Ahhhh, The Waiting Game

Not hearing is a good thing...right? Wrong, it's driving me nuts. Distracting me from writing to the point that I'm ready to pull my hair out. Focus, girl, focus. Come on now the rejection or acceptance will come when they come. So much going on in the submission department for me right now that I'm on overload, which is good and bad both. Good that I'm able to write, bad that it's distracting me from keeping the flow going. The Romance Divas "We All Win" Best Opening Hook contest winner hasn't been announced yet. The Blaze contest announcement date is closing in. Two submissions to Woman's World and another submission in progress. So, if you're a writer maybe you can understand where I'm coming from on the hair pulling out thing. (LOL.) Sometimes even a rejection is a breath of relief. Not a good setiment maybe, but it's an answer to the waiting game we as writers play everyday. That's it for today's musing. Thank you for stopping by and listening to my ranting. (wink) Don't forget to check out my new print books available at: www.cafepress.com/diskusbooks/781931 Perfect gift for any day. (Pssst, I made the covers myself)

Kissed Another Baby Goodbye

I finally typed the end on my mini mystery, Fired Up, and first thing this morning it went into the mailbox. Yaaaahhh. Feels good to be writing so much again. I've already started my next mini mystery as well. So, I'm really proud of myself for sticking to it and getting two babies out the door and a third one on its way to being done all while in the midst of chaotic room changing and redecorating. Yikes. Think the redecorating is tougher work. Reminders: ECataRomance Halloween Scavenger Hunt begins October 1st. Romance Divas Sensual Category Romance Chat 9p.m. EST November 5th. Cia Leah author contest win a downloadable copy of Book 2 in the Zion Trilogy. Star of Destiny, Razor's Edge & Secret's & Sins are now available in paperback from Cafe Press and DiskUs Publishing. That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by. Sienna

Doing a Happy Dance

Hi everyone, Well I did it. I kissed my baby goodbye and it's now on its way to Woman's World. I also finished my Mini Mystery story and will do some polishing before sending it off as well. Wooohooo. I feel some real accomplishment as a writer. Now to keep my fingers and toes crossed that my stories will appeal to Woman's World and be accepted. I'll keep everyone posted on the outcome. That's it for today. Sienna

Romance Divas Workshops going on now.....

Hi everyone, Well I've got a few things to tell you about today. First being, the Romance Divas workshops going on now. CHavens is giving a workshop on the forums under AOTM workshops called Fast Draft. Some interesting stuff already so hurry over and don't miss out. She's given some background today, but the main workshop starts tomorrow. Second is a Q&A with Deidre Knight of the Knight Agency. In the forums you'll see a topic called Ask Deidre. Starting tomorrow, Monday September 19th, Deidre will be there to answer questions. So if you have agent questions you've found the right place. Third, is an update. My Woman's World submission is polished and ready to go out bright and early tomorrow morning and last night I began my mini mystery story for Woman's World as well. I also have another idea for a romantic short story for them once I finish the mini mystery. That's it for now. Stay tuned for more. Sienna

Hello everyone. Another rainy day here, but I have made some progress in my writing. Last night I started a short story aimed for Woman's World. Aim high or go home as they say. Hopefully it will pan out and become a story that Woman's World will love and while I wait for the yeah or nay from Woman's World I'll continue to work on other projects. I currently have a SIM in progress that my friend is going to kill me soon if I don't finish it. (LOL) I have two Blaze's in progress and several short stories aimed at many different publishers. I also started a story that came to me out of the blue. Still not sure where it will fit, but I'm thinking Bombshell or possibly Chick Lit. Okay I know what you're all thinking, wow she's never going to finish all that. Well, I take it one day at a time and the story that speaks to me I work on so I know that eventually I will type the end on each and every one of these stories. Right now, though I'm published through DiskUs Publishing, I don't have the heavy hitter contracts to keep me on deadline so I'm taking full advantage of the wide genre picnic spread out before me until the day that deadline hell meets me. You just never know what's around the corner waiting for you so take advantage of it while you can. Still no word in the Romance Divas "We All Win" Best Opening Hook contest, but I'll be sure to let everyone know the minute I hear something. As for the Blaze contest, I'm counting down the days until the October announcement of the winners. I don't know how much longer my poor fingernails will last (LOL) and I'm sure I'm in good company in that department though. Wishing everyone who entered the best of luck. That's it for today. Back to my Woman's World story and my make believe. Sienna

Hi Everyone. Well the Romance Divas "We All Win" Opening Hook Contest is really rocking. Check out the Divas at: www.romancedivas.com You'll be glad you did. So many great entries in a variety of genres. The judging has been wonderful. A lot of useful and eye opening information being given. Even my own entry (Shhh, not allowed to give away which one is mine to keep it all fair) has received some great comments and scoring. I'm looking forward to the annoucement of the finalists after September 7th and the final judge is Nadia Cornier of the Creative Media Agency, so I hope to hear that someone is offered representation from this contest. Good luck to everyone who entered. Sienna
