On the Double! Only Six More Days!



I am pleased to announce that my pleading has paid off and the entries for the Merry Auld England contest are pouring in! ;) Or at least steadily trickling. Now, girls. It is the 16th of September today...(right?) and that means there are only 6 days left to enter the contest! If you have been procrastinating but really do mean to enter, now is your chance! If you've begun but have only been doodling with your pens and drawing funny faces on the men in the newspaper instead of scribbling in earnest, now is the time to mend it. If you have simply been thinking you aren't good enough, or you can't write in the style of these people, let me correct you. All writing, if the writer's heart is in it, has some merit. Don't let that stop you. And as for the style, I suppose I ought to correct myself. You don't have to write in the same style as the Greats, but simply in the same subject arena. Anything English.
Now that I have ranted somewhat, on the double, women, and let us show the writing world what we're made of! ;) Can't wait to read your entries! ~Rachel

I am procrastination like there is no tomorrow...I'll try to do better. I promise. I hope. I'll try!

Have a lovely day!

I did write a poem, but I'm having trouble with the last verse. Hopefully I'll make it work, and you should see it in the next few days.
