A Momentary Lapse of Insanity?

Ok, the above headline does NOT refer to a new Cheryl Kaye Tardif mystery.
(Although, come to think of it...)

The lapse I'm referring to is the five minutes I took today to fill out an entry form for one of the most grueling writers' contests in writing history--the 3-Day Novel Contest.

Yes, that does mean that I will attempt to write an entire novel in 3 days. That is, IF I am selected as one of the 12 lucky (or is that crazy?) finalists.

At this time, I don't have all the details other than what's posted on the site, but I do know that this national event will be televised on BookTV. The 12 finalists will have to endure sleep-deprivation, bright lights, noise, customers/fans (but we love them!) and other assorted distractions--not to mention enduring gallons of coffee and few pee breaks.

At this time, I'm leaving it in the hands of Fate or Destiny as to whether I'll be participating. If they select me, I'll be armed with my deadliest weapons--my somewhat warped brain and my laptop. I'll probably prop up a sign on my table that reads: Please don't feed the animal....bring her coffee instead!!

And of course I would take this golden opportunity to promote my Kunati Inc. Book Publishers' release of Whale Song, available in January 2007.

Keep all fingers, toes, legs and eyes crossed!, and Writers Guild of Alberta are some of the partners involved with organizing this exciting literary event.

View the trailor!
