My daughter who lives in Seattle sent me a link for a free contest yesterday. If you write a Christmas or Thanksgiving story for this Christian radio channel (Spirit 105.3) they are giving away two free tickets to anywhere in the US and $1000. Now she is pretty desperate to get home for Christmas this year since she hasn't been since she married three years ago...
So she asked me to write a story--the tricky part is it has to be under 1000 characters--not words--characters. So I took a story of 750 words and cut and cut some more down to about 200 owrds and the funny thing is--I liked it better!
Amazing how less is more in writing.
So go ahead and pop over there and give the contest a try. The link is under the drop-down at the top under Spirit Family. You might need to register but it is free--who knows--maybe you can win tickets to Florida to visit me!
