I have now set a goal for the novel I am writing. I will enter it in the manuscript category of the Dante Rossetti Novel Writing Contest from Chanticleer Book Reviews and Media (http://chantireviews.com/services/#!/Young-Adult-Novels-Writing-Contest/p/21521206/category=5193080). The deadline is April 30th, 2015. I am in the middle of the novel at present, and will have it done by that date. This will be the second time I have entered this contest. Can I do better than being a finalist in 2013 with Snow Babies? I have hopes. I believe my work is good.
