Excuses Excuses

Filed under: FanLit — aliceaudrey @ 1:15 am

I suppose I owe my FanLit readers an apology.  Or maybe I owe it to myself.

I was decidedly half-assed about my FanLit entries for the first challenge. 

I can lay the blame for this on all kinds of doorsteps.  I was too busy setting up the board, the rules, and the vision of FanLit Forever.  I was busy getting my entry ready for the Golden Heart contest.  I was trying desperately to keep up with a very active critique group.  I ran into problems with my children involving homework – which I thought they were doing but they were really hiding.  I had family in for the Holidays.  I am still new to this blogging business and have gotten totally sucked in.

Excuses, excuses, excuses.  You’d think by now I’d recognize the signs of a writer’s procrastination.

In a way I’m glad neither of mine won, as it could conceivably be considered a conflict of interest for me to enter at all.  I’m kind of gland my husband’s didn’t win either, though he deserved to.  He worked very hard on his entry.

Looks like, unless a whole hoard of people get in there and vote otherwise, we will be doing a Holiday theme single-shot entry.  I think I’ll do mine on St. Patrick’s Day.  Think I’ll win?




  1. Hope so. . . and your entries weren’t bad, just not “polished”. . . and that happens, heck, life happens! And when it all boils down to it, life is the important part!

    Anyway. . . off to get my kids to bed. Then a Friday night — free! Yahoo!

  2. Eeek– I mean to say “just not as polished as you would probably have liked” — they were very good, I read them and enjoyed them immensely. Thought I’d better clear that up!

  3. Thanks Pam.

    What bothers me is that I didn’t get a single 5. Avon had me so spoiled. On the other hand, I gave myself 4s.
