Post #158 – Women’s Memoirs, Writing Prompt – Kendra Bonnett and Matilda Butler
“It was a dark and stormy night…” That opener may have worked for Snoopy, but it’s no way to start our memoirs and fiction.
Lynn Goodwin of Writer Advice has a new contest she asked us to announce to all of you. She’s asking you to submit the opening chapter or paragraphs of your unpublished manuscript for a chance to win…$250.
So let me give you a few more details:
Title/Subject: Scintillating Starts
Deadline: October 15, 2012
Entry Fee: $20
Good luck…and get to writing.

AWE Registration Announcement
Okay, this is important. If you have bought your copy of Writing Alchemy: How to Write Fast and Deep…and if you have registered your copy, which gives you free Charter Membership in the Association for Writing Excellence (AWE)…then I have an important announcement.
When you register your copy, you need to open the email that comes to you telling you to confirm your registration. This is important. Aweber protects your name and email by confirming signups.
So if you haven’t confirmed, check the email. If you think you haven’t SEEN the email, then check your junk or spam file. Depending on how tightly you’ve set your email security, it’s possible for the email to get diverted.
If you’re concerned and can’t find the email, you can always send me an email and I’ll help you. I think I can send you a second confirmation email.
