I'm a Finalist!

The very first contest I entered at Romance in The Backseat has been progressing over the last month, and it's down to the final two - of which I am one! I'm so excited and can hardly believe it since the drafts I turned in always felt like I was rushed.

This isn't my WIP, but original writing that started from a writing prompt on the website. It's been a nice creative break from the WIP, but the other part of me wishes those 3,000 words had been added to A Passion to Protect!

The contest has been helpful to me in that it got me used to people reading my work, and with working on a deadline each round. Now I just need to set deadlines for my WIP and work to meet those just as stringently.

If you want to check out the final two entries, go here.


  1. Congrats! How exciting. :) I hope you win. And it sounds like you've already learned some great things, about deadlines, and getting accustomed to people reading your work. Definitely sounds like a win-win. :)

  2. Hey, congratulations Sabrina, that's fab news! Well done, and it was a first contest to boot. It's an encouraging post to read at the moment, reminding me that there is indeed life and hope outside of New Voices!! :-D

  3. Congratulations!

    And re: deadlines, ditto!


What did you decide today?
