*This idea has been brewing in me for a couple years now, and wow, it feels good to see an idea become reality!
As for the amazing international opportunity, look down.
Free trip to Tibet by writing a 1-2 page story on the theme of transformation? Too good to be true?(It’s legit–I helped organize the contest.) The men who run Extravagant Yak Travel are my dear friends. I can’t express how awesome they are and how much they do for local Tibetans. The winner (s) get a pretty sweet deal and by just entering YOU get to help Tibetans too! So if you have a story to tell, get on it! They want to hear and spread it! You just might end up on the roof of the world!
Check it out @ Extravagant Yak
Friends, there is a right time for everything–for your writing breakthrough, to find your agent, for your novel to come into the world, for it to cross oceans….& for fun writerly challenges, contests, & projects. For those of us crazy enough to dive into the writing & publishing world, I want to say, Don’t give up. Good & right things take time. You’re strong enough. Just keep going. Just keep writing. Keep querying. Your time will come!
Nova, signing off.
