I do, too. But back in my newbie writer days, I didn’t win much. Okay, I didn’t win at all. In point of fact, I lost…money, time, and almost my confidence.
Here’s what I didn’t lose: common sense. I learned from my mistakes. And you can, too, if you check out my Muffin post today where I enumerated a couple of my more memorable mistakes (and the lessons I learned).
So zip over there and give yourself a better chance at winning writing contests. Because common sense is swell and all that, but winning is way better.
