*Right*   February's Contest is: "Short Shots: Official WDC Contest






Do you have big plans for yourself this year? Will you finally finish that story that's been haunting you for so long? Will you try your hand at a brand new genre? Do you want to read and review a certain number of items by April? Will you take that first step toward self-publishing your latest masterpiece? Set some goals and resolutions for the new year and you could win big prizes!

The rules are simple: write a letter to yourself and tell you what your goals are for 2014!

Entries will be judged on:
*Bullet* Creativity: Be creative with your letter; it's to your benefit! You should be able to look back at your goals throughout the year and become instantly inspired by your own creative words of wisdom and encouragement.
*Bullet* Believability: Don't just throw your goals into a mindless list with no explanations or encouragement. Be sincere with yourself; this is you you're talking to!
*Bullet* Feasibility: Your goals should be achievable ones and to the point. Don't just tell yourself that you want to "read more" or "write more". Set some real goals with real achievable numbers and dates; give yourself something concrete to work toward!
*Bullet* Spelling/Grammar: We will absolutely be checking for spelling and grammar mistakes. If you're not one for spell checking or editing your first drafts, maybe you should add that into your letter to yourself for the new year. Wink


Your letter must be:
*Bullet* Started with "Dear Me,": Since you are the recipient of your letter, it must begin with the words "Dear Me,".
*Bullet* A Static Item: Create your letter as a Static Item and keep it in your portfolio. Send us the item ID number of the item you wish to submit using this survey form. Even if you don't win this contest, you now have a point of reference for yourself for the rest of 2014!
*Bullet* 2000 words or less: Word count must be provided at the bottom of the item or your entry will be disqualified.
*Bullet* Rated 13+ or lower: The contents of your letter must fall at or below a rating of 13+.
*Bullet* Submitted One Time Only: You may only enter this contest using one letter, so make it a good one!
