OK, I’m about to disappear for a week for my family reunion. In the meantime, here’s some homework for you readers. There’s an essay contest that you can enter. I mean it, you can do it. And the prize is big. You simply have to describe a true-life story in 2,000 words or less. Yes, that’s “or less.” It doesn’t have to be 2,000 words. It can be shorter. You can win $1,000 in the monthly prize and be eligible to win $250,000 (you heard right) in the grand prize in December if it’s a really great story. There is no entry fee. Just sign up at Field Report. Everyone has a really great story in them. Tell yours. This one has to be true. Here’s the link. Go read more. You can enter as many essays as you like. I hope someone I know wins. I’ll be entering some essays next week when I get back from the beach! Check it out at FIELDREPORT - SECOND CONTEST:

Oh, man. Homework?! You are one tough blog buddy. Hey, I see one hitch to it - you have to read and rank at least five other entries for each entry you make. That's right, Grading Papers. Hmm. I can see this could be another website/online activity that takes control of my consciousness for hours at a time......aaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!
