ON WRITING

“It’s very easy to quit during the first ten years of writing. Nobody cares whether you write or not, and it’s very hard to write when nobody cares one way or the other. You can’t get fired if you don’t write, and most of the time you don’t get rewarded if you do. But don’t quit.” Andre Dubus

Writing Competition - Mills and Boon New Voices is well underway




Well some of us have been a bit distracted lately, polishing the words off the page to enter in the Mills and Boon New Voices Competition. First entries posted on September 6th. In case you haven't heard of it it is still not too late. They want Chapter One of a novel suitable for any of the Mills and Boon categories by September 22nd. If you want to know more, go here

So, come on, own up if, like me, you've posted an entry.
 If we in blogland can't recognise your name we can't vote for you! And believe me the entries are great in number already, and the chance of getting around all the listed is going to be impossible. 

To read entries, leave a comment and rate it, you need an email/password.

Leave us a clue in comments here: the title, whatever, if you have an entry you'd like us to read.

Some people are not using their blog IDs.

I shamelessly ask if you would be so kind as to read mine: Search 'Denise Covey', story 'Ruby.' Please give an honest critique if you have time for more than a skim read. I can take it! Watch out for the comment form, it asks you to preview, then publish.

  7. I'm late for THANKING YOU for the shout-out and the Creative Writer Blogger Award. On vacation, I'm on-line very little. Actually this comment is all the blogging I've done. Traveling up and down the east coast of the US, I'm only keyboarding my WIP. One more week and one more chapter to go...

    Great lies. I'm wondering if "Good Morning Vietnam" is the truth, b/c, how cool is that.

    And it's great to know about this competition. Thank you!

  20. Hi, I was finally able to link and sign up. I read you entry and liked it, but for the life of me, I couldn't get them to let me to say anything.

    This site is rather in need of work:) If you have any suggestions to help me, please let me know.

  21. Terry, the site is terrible. You have to sign up to be able to comment, so you probably don't want to go through the rigmarole. thanks for taking the time to read and try to comment..:)
