The WritersWeekly Quarterly 24-Hour Short Story Contest
I just wanted to say how much I enjoy these contests. It doesn’t even matter to me the outcome because I see it as a learning experience. After I submit the stories to you I refine them and use them as assignments in my college class. Yes, we old people go to college, too. After the gentle critiques from my fellow students, I revise them again. The last story (for the summer 2006 contest), about the kids on the bus and the black bag, was revised and used as a submission for our local Writers of Kern 2007 Anthology. So thank you for stretching me and making me work!
All the best,
Check Your Country’s Bad Check Laws!
Re: When Customers Write Bad Checks
Check out your laws regarding NSF cheques and fraud before sending a collection letter because here in Canada, once contact is made after an NSF cheque is issued, between the parties, it is no longer considered fraud but a matter of credit. Here, one has to contact the police directly, without first giving the person a chance to rectify. It is the chance to rectify that changes it from fraud to a credit issue.
WritersWeekly Readers Care!
Whaddaya think, Ang? Is it as simple as, Writers Weekly readers totally rock? I get such great fan mail whenever you run one of my pieces. Of course, since the emails come from fellow writers, they are specific about why my words moved them; most gratifying.
Writing for WritersWeekly is a really fine gig. Thanks for the opportunity.
