Real Simple essay contest

  1. Hey kiddo. I didn't enter, but I did enter the other contest I posted earlier, the 5,000-word one. I actually took one of my MGs and edited it down to 5,000 words. It was a really fun exercise. I love that kind of editing. Taking 20,000-plus words and whittling it down to 5,000. Very challenging. Not sure it worked or not, but it was a ton of fun. How about you? You should enter.
