Here i will share my journey of hopefully one day recognising my dream of becoming published writing what i love to read; Romance!

That is the number of entries in the Harlequin competition this year!
544! Talk about competition. This would be the biggest competition i have ever entered.
By far the most nerve racking competition i've ever entered and i'm not even in my togs standing on the diving board exposed in front of a crowd ;).
I only hope i have made some impression and get even a small feedback. Over on the i heart presents website they have said they won't be able to give feedback to all entrants and i don't blame them, but how i wish to make a small impression and be one to get a gem of recognition.
I guess that is any writer's dream.
Also. My friend has sent me an email with her critique feedback of my competition submission and i am really hesitant to open it. I do and don't want to read it. I desperately want to know where i need to better my writing and want to know what i have done well. Just opening it though is the hard part. I will wait a few days. Wait for it to shout at me and break down my wall of nerves. My first real direct feedback. Scary.

  1. Best of luck to you in the comp, Kerrin! I truly hope you at least get some feedback.

    FYI, I did not get feedback from either Harlequin comp I entered and have done much better through the traditional submission channels than I have done in contests.

    So no matter what, keep going!
