    oops. That was in response to the above.

    If so, then I'll finish polishing up my 74 entries ASAP.

    Thanks much,

    c.e.


    That's a pretty extravagant prize for 1000 words.

    It's sensible to work on the principal that governs cats: It never hurts to ask.

    Maryn, catless at this time
    Kindness. It doesn't cost a damned thing. If you're smart, you'll spread that stuff all over the place.

    I agree, Maryn.

    c.e., Gerardless at this time (but hopefully not for long)

    Maybe I can work up a T-shirt for the winner, too. Something 300 themed. Stay tuned.

    Hi jst5150,

    I hope you didn't think I was complaining about the prizes. I think they're great. I was just being silly. And really, after this, I should enter. I'll try to work on something tonight.

    c.e.

    Not at all. I didn't think of the T-shirt, which is relatively easy to bring onboard as a prize. :-)

    It pays to advertise.

    I did it. (I sent mine in.) And I'm still toying with a second idea. It's a pleasant sort of challenge, short enough to knock off fairly quickly yet not too easy.

    As usual, I have no idea if what I wrote was any good, but I'm pretty sure the spelling was spectacular.

    Maryn, adequate speller

    I already have my own cheerleader?!!!

    Josephine--Thanks for checking out the contest! I know you'd enter if you could. And thanks for the support! You haven't even seen my submission. LOL!





    (I've been shamelessly putting the word out in the blogosphere about the contest. )

    But you're already dangling an Air Force Reserve t-shirt as one of the winner's prizes!

    LOL! Not me! I'm a glutton for a challenge, even if I end up getting stomped on.

    Bring it!

    *I don't actually talk this way offline...but my competitive streak is showing.

    Oh, I could have diddled my not-quite-there idea last night, but no-o-o, I had to watch lackluster TV and complain about being tired. They say winners never quit, but I seem to quit most nights about 8:00.

    Well, I just suffered near-total humiliation in the latest Poetry contest, so, if things run true to their present form for me, your chances of a shirt might just be better than you think.

    Just kidding, I'm glad things are picking up. Looking forward to reading all of them.
