RNA New Writers Scheme Submission Posted

After a lost day yesterday (hang over like I have not had in years - thank God), I managed to print off August Rock and put it in the post to the RNA's New Writers Scheme. It is such a relief because I can honestly say that I am heartily sick of August Rock at the moment. The last reread/rewrite brought the word count up to 104,479! I know its a much better script than went into the NWS last year but I am suffering huge doubts. Will I get a second read this year? My head says no but my heart keeps hoping. Any way its off and I can focus on my kids who were getting very bored with my attachment to the computer.............

Still reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows but have fallen seriously behind ds1 since reading was out of the question yesterday - in fact living was out of the question yesterday!

I will continue with the RNA conference write ups next week. There is more great info to come.

Hope the sun shines for you this weekend!

I inevitably reach the stage where I swear I'll throw up if I have to read a manuscript one more time. Also by that point I inevitably think it's the worst thing I've ever written. A good time to send it off!

I'm still catching up on the Potter mania, reading HP VI--but my son's nearly done with VII and loving it!

Know how you feel about being sick of reading one's own book. Worry not, you'll love it again later.

Liz hope the hang over is a thing of the past - good news about getting AR in the post. Have a great w/end - enjoy HP.

Liz. I've a few crows of doubt at the moment and you know what? DE didn't get a second read so even if AR does not, you can still revise it and send it off and get it published. But fingers crossed it will get a second read, but it's not the only route...

Hi Liz

I'm back and blogging, so I'm doing the rounds of my faves to say hello.

Blimey, that sounds like a BAD hangover. I hope you're feeling better soon, and that the report come flying back to you...

Best of luck with the RNA submission. I've always thought that sounded like an interesting scheme. Fingers crossed for you!
