I'm a semi-finalist!

I'm totally freaking out, and I hope I'm not jinxing myself with this post, but I feel compelled to share. I entered the one sentence pitch contest on the Query Tracker blog with the certainty I wouldn't win or even have a chance. I haven't even thought about it since hitting the submit button. So today, when they posted the semi-finalists and mine was in the list, I actually let out a little squeal of excitement--not something I would normally do. Fortunately, no one was in the office at the time.

I know my chances are still small, and I'm probably just getting myself all worked up for nothing, but the giddy part of my brain is winning, drowning out anything the rational part has to say.

It's going to be a long weekend.
