With the deadlines for the several arts grants looming, I buckled up on wrote up 3 chapters, about 40 pages of the novel and whipped them into shape for submission. I used the same writing sample as my submission to the Borderlands Writers Bootcamp. Earlier this week I received an email telling me I was accepted! I did a little happy dance.
Now, my attention has turned to what I need to do to prepare for this bootcamp. For September 1st, I need to provide:
- up to 35 opening pages of my novel
- synopsis or chapter outline of remainder
- brief but encompassing list of major and secondary characters and their biographies
