I won a contest!

I won the "First Line" contest. I'm excited because the prize is a copy of Jeff Herman's Guide to Book Publishers, Editors & Literary Agents. I'm also jonesed because I won a contest!

It'll help me in my search for agents after the next set of edits.

I'm embarrassed, humbled and honored.

I feel silly, too. As writers know, all thoughts are to be underlined. That first line was a thought and the underline vanished once it was posted. Not to mention I did add the other lines when I should've only added the first.

Regardless, I'm very grateful. It means a lot. Currently I'm taking this book back to basics and trying the professional editor route. After it's polished further, I'll be agent hunting again. Jeff Herman's book will help a great deal.

Go to The New Literary Agents blog to see their announcement!

I need screencaps! I love Batman Brave and the Bold! ...txt Spoilers

Just finished Side Kicks Assemble

The little nods to other things is always great. I loved "Sit, Ubu, sit", which is the closing mark on several TV shows like Night Court.

I loved the nod to Dick's 1st Nightwing costume just like I enjoy his Earth 2 Robin costume.

It's great seeing Aquaman again, and seeing Speedy and Aqualad, too.

Having both the JLA Satellite and the Hall of Justice was perfect, too.

My fav part, however, was the JLA at the beginning. We even got cameos of Superman, Wonder Woman, Martain Manhunter and Barry Allen as Flash!

I want screencaps!

Hey! There are other writers in my town!

I read this article
Writers on the Rise
and discovered there are other writers here.

One is even published. Her name is Karen Hoover and this is her blog.

Ah, to be published.
