About the writing contest. Argh. I don't think I can do it. Or won't. Or /will/ find a reason not to do it.

I need a muse BAD. Kelsey's great, and would also make a great "subject". But I feel using her would be a cheap ploy to garner someone's attention in a writing contest.

Let's just be honest (says myself to me, myself and I): I've seen MANY talented writers on El Jay. I don't /care/ if they're in their early 20's, but I'd get smoked like a Christmas turkey. For serious. Don't need all /that/ happening right now. In other words, it's doubtful I even have a shot. C'mon. Everyone and their sister will be entering.

Er, right?

Plus, I have this work to do *waves around at desk*



Yeah. That's right. No contest. Blah.

I hate to say this, but the cash is the /only/ reason I wanted to enter. I know -- sounds horrible. That's the only reason I entered that stupid poetry contest (and did win $1,000); for Christmas cash (few years' ago).

I'm writing a book (when I'm not doing that life thang); so that's great exercise :D

Good morning!!

lol :D
I'm glad I made you lol. :)

Ja...I thought so. I really need the $$$ right now, yo.

It's SO funny you say that -- my real-life friends say that I write EXACTLY as I am/behave/sound in real life :) :) :D

*waves around, flipping off random neighbors for making noise while I'm trying to sleep* ;-) :D

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
