It's the week we've all been waiting for! Doesn't last November, when we cautiously and optimistically FedEx'd our bulging packages full of manuscript copies and binder clips goodbye on the crisp autumn breeze, seem SO long ago?
On Friday, the calls go out from RWA to the winners of the Golden Heart Contest for unpublished writers. I'm very excited because this year, I know so many more people who are "going for the gold" thanks to Cyndi D'Alba setting up a loop for a bunch of us who entered. Plus, I have friends who are anxiously (or not so anxiously) holding their breath.
I'll be following the Ruby Slippered Sisterhood all week. They are posting GH-related topics all week. Today's was "T-minus Four and Counting to Golden Heart Day."
It was a great hoot to follow their blog last year where they celebrated with everyone's announcements as they happened, and the winners often stopped in to say hi and give their reactions.
To the friends I know who entered, GOOD LUCK!!!
See you all on Friday--I am going to stock up on my secret chocolate stash for fortitude!
