I sent my first 500 pages to the Kidlit contest today. Yes I waited until the very last day. This is just the way I am. I have a hard time putting anything out there unless I've done everything in my power to make it the best it can be.
I'm really anxious to get this feedback and I think it's an amazing opportunity to get a 500 word critique from someone so experienced, and whose oppinion I have come to value so much.
I have to work hard to turn-off the fantasy that I've created and focus on the reality that this will make me a better writer no matter what.
