I cannot tell a lie. (Well, I can. And have. Many times. This is not one of those times.) Um, where was I? Oh, yeah. I did not want to share this rich vein of submission deadlines. Truly, Sally Clark’s blog is that good and the little devil on my shoulder said, “Now, Cathy C., here’s a goldmine you can sit on, and cash in big.”
But the little angel on my shoulder said, “Shame on you, Cathy C.! Now you get your little boomerosity in that chair, go to your blog, and share what you found.” Well, I don’t need to tell you that when your angel starts talking about your boomerosity, you better listen.
So if you’re looking for one blog to check regularly for a ton of submission opportunities, then you shouldn’t miss the Christian Writers Submission Information. And if you want to catch up on deadlines, then zip over to this page and check out the month.
There’s enough there to keep you busy writing all month long. And that’s a good thing. Because as you know, an idle mind is the little devil’s workshop.
Okay, my essay writing friends, this contest’s for you!
It’s the Annual FundsForWriters Essay Contest (I told you it was for you!) with this year’s theme: When Writing Made A Difference. (Seriously. Could you find a better writing contest?)
You’ve got 750 words to make your point, and you can choose either the fee ($5.00) or no fee contest. The cash prizes are higher for the fee contest, but that’s only fair. And you’ve got till midnight on October 31st to get the essay emailed to C. Hope Clark.
Yes, you heard me right. October 31st. Which gives you two whole days to get your scathingly brilliant thoughts organized, written and sent off.
You do work better under pressure, right?
You would think that if a certain writer had an entire week without any Juniors underfoot, that said writer would be astoundingly prolific and get ever so much work done. I mean, it makes perfect sense, right?
Only in The Real World here, that’s not exactly how the writing week shook out. Which explains why it is Friday NIGHT and I’m just now telling you about my essay that debuted in errant parent
So, the essay’s called “On Being Ugly”
and I hope you like it. Assuming you have time to zip over and read it. But if you don’t get to it for a couple days, I promise. I’ll understand completely
