I just discovered something mildly terrifying (New Voices related)


Heidi Rice's blog that says the New Voices top 10 have been chosen

The Top 10 will be announced on Monday. For some reason I had thought the announcement was on Wednesday, not Monday. Argh! It is no longer reassuringly far off.

In other news, I'm home! My holiday is over :( I'm currently in a strange exhausted-but-can't-sleep limbo,  after arriving home this afternoon from London. That's 13 hours London -> Singapore than a stop over, then 5 hours Singapore -> Perth. It's about as pleasant as it sounds. In London it is currently 3pm, so I guess I'm experiencing my first bout of jet lag - lucky me :)

New Voices entries are, however, brilliant to read when your brain is too mushy to comprehend an actual novel - a chapter is perfect. So, back to reading (and eventually, I hope, sleeping) I go...


  1. It's scary, isn't it. Am keeping everything crossed for your terrific chapter.


  2. Not long now *plays theme song from Jaws* ;)

  3. Lacey, surely not Jaws! How about the theme from Dirty Dancing? *sings* Now I've had the time of my life....

    No? Well maybe the theme from Rocky for a bit of inspiration and excuses for fist pumping (like we need excuses)

    Still not your cup of tea? Okay this is a winner for sure - the theme song to Fame *dons leg warmers* "Baby look at me and tell me what you see. You ain't seen the best of me yet, give me time I'll make you forget the rest..."

    Hot pink lyrca and big hair vs being eaten alive by massive plastic shark....hmmmmmmm :)

  4. LoL it was the first piece of suspenseful music that popped into my head - I'm not sure what that says about me... No giant sharks here :)

  5. i know i saw that too!
    i keep checking my emails now hoping that i'm in the top ten...but no!

  6. Glad I'm not stressing alone!

    Suzanne - thank you! If I don't make the top 10 (which given I've not heard anything as yet, I suspect is the case), I'll still submit the partial, I believe in the story too much to let it go.

    Lacey - Jaws! Haha, perfect :) Elissa, I haven't seen Fame, I'm going to head off to YouTube to find the song.

    Kerrin - yes, me too. I saw in the T&Cs that the Top 10 hear ahead of the official announcement, so I'm starting to assume I didn't make it. Oh well - I'm still glad I had a go :)
