the newpaper we get on a daily basis did a "call for writers" this month
I polished up two posts from this blog and submitted them
There's no pay for this activity, but it would be cool to be able to add it to my "resume"
also a certain amount of pride accorded to beating out all the grad students
and a bit of a flying in the face of "the critic" that makes me remember so well the line from Gypsy when she says "me, with no talent, as you've reminded me every day of my life"
anyway, I will fall over in a dead faint if they actually accept me, but its good to enter any way
keep on keepin' on!
