SoWrite.Us Competition: Best First Chapter
Unbridled optimism. I don't know about you, but here At Incoming Bytes I like to believe that hope springs eternal from proactive optimists. Proactive optimists, worth repeating. Horseshoes and four-leaf clovers are lucky. "Holes-in-one" happen. We believe good stuff does happen to those who wait, and sometimes luck of the draw is just that, short straw, long straw, heads, tails spin-of-the-bottle for a kiss. Luck is magic and illusion, balancing on the thin edge of life itself.
Sometimes it pays to get proactive and jump in feet first,get in it to win it, or die trying.
At SoWrite.us.com my entry in the November Fiction " Best First Chapter" contest created by Jim Bessey was successfully submitted without a hitch. Didn't even have to die trying!
Wow! In return, we received some great news. It went better than usual for me. Proactivism worked!
I was amazed to learn,-- my very own entry, From Raggs: The Bent Man
-----was awarded first prize ...$50.00 !! Wow!
Did I get to see the cash?
You bet! For contest doubters, you will be happy to know that prize money offers from SoWrite.us are real. The cash arrived almost within the hour. Thanks, Jim!

We must congratulate co-finalists, Glory Lennon and Teresa DePoy --and all other competitors for for their wonderful entries. Special thanks to judges Amanda and Tamara for their hard work and particularly difficult decision. It's so hard to make a thin dime stand on edge!

Maybe unbridled proactive optimism isn't such a bad thing after all?
Is that Incoming I hear?
