Writing Contests

Do you like to enter contests?
I don't.
In the writing world, there are many contests one could enter, should one choose to do so.
I've been thinking about it.
The benefits to entering a contest would be naturally, winning, or just getting your name out there, whether you win or place well, or just enter. Somebody will have read your work.
Apparently the judges feedback can be very helpful as well.
The downside is the hassle and the expense.
The hassle has been taken care of. A lot of contests now accept electronic entries.
I can do it all from the comfort of my desk!
This also cuts down on the expense, since I don't have to print out multiple copies of the chapters I'm sending, or pay for postage to send them!

So did I just run out of excuses?

Okay, I admit it.
I'm chicken.

But I'm going to do it anyway.
I think.

I entered.
Of course now I'm wishing I hadn't.
Oh well. Too late!!
