Writing Contests - More than Just Sweepstakes

So, my friend just wrote an awesome blog post about why entering writing contests is a good idea, even if you don't win. I was going to blog my thoughts on this, but she put it so well, I'm just going to link to hers:

Lisa's Take on Writing Contests
But I have to add to number 2: don't make your pitch too similar.

Don't get passed over because your pitch is "just another..." Focus on being similar in format while still standing out in uniqueness. (Look at me - giving advice when I got passed over while entering the contests Lisa got picked in! :) )
Now that you know why entering those contests are a good idea, check out my Contests and Events page for a few coming up.
