Six years is a long time to blog, guys. I'm pretty sure I ran out of decent content about 2 years ago. Well, at least consistently good content. I still have moments. But I keep the blog around because it has a special place in my writing journey—it's how I met my crit partners, met my first agent, and essentially learned the business of writing and publishing. That, and I'm too lazy and cheap to pay for an expensive web site design. Heh. 'Tis true.
I owe a lot to the online writing community, so as I've been pondering what to do with my blog anniversary I ultimately landed on taking an opportunity to give back. Helping other writers is something I've always believed in, even if I have a lot less time to do so lately. It's been a long while since I held a contest for a critique—but today is the day!
So. Here are the details.
How To Enter: In comments, pitch your book in six words. Yup, six. It'll be like extreme Twitter.
Prize: Each winner will receive a query and 10-page manuscript critique.
How You Win: I will choose SIX favorite pitches—those will be my winners.
Deadline: Midnight (Mountain Time), October 14th, 2012 (Winners will be announced Monday, October 15th)
So get entering! I'm very excited to see what you guys come up with.
