It's official! I have entered the 2010 Golden Heart Contest with the Romance Writers of America. After last year's huge disappointment, I didn't think I would enter this year. But hey, I had the book finished in time, so why not!

This year may be it for a while. No plans for a new book at the moment. Instead I want to take my 'new & improved' writer-self and fix up some previous books that I think still have potential. In a lot of ways, this is harder than starting a new story from scratch, but I have to try.

To all you who have entered, good luck. We have a while to wait for results. Between now and March 25, I plan on polishing the rest of my manuscript, in case I get that magical call. This time I won't almost hang up, thinking it's a telemarketer!

On another, totally unrelated topic, I went to see the new movie "2012". Even though it's quite far fetched at times, I really enjoyed it. It keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time. And with all the amazing affects, it's worth watching on the big screen.

Next movie to see: NEW MOON. Review to follow.

Till next time,

Happy Writing!

Kudos to you, Sue, for entering the Golden Heart this year. Since I was privileged to judge your Golden Pen entry last year, I know how well you write and think you'd better be prepared for a phone call come March 25.

I didn't enter the GH last year because I didn't have a new story, but I submitted an entry last week. I think it would be cool if both our names appear on the 2010 inspirational finalists lists as they did in 2008, don't you?

May this year be a wonderful surprise for you, Sue!! Good for you for entering!!

I haven't seen 2012, not sure that I want to. But New Moon is definitely on my list.
