And the winner of a full NaNoWriMo beta-read is...

Ready to crown our winner?

Me, too! Let's do it!

The TWO winners of last week's NaNoWriMo Logline Contest are:


(Emy and Fey, email me your finished stories at katrina.lantz (at) gmail (dot) com in December, or whenever they're ready for a beta read. I'm looking forward to the exciting reads!)

It's so hard to sum up your novel in one line, whether you've finished writing it or not. I was impressed with all the entries and it was tough to pick one (umm, impossible, really). So I picked two, but that's my max! You guys know how busy December is. :) Thanks to everybody who entered!

Keep polishing your completed novel pitches because Operation Awesome will be having a December contest. (Note about the December contest: please do not pitch your Nano novel to our Mystery Agent. Give it time to simmer before you really tackle your revisions. You'll be glad you did.)

Kristal also has declared a BLOG BANNER WINNER over at her blog, so check that out, if you entered, to see if you're the lucky winner.

I've got a new article up on The Best Damn Creative Writing Blog:
Writers, do you read?

Lastly, but not leastly, I must direct you to Operation Awesome for a fabulous guest post by...

  1. Oh gosh. Thank you so much for picking me! It makes me so excited and happy. This is definitely THE motivation for me to win NaNo (which I'm so terribly behind).

    Thank you! :)

  2. Yay for motivation! My husband helped me pick the winners and he kept coming back to yours and Fey's. He's hard to please, fiction-wise, so that really says something for the plots you guys came up with!

    I'm looking forward to December!

    p.s. I'm behind in Nano, too. We can still make it!

  3. Woot! Thank you. :-D

    I think it helped that I tried to come up with a basic plot before I even started writing. So much easier to write a logline.

    I am also behind, but this is one more incentive to tackle this and finish strong.


Speak up! You will be heard...or read.
