Instead of participating I have managed to withdraw from the event. Revising my WiP has proven to be challenge - as much as I insist that I want the work to please me first and foremost, as I am revising I keep getting sidetracked by evaluating whether others (agents, editors, readers) would like what I am putting to paper.

In the meantime, I'll be reading!
