The essence embodies simplicity, good-natured competition, and a lot of fun. Over the course of twelve weeks we’ll be holding weekly bouts to determine winners that will advance to the play-offs, which will ultimately lead to a single champion. Bouts between who…or what…you ask. Anonymous 500 word writing samples, submitted by anyone who wishes to take part, that’s who. The submitted samples should be identified only by a pen name of your choosing (be creative) that nobody has ever seen before. The writing can be any genre, any style (even poetry) with the word count being the only restriction. It’s a way to get your writing in front of a lot of readers, without having to suffer the agony of exposure. We’ll start accepting these submissions today and will continue to take them during the entire twelve week preliminaries, but beginning on July 30th, the first WRiTE will be held.If yo haven't signed up already, there is still time. Jump over here and get in the game.
Second, I have been working my tail off and writing like crazy, which is exhausting. I don't know how you people who crank out 2k+ daily do it, really.
Third, I am now done with formal physical therapy on the ankle. The gym and I have a standing date at 5:00 am again starting Monday and I can't wait.
Finally, the Olympics Opening Ceremony is TONIGHT!!! I'm an Olympic junky. We have already started watching soccer around these parts (Women's USA game was epic I tell you!). I'm going to channel that competitive spirit to motivate me physically and mentally and get done what I wanted to get done before school starts.
Are you an Olympic junky? What can you get done in the next 2 1/2 weeks?
