For the first time ever

For the 1st time ever I am glad I am an unpublished writer with nary an accolade to my name. This makes it perfect for me to submit my work for the new voices contest. Their site went live today and I am super psyched to start this thing already take this from the girl who once went to Richmond just to stare at the M&B office.
Apart from getting published, you also get to be mentored by editors and writers if you advance in the competition (lets not forget the hamper filled with books - mental carbs are so good for you) and 4 u techie junkies out there a new IPad oooohhhh!!!!!!!!
Am I doing too many things at once? yes, yes I am
Is this going to affect the quality of my work? No way Jose sleep can wait till I ...ahem win (am sincerely wishing all of u the best, did I mention that I like to daydream?)
Today is the last day for the blog bbq and happy labor day everyone
