I promise… No… I swear that I had a real post to publish today. I know, I know, I told you all that I was going to do this A to Z challenge, and I am… After today. You see, the A post that I had planned I actually used for a writing contest (and renamed the title something that does not begin with the letter A as to remain anonymous) for Write Club.
Yea… I entered my first writing contest! Now, I can’t solicit my own work… But I can drop a link and
ask tell you all to go, read, and vote. I mean, it’s a contest inspired by one of my favorite books, so obviously I am going to try to make submitting to said contest a thing. It doesn’t matter that you can’t pick my writing out and vote for me specifically (actually, that kinda makes any votes that I do get that much more special), the more eyes that I can get on the contest itself the better. The more people that I can get to follow suit and submit their writing next year and the year after the better. The more people that I can offer the chance to win a $40 Barnes and Noble gift card to the better… Oh, now you’re paying attention?
That’s right, I said it, every time that you vote for a story (and leave a comment/critique) your name gets entered in it’s own pool where you have the chance to win a gift card.
All I ask is that (like with my blog) if you do read/vote you also go ahead and leave some feedback… Especially on the one that you didn’t vote for.
Critiques are like crack for writers. Um… Constructive critiques are like crack for writers.
Yea… So… Um… I guess I still owe you one, don’t I? A is for Alphonso actually authored an article available at http://www.dlhammons.com/?m=1 ( couldn’t come up with an A-word for that one, don’t judge me).
Until next time, just write it.
P.S. I would tell you more, but I fear that I’ve already said too much. After all, the first rule of Write Club is that you “do NOT talk about Write Club!”
