Bing, Bang, Boom

And no, I'm not just practicing onamonapia.

The fingers drum anxiously across the desk. Waiting. Waiting. Not waiting well.

In three days the results will be announced for Brenda Drake's Pitch Wars. The amazing Sharon Johnston and I are teamed up against a slew of others to see who can bring a panel of literary agents to their knees--with requests, that is. This is round two, the final sha-bang, and I can't decide if I want to hide my head in the sand or click the refresh button every two seconds.

How do you deal with the waiting? Me, I turn to distraction. So here are my distractions today.

I'm joining Sheri Larsen--an amazing blogger/writing friend with her New Year's Writer's Creed. Everyone needs to redefine their plan on occasion. 
(See, it's even on my side bar!) 

Finally, the BOOM! The free copy of Deadly Kisses by Kerri Cuevas goes to...

What has you anxious at the moment, and what are you doing to relieve it?


  1. So awesome about pitch wars!

    I'm waiting on my cover. I'm dealing by reminding myself that I'm really good at waiting. It's remarkably like procrastination, and I'm an expert at that. ;)

  2. Oooh! I hope you win! Not the book. I am hoping for that for me. But the Pitch wars. I really hope you get it, because let's be honest, you deserve it. Fingers crossed for you!

  3. Thanks everyone. =)

    Peggy--I'm going to have to remember that: treat waiting like procrastination. Mmm. Better already. =)

    Amy--you make me chuckle.

  4. congrats to winner & soon to be winners!
    that creed is awesome!

  5. Good luck! And congratulations to Lucille.

  6. Love the idea of distractions! Unfortunately, I can't let myself get too carried away at the moment - gotta finish my edits so I can start querying the latest story.
    Good luck with your pitch!

  7. I know that it is a little late now but I am happy that you did so well at pitch wars. I absolutely love deadly kisses and I hope the winner does too. I enjoyed reading the posts on your blog.
    Just wanted to stop by and say hi :)


Hit me with your cheese!
