Well, hey! All the mad novel redrafting over the last several months (hence my quietness in here — also, I discovered baseball; that’s where the summer went… curses upon you, Blue Jays!) might come to something: I just heard today that me novel has been longlisted for the Mslexia Novel Contest! Shortlist announced in January. Will try not to chew my nails off before then.

Luckily, the National Novel Writing Month, the ultimate distraction tool, starts on Tuesday, and I’ve a new novel to commit to paper! Are you in?
