Writing Challenge UPDATE I am 8? Over the weekend I ended up not doing as much editing as I'd like due to so real-world problems (sadly I cannot live in the writing world full-time). The reason I was so stressed about getting this short novella done and edited so quickly is that I really wanted to have it ready for a pitch contest on the 26th.

But here's the thing: there will be other pitch contests. I can always submit through the normal submission process.

I realize that if I don't get this baby edited "in time," it might actually be better in the long run. I'm the type of person that needs to let my work sit a bit before I come back to it. This is a new genre for me, and I'm not going to shoot myself in the foot by subbing too early (been there, done that). I've had a pretty rough week and my email inbox is starting to remind me that I have a lot of responsibilities at school that I'm going to need to prioritize. I'm not going to let my novel writing go completely this semester, but I will have to schedule my writing time carefully.

I guess this is learning how to make the real-world and the writing-world meet in the middle!

On that note:
I LOVE DOWNTON ABBEY. Watched an episode Sunday and now I'm hooked. I gotta see season one now! Does anyone have any good romance novel recommendations for this era?
