Diana told me about a query tracker contest at 4 pm today that was open to the first 70 entrants. First five pages and synopses of a YA book read by an agent. It opened at 6 pm and was closed to entrants by 6:02pm. Seventy people got in the contest in two minutes.
Guess who got in?
Well, this would be a lame story if it wasn't me, wouldn't it?
It would be a better story if both Di and I got in.
Still--that's the nasty pulpy bits.
I GOT IN!!!
I did it! I did it! I did it!
Now, I've jinxed it, but I don't care.
I used Re: Straint. I had to cut a two page synopsis down to one page. (Agony. Agony.)
It was a serious rush of adrenalin. Woo, baby!
Now, I'm just back to waiting--again.
BTW, Di, I put it as a YA Science Fiction. (I was under the gun and nearly gibbering in my excited rush.)
Yay! I got in. I got in.
It's me against seventy other people. Phew. Fingers crossed.
