The rollercoaster has been up and down this year, mostly down it has to be said, so I was pretty pleased to be told last night that the MC Hammer Pants ms finalled in the RWAus High Five contest. Apart from Feel the Heat two years ago, I’ve done poorly in most contests I’ve entered. Often I get a couple of judges who loved the entry but also one who HATED it. So this time I appear to have lucked in. Very happy about it but also extremely surprised because I was sure the ms wouldn’t get anywhere at all.
Anyway, the High Five consists of the first five pages of an ms (no synopsis – guess why I entered??) so I’m not sure if that’s enough to warrant a request but I would be very happy if so. There is one problem with a request however. I have changed the beginning of the story completely since I sent off the entry! Argh!! Not sure whether to continue with it the way it is now or not.
Oh well, will wait and see what happens. In the meantime there’s my SYTYCW submission which I’m tearing my hair over since it’s a little something different, plus the wait on my MH chapter and synopsis. Crossing fingers that perhaps the rollercoaster will continue its upward climb…
How’s the rollercoaster doing for everyone else?
PS. Big congrats also to my lovely CP Rach and my lovely blog friend Jo Dixon who also finalled.
