running out of things to say?

Me, a writer, running out of things to say? Well, now we're in to the second to last day of voting for the So You Think You Can Write contest, and there are 700 deserving novelists who are very anxious to get that first prize -- a publishing contract.

I've described the contest and my novel, put up several miniblogs about ​the process of writing, blew my own horn, and begged. So ... questions? Comments?

They are sticklers for 24:00:00 hours between votes, I have discovered

Best of luck with it - I have been back, daily, to click my bit!

It's much appreciated! If I don't go on to the next round, it won't be because my friends didn't try.

Do you have the full manuscript ready to send on Monday?

You'd better believe it! Whether I move on in the contest or not, the manuscript's ready for its next destination.

Good!
I want to read the full book -- in actual print form!

Ha -- me too! It's been four revisions since I printed out a copy, not that a printout is as exciting as a bound copy!

Paper is better than electronic for me for reading.
I am not a kindle/nook/whatever person.

I just bought a Kindle, because so many of my writer friends are releasing works that are e-book only. However, I have to say that many of those writers are self-publishing and could desperately use an editor ... and although I *can* read on a Kindle, I much prefer a print book any day.
