Marc Jacobs Challenge: Update #1

You've heard the latest on the Alannah Hill Challenge, now let's find out how my bid to earn some gorgeous Marc Jacobs shoes is going...

For those who haven't heard the
Mark Jacobs Challenge is to snare either an agent or publisher for my book on entering and winning competitions. 

Here's what I've accomplished so far:

  • Write another blog post on my other blog, I LOVE WINNING. I've written a couple, actually.
  • Amass 200 Google followers on that blog. Current count is 205.
  • Print out my book proposal and sample chapters. Done.
  • Finish sample chapters. Nope, haven't looked at them yet.
  • Update proposal with 2010 media training and appearances, plus freelance writing, and check comparisons with other books etc are still up-to-date. Nope.
  • Create ordered list of agents and publishers to whom I'll send my proposal. Nope.
  • Select first round of agents and publishers to send to and check their guidelines. Nopeski.
  • Send out proposal/cover letters to first round. Not even close!

So you could say it's not progressing so well, this challenge. I ticked off the first three items a couple of weeks ago and since then, a whole lot of not much. In my defence, I've been concentrating on the Alannah Hill Challenge and I've also been dealing with my computer catching some sort of hideous STD that makes it look up gay porn (I wish I was kidding). I'm currently limping along using Adam's Apple (ha ha) and the library PCs.

I'll have to get my butt into gear next week. Will let you know how that goes!
