So, being the writer at heart that I am, I'm stuck waiting to see if I won a writing contest or not. I hate waiting!
I entered an essay contest at www.winhawaiianhome.com, where if your essay is chosen, you win a little hawaiian cottage. Or, cash prizes for 2nd/3rd places. It cost $101 to enter and must be less than 101 words on either 'Mahalo' (thankfulness) or 'Aloha' (welcoming nature). I wrote on 'Mahalo'. Good theme. Hard to get it done in less than 101 words!
I feel pretty good about my chances, but you never know. So, I promise to keep you posted ~ wish me luck!
