I have been known to emphatically say I will never enter another chapter contest again. Ever. Nothing can change my mind.
So what am I doing? Yeah, getting a synopsis ready for a contest.
Why am I doing this?
I could say I want to get this ms in front of an editor or agent judge. But that really isn't the answer.
The truth is, I have a competitive streak I do not like to acknowledge. My dh is blatantly competitive and is unbearable when he loses. I am much too refined for such shenanigans.
I want to win. I don't care if the prize is a stale donut, I want to win. I cannot resist the call for competition. Is it worth the price that it takes on my ego? No, probably not, but I'm not wisest of creatures at times. Hence my third child. But I can't resist the lure, the call to competition.
