Another step on the road to publication...

So, what now?

Full of post conference energy, I'm making a commitment to my fiction writing career. I've stepped down from all responsbilities for RWA and am now aiming to build my freelance portfolio and submit my fiction to all sorts of places. I have two contests I want to enter, one each in September and October. Then it's a focus on NaNoWriMo and the From Start to Publish challenge with my RWANano buddies. Good stuff!

BIAW - Come and Gone

So, another BIAW. Seemed like a good idea. Was a good idea. Just had that 'life getting in the way' thing happen, in a big way. BUT, that said, managed 3078 or a targeted 5000 words. Certainly a better percentage than the 50ks effort.

Everything's focusing on conferences right now. A big Oz/NZ contingent attended the RWAmerica bash in San Francisco. It's under a week until NZ's 08 conference, just out of Auckland, to be followed by the Australian conference, in Melbourne this year. All of these, writers conferences. Early next year, the first Australian Romance READERS conference will take place, also in Melbourne. Nice to have one some distance from the others. Time to recover!
