There were three things I wanted to do. One was make sure I looked handsome. Done. Two was wear a bright red tie to make sure I knew I am Republican. Done. Three. Hmmm. I know it was a good one...

I don’t want any of you to think that your memory is as scattered as mine. I’m simply doing my due diligence in reminding you of a once-in-a-year-time opportunity to get in on possibly winning a writing contest to boost your confidence and resume.

I’m referring to the Dark Globe Create A World Writing Contest. You can find out all the details by clicking HERE.

If this sounds vaguely familiar, I posted a laugh-till-you pee-your-pants post on it (well, that’s my unbiased assessment of the post). If you’ve already forgotten about it or somehow missed it, click HERE. You won’t get a lot of intel on the contest, but you might get a hearty laugh and you probably need to do some laundry anyway. Just giving you fair warning…

Stop with the zany posts, Lorna. My hands are raw from all this laundry detergent. Wasn't lye banned at least a few years ago? And you should see the condition of my computer keyboard and screen...I'll be scrubbing for days.

April 1 is when you can start submitting your 1,200-word opus. April 14 is when the opus-submitting has to end. For the rest of the details, you’ll have to click where I told you to click. It’s the least you can do, since I provided you with the links.

Oh, poor you, clicking your day away. Well, I suggest you toughen up and buy another, sturdier, mouse. So many links, so little time...
