I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.

This morning I did something I haven’t done in awhile. I wrote a 975 word short story in about 2.5 hours. I decided on Friday I would enter the 24 hour short story contest that Writer’s Weekly holds every quarter. It’s not the best story I ever wrote but it has a beginning, a middle and an end. And I submitted it.

Here’s the link to the winter contest.
Even if you don’t place there are a lot of great door prizes and it’s very motivating if you find yourself struggling to finish work. The submission fee is $5.00.

Today, find a contest that has a deadline coming up this week. Polish up your work and submit it. Now get back to work!
