Over at The Clarity of Night, Jason has posted another writing contest. I entered his first contest which had over forty entrants. He has posted a picture and wants a story of no more than 250 words inspired by the photo. The deadline for the contest is Wednesday, June 28th.
Here is my entry for the first contest. It was a lot of fun, but was tough to tell a story in only 250 words. I hope to complete an entry for this contest as well. That gives me three contests I want to enter.
Related to this, readers of this blog may wonder why I am always talking about writing contests. I am a naturally competitive person. I love playing and watching sports, because of the competition. In my daily life, I make little competitions for myself to motivate myself and make things more interesting. Writing contests provide me with this motivation that I otherwise am missing.
