I won a contest! Yeah! I enter them all the time, whether writing something is required or just simply a comment. I never win, I swear, and yet I continue to enter them because that is the nature of me.
This time! I won a 30-page request from an agent! Yeah!
Check out the Operation Awesome Blog, if you don't already. It's pretty cool. Every month they have these Mystery Agent contests and what an amazing opportunity not only to get your work in front of an agent in a different way other than Query World, but I really love to see what other writers are working on. If you check out the entries you'll see what I mean. There's such a wide range of amazing work out there. Pretty cool stuff and it makes me wonder what bookshelves will look like in another year or two.
Anyway. I entered my completed strange little manuscript Slumber. My Twitter pitch and the first 500 words are up on Operation Awesome, if you be curious about this dark wierd book.
Happy Writing! Happy Friday!
