Burn My Letter! contest

Captain's Log, Stardate 11.20.2005

Thanks so much to all my fabulous prayer warriors. I'm feeling better now. I'm finally able to sleep through the night with only a little coughing. The fact my coughing had made it hard to sleep made it doubly difficult for me to recover.

I'm still not sure if I'll be able to have surgery on Wednesday. I'll have to see.

Got more revisions done on my suspense last night. It felt great to write after so many days sick as a dog.

BURN MY LETTER! Contest on

I belong to, an online writing & critiquing community. It's a secular site, but it's a very positive community of writers giving and receiving feedback.

They are holding a Burn My Letter! Contest for anyone who has received a rejection from a publisher, agent, or a writing job employer this year (dated anytime from January 1st, 2005 to December 31st, 2005).

You mail in a copy of your rejection letter(s) and get your name put in a bowl for each rejection letter you enter in the contest. At the end of the year, they'll hold a random drawing for prizes, and burn a small piece of all those rejection letters in a New Year's bonfire.

It's a fun contest, it's free, and it makes people feel better about getting rejected.

You must belong to in order to participate. Membership is free, and you receive a free email address as well as a portfolio for displaying your writing. If you sign up, please use this link and register from this page so that I get cyber-kudos for referring you. :)
