No longer qualify...

When mallory_blog posted about a writing competition called First Chapters in order to get a book published, I was all gung-ho about it. Then, I read the submission guidelines and realized that I no longer qualify for this competition or any like it. Not technically. Not anymore.

"Authors who have not previously published a full length book (excluding self published and vanity press) are eligible to compete in the First Chapters Writing Competition."

Which I haven't done - yet. But I will and by the time this competition is closed which is March 2007. March 2007, I have a co-authored full length book coming out.

What a very weird thing to realize. I'm not sure how I feel about this. Good. I think. Mostly just weird.

Maybe I'm just won't believe it until I have the damn thing in my hot little hands.
