The good news is that I’ve been keeping up my commitment to some new writing goals. The bad news is that I’m often not allowed to publish (in any form) my submissions to various contests until after winners are assigned.
But I could use a little help with one quick contest. The assignment was to write about a personal “oasis” in 160 words or less; a tough but exciting challenge. In any case, the prize is pretty sweet and involves both money and writing assignments (both of which I could use). If you want to help me out, you can read my tiny submission and “wishlist” it, thereby elevating its ranking. Only if you like it, of course. 🙂
To read, wishlist, my submission:
Salsa dancing with an Unsuspecting Latino in in Xela, Guatemala
We hung together many years back…over New Years and a few months before and after in Taganga. We sat and drank from a bottle of vodka at that crazy rave party, and talked about our families. It feels like a lifetime ago! Anyway…I have followed your sit since then. I am in awe of your talent and passion. Take care, and best of luck with the writing competition! (Ps – it would be fascinating to hear more about your romantic partner..you have always, from the tone of your site, taken such a solitary path…and now small gestures or words or allusions are indicating you have finally found love…)
Done. Great writing. Hope you win.
Hey if you feel like it, give me a shout. Im in Puna mid Sept to end of Oct. Would be fun to meet you and your partner after reading your postings all these years.
