I got a call last week — my first call from a writing contest saying I’d been chosen as a finalist. Exciting! As an unpublished author, this means some exposure and tons of fun since the only way is up. The winners are announced during a ceremony in San Diego during the RWA Annual Conference in July.
I’m trying to decide if I should go. Chances are one in five of winning…and 100% of having a blast. But all those long hours on the plane are discouraging. Then there’s the expense, but who cares about that?
