Building Blocks

Right now I'm feeling excited, nervous, and a bit nauseous. I've entered two selections into the MeeGenius Author Challenge. And voting started today!

This is what I want and the type of "big break" I need. However, the thought of going against 300 other authors is a bit disconcerting.
