait till you finish it. But I just know it's gonna be so GREAT!
