…only instead of paying lots of money to take that class, I could possibly GET lots of money from writing this. I just finished the application for the Gift of Freedom Award from A Room of Her Own. This organization gives out an award every two years to help a woman writer accomplish her writing goals. And the award is $50,000 over two years. Yeah, that’s a LOT of money. I have probably the tiniest possibility of ever winning this prize, but hey, I mean, why not try? For 35 bucks and a few essays and writing samples, I might as well try and convince people that I should be given an award to be financially stable enough to write as a career. Seriously, it would be insanely awesome if I got this, or even if I got a runner-up prize, which is $5,000. Anyway, that’s what I’ve been up to the past couple of days. Now back to the actual writing of my book.
It’s like writing senior seminar all over again… October 29, 2012
