I have been writing daily since I last posted. So far there are 15,000 words. Only I don't know if what I am writing is worthy. I suppose that is every writers nightmare or fear or angst or whatever you call it.
So I did ask a friend to read the first three chapters. Now I know that a friend may not give me the feedback I need -- but I'm pretty sure that she will give me the feedback I want. No, I'm kidding. She is actually the perfect reflection of my projected audience. She is also scrupulously honest. If if does not meet her standards, then I know I should scrap the project or start again.
In the meantime, Writer's Digest has sent a notice for submissions for their annual contest. I am considering submitting part of my manuscript. I have some time to prepare a submission so here is hoping.
