Another writing contest at The Clarity of Night

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.
