Many of you know that I’m a member of Writing.Com (if you didn’t, then you do now! *laugh*) and that I spend a lot of time there. I recently bought my new membership to last me well into next year so I feel good about that. And I entered a contest for the first time in ages. I am eagerly awaiting the judging on it actually, as the results haven’t been posted yet. But what I am taking part in most of the time right now is the judging for a poetry contest that me and a friend put together.
Each day for seven days there was a different photo prompt and form that you needed to write in. We are reviewing the entries now. (Reviewing on Writing.Com consists of actually sending a rating and critique.) I have many entries to go through as each day had over ten entries. Many people completed all seven days of the contest! I need to get this done soon as the contest ended some time ago and people are getting antsy for their prizes. I think I shall set up a reward system for myself for getting this done. For each day’s worth of entries I review, I shall offer myself up a new book on my Kindle (and not a freebie or a 99 cent book either!) How does that sound?
In my non-writing life, things have been rather hectic, as my husband and I are dealing with the death of one of our dogs, Sparky, and we are both dealing with highly stressful classes as we near the end of our Bachelor’s degrees. I love my new class though (Intermediate Fiction Writing Workshop started last Monday). But hubby has to write a 40-page paper! I do not envy him at all!
