eharlequin Writer’s Challenge: Kid in a Gravel Pit – Tied 1st
We’ve started another challenge with the theme – 25th Wedding Anniversary – how did they meet? The date to post your 1000 word entry is Aug 7-8th. For more infor, click here http://community.eharlequin.com/forums/write-stuff/writers-challenge-4?page=3

If you’re not a member of the eharl community, it’s a simple matter to register and then you’re on your way. This is an effective way to find out if you are a writer or just a wannabe. Remember, if you can’t put your work out there for us, your peers, how can you get the courage to submit it to an editor/agent?

Writing:

I’ve been working on ‘When You Least Expect It’, book 2 in the Prairie Junction series. I have the widget on the top right hand column to show my progress.

I also have to finish An Outlaw for the Lady by the Sept ACFW conference in Minneapolis – that’s what the countdown widget is for in the upper right hand column.

Prizes Won:

Again, I haven’t won any for my writing, but I have won books for leaving comments on other writers/authors blogs:

http://petticoatsandpistols.com I won a copy of Destination: Marriage by Jill Marie Landis
