Today was a good day to get an idea in the shower and spend all day writing it. Well not all day, I had to go to the bank, didn’t I? The rough draft was just finished 10 minutes ago and already 2 people have volunteered to read it and tell me if its crap. That’s good! I like it. It is rough. Tomorrow night I should be able to edit it into something good once the betas tell me what works and what needs clearing up.
I was looking at Swoon Reads and wondering if it was worth writing a whole romance just to test it out. Apparently it’s like the Voice for romance novels. 50,000 at the low end just to be considered but if you get picked it’s a book contract: $15,000 advance. Sounds pretty awesome. I might even have a Romance I can rewrite and submit. Something to seriously consider.
It’s not as if there is a direct path to publishing. Got to get my oars in the water somewhere. I’ll keep you posted on what happens next.
