I WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is me (not really) this morning because I forgot to tell you that in addition to the first pages contest, I also entered a logline contest on Query Tracker.

And I WON!!!!

Holy Mackeral I am flipping out! I think I might need to go run or something, lest my brain explodes! I didn't think I'd win, so I didn't even mention it on here. Holy Moly, what a morning!

Thank you Query Tracker and Joanna Volpe! I am over the moon!!!!

Look!!!

UPDATE: I just received an honorable mention in the Miss Snark contest!!!! What an incredible day! whew!

Congratulations Katie! Hmm...I entered the MSFV contest too. Is it bad for me to want you to win? (Mine is #23.)

Katie said...

Elana! I am dying that yours is number 23!!! that's my FAVE! I totally predict that you will win.

But I will do a backflip off of that couch I'm pictured on, if I place at all! (Shelli, that is totally NOT me :-)

I wonder when they will post the results??
