I went on a streak a year ago, where I won a number of writing and blog awards. I was fully employed at the time.
Now a fulltime writer, I can't win dick.
Is there a lesson here?
Work, especiall dull work, seems to wake you up.
Maybe I should take a job right away so I should be sufficiently awakened to learn how to set up pictures in my blog.
Says H.L. Mencken: The road is strewn with writers who thought they could make a living at this alone.
And: You can't be producing good ideas for three hours straight anyway. Might as well get back to work.

I like the hell out of the "get back to work" idea. Just haven't been able to find anbody that wants me.

Okay, Dr. James:

I went over to Clarity Of Night and read the entries - I liked yours, by the way - and then was accosted by a large HAND which reached out from the screen and grabbed me about the throat...choking until I agreed to write SOMETHING for the contest.

So I did. And I sent it off to Dr. Evans. He graciously acknowledged my entry and when I went back to the site to read it, found out I'd left out one of the most important words!! So I had to re-email him asking to have the offending verbiage inserted. He graciously did so. I think it helps, but nowhere near as much as it would take to come in even fourth or fifth. I think I'm in a league way, WAY over my head. Oh, well, that's the writing game. Learn something new every day.

Thanks for the notice of the contest.
