We always like to tell you about various writing competitions. Submitting your work to local, regional, national or international contests can spur your writing career along. Even when you are a “Finalist” which Brenda and I were for “Success with Writing,” it lifted our spirits and our sales. Not everyone can win, but you learn from the process. ~MDH
