I normally don't do this

Considering I am still unemployed and DESPERATELY seeking for employment. Considering I spend most of my time going to school, studying my butt off and then going to my internship where I sit on my butt longer, staring at a computer... that I DON'T get paid for. The little time that I do have, I spend it enjoying the rest of my boyfriend's company before he moves away, and writing! I have been working on a short story for some time now (ask Mask!) and I am finally getting close to the end. Just in time to enter a short story competition for the chance to win some money (which would go towards school if I won, trust me). Any of you are welcome to participate.

Here is the link:

But you have to join their site first. It's FREE and you get to take part in awesome competitions. It's all about writing! So I urge you all to join... but there's always a catch, isn't there? For this particular competition (and not always) it costs 15 dollars to enter. Maybe some of you find that being a small amount of money that can easily be blown towards this contest. But, it is not for me. In fact, I don't have a penny to my name. And as embarrassing as this will sound I am asking for any donations, even if it's 50 cents, to help me obtain 15 dollars so I can send my short story. This doesn't mean I'll win, but at least I'm trying to. I do believe in myself but I know it's tough in the writing world. So I can not promise your 50 cents will be worth it. However, if you do donate I will definitely, without a doubt, email you my story and you can laugh, cry, smile, or waste time reading it ;-)

If I wasted your time just now, I apologize. Awful, pity post. I promise to get back in the blogging shape once finals are over with! Two more days!!!! Thanks.


  1. Good luck with finals and mostly, your story.
    I don't do short stories - that's a different breed of writer. One who knows better when to shut up ;)

  2. Thanks for the link. I'm definitely checking it out.


  3. that's cool of you to join.. I want too.. but I don't know.. i'm still looking for my guts to write.. anyway...
