Unlucky Friend

After a fair amount of hair pulling, I've finally convinced a friend here at the office to start her own blog. She's had an interesting life to say the least, so I am expecting to read some great stories from her.

Check her out at Life of the Unlucky Girl. Her emails at work are rife with personality, so I can only imagine what she's going to do with this blog as she learns how to give it some pizazz. She won't learn it here, that's for sure!

Also, Jason is sponsoring the latest of his writing contests, so be sure to check it out. I have participated in all of them, and I have taken something from each one, even though I haven't placed--not yet anyway. Maybe this will be the one.

As much as I would like to win, I have to stress that Jason has created a community, and is a fair judge and skilled writer in his own right. So enter if you will, but I speak for all the entrants when I say that any comment made is greatly appreciated. Writing is an exposure, and anyone who does it is vulnerable to the void. So fill it with words of encouragement if you have the time.

Hey Scott, I finally blogrolled you...sorry to take so long. I love your blog--it's greyness. Keep doing those contests--it'll pay off in the end. It just has to!

Scott said...

Kathie, seeings as how I only did the same for you this morning, that makes us even. I'm glad to have made your acquaintance through Jaye. And yes, I will keep doing the contests. We have to remember why we write--and it's not about winning.

Thanks for the kind words, Scott. I really do love the community which each contest seems to create.

I will be sure to check out your co-workers blog!

Tried to check out the coworker's blog, but she has it set to invited people only.

You're right about the Clarity of Night community. I met several of my blog friends through his contests. Is that where we "met"? Can't remember.

Scott said...

No problem, Jason

Jaye - I can't remember how we connected either. Maybe it will come to me. Somehow I think Flood was involved.

Check back on the new blog in a few. She forgot to undo that setting.

Contests are very stressful and very enlightening too. Actually so is publishing a book so maybe contests are a great way to toughen up (ahahahaha).

I will check out your co-worker, Scott.

Scott, could you e-mail me at perfectneurotic at yahoo dot com? I have a question regarding the contest. Thank you. Whenever you get time!
