Look to the right. In the margin. See my profile? It says "I've been blogging for a year. I'm not a writer, but I think I have something to say." Well, I guess I consider myself a writer now. What am I thinking? I'm entering a writing contest being hosted by the college. I read the requirements for the contest. The requirements opened the contest to current students and alumni. I was disappointed. I wanted to enter, but I am neither a current student, nor an alum. I crafted an email requesting permission to enter the contest as a staff member of the college. The faculty member and judge wrote back and said, "please submit an entry. and please talk this contest up to other staff members." The "Assault of Laughter" contest is being hosted by the Mark Twain Lecture series. My entry needs to be a humorous piece and it needs to be 1000 to 2000 words. I'm thinking of fleshing out my post, In Facebook, veritas. I'm sure I won't win, but... I certainly won't win if I don't try. I'm stretching myself some more. It's a little scary. I'll keep you posted.
