Hey guys...this is going to sound really terrible but I need everyone's help with something. My school publishes a literary magazine and I want to enter it. However, last time I picked my own sumissions, various people told me I didn't send in my best writing. So...I need to pick three of my best pieces of writing and clean them up enough to hopefully get in the magazine. It shouldn't be too hard except that I'm in a bit of a time crunch since the deadline is March 1st.

I know many of you are familiar with my writing and it'd be a huge help if you could tell me which pieces of mine you think stand any chance at all. The competition isn't too harsh but I'm a freshman so that's an automatic strike against me.

Anyways, if you guys could help out in any way I'd be forever indebted to you. Thanks and take care. =D

stumbling blocks
Unfortunately, I have that in another contest and simultanious submissions aren't allowed for this contest. I liked the Valentine's Day one myself...especially after you helped me clean it up (something I never gave you due credit for). I am indebted to you for that. =D

The last contest I was in here at the school I did enter a poem that got a high ranking and positive comments here. The only judge response I received was that it felt "tired". *scratches head* So, I thought maybe I'd look for some more faceted input.

Thanks for your suggestion, though. =D

Yeah I did Penelope! I commented on the actual poem...I'm gonna go through and clean it up the best I can to make it clear and possibly post it here (in the comments) or in a new blog entry. Thank you very much...this is really important to me and your help is very, very appreciated. =D

Same to you ark...I hope you got the rest you needed I know I got mine.

Hey...I don't mean to be whiny, but anyone else got any suggestions? I'm getting down to the last minute here (entries ar due March 1st), and I'd totally adore any other imput. =D

Hey, sorry I didn't catch your comment on here sooner! I actually decided to use In a Hole (now retitled, "Snow Game" and posted in my latest blog entry). I couldn't use God Shed His Grace on Thee because it's in another competiton right now and the contest I'm submitting too is very picky about simultanious submissions. Arg. =/

Anyways, thank you very much for your kind words. They mean alot Bob. =D
