One of Fifty

Made it to the Semi-Finalist round in the Amazon contest.  Now am one of fifty.  The last cut will be brutal as they drop us down from 50 to 5.  We'll see how that goes.

One of Two Hundred Fifty

Well, I have advanced a bit further in the ABNA.  At this point, the anxiety has reached epic levels.  Each cut I make, while wonderful in and of itself, ultimately seems to cause an increase in extreme neurotic behavior.

Since discovering that I am now one of two hundred and fifty, I have been obsessively re-reading the manuscript, frantically checking createspace and amazon to see if any new reviews have been posted, and generally making myself insane.  Ultimately, while I am thrilled to have made it this far, I am terrified the next cut will leave me crying into my bowl of cheerios, woefully bereft of breakthrough worthiness.

Is it April 27th yet?
