Michelle features an eclectic selection of posts each week. But one of her regular features, which really intrigues me, is her monthly Write-Away Contest.
The theme of this month's contest is "Food." OK, I'm the first to admit that I'm no Paula Deen. But it just so happens that I've recently written about Ben & Jerry's, the Nectar of the Gods, in a critically acclaimed (OK, by the 12 bloggers who commented, anyway) post, "The Ben & Jerry's Stressbusters Diet."
I encourage y'all to enter Michelle's write-away contest this month, & every month. She's doing a good thing for the craft of writing, the art of blogging & for those of us who wish to tune up our skills.
Some of us write to relieve stress. Some of us eat Ben & Jerry's New York Super Fudge Chunk. If it's all the same to y'all, I'd rather do both. Although I'd hazard a guess that the writing part of this equation is probably better for my health. Unless it engenders stress...but that's a story for another day.
