I did it!!!

Yuppers I finally did it!!

Washed the mountain that is reproducing on my laundry room floor? NOPE

Slayed the multitude of dustbunnies with my swiffer sword? NOPE

Knit and purl my way to the end of at least one of the knitting projects I've started in the last year? NOPE

BUT

I did actually entered a real live contest!!!!

Four copies of the first ten pages of my manuscript were sent off to Wisconsin. For the WisRWA "Fab Five" contest. Now to some it's not that big of a deal but for me, holy shit! I mean there will be real people reading what I wrote. Complete strangers who don't know who I am and don't care.... ya ok I feel a bit nauseous.

They say that people who jump off high locations experience a moment of panic when the body/mind realizes there is no turning back. I had a moment similar to that. Almost tried to crawl into the post box to retrieve my entry.

Now all that is left is to wait........

Thanks for the bag Mo, I think it may come in handy *G* As for Hermes...fly yes, being the messenger of the gods he's a bit of a gossip and a snitch. Willing to rat anyone out if it means he stays in Zeus good books.
Feedback is exactly what I'm looking forward to Michele. *G* Now Im not sure how long it will actually take me to open the letter when it arrives. LOL

Yay! Yay! Yaaaaaay! I'm so thrilled. A big step, a scary step, I know, but a step leading upward. Upward and onward, FeyRhi. Best of luck. Fingers crossed!
