Borderlands Writers Bootcamp

I'm in! It's been a crazy couple of weeks. I know my last blog entry detailed how I had decided to put my Black Knight Towing novel to rest, but it wouldn't let me. Trevor Galloway kept coming back to me and demanded to be written about.

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
It's going to be an exciting and busy summer!
