Finding Something Friday…A Simple Contest

My life can get very complicated. So when something simple comes along, I grab for the gusto. Today, I found a contest I intend to grab and not let go. That is, until I submit my essay to it.

It’s a Life Essay contest sponsored by Real Simple with a prize of $3,000! All you have to do is write 500 to 700 words about the most important day of your life. Everyone has one of those essays bouncing around in a document file, a sticky note, or even on a paper napkin. But it’s there somewhere. You have till September 9th to find it and make it win-worthy. Simple, huh?

And while you’re looking for that true-life essay, take a look around for a piece of fiction that’s been languishing. I just found a cool market listing page at the Fiction Factor website: http://www.fictionfactor.com/markets.html. I’ll bet you’ll find a market or two that interests you. Better yet, maybe you’ll find a market or two interested in you and your fiction.

Hey, it doesn’t get any simpler than that.
