I was going to title this post "over commitment" and then realized, right now, I should really be committed.
Many of you know I'm coordinating my local RWA chapter's writing contest this year, and so far, we've received 152 entries, and I'm expecting more to roll in over the week as they had to be postmarked by last Saturday.
Each of these need to be judged by 3 judges, so allocating over 450 score sheets to judges is, shall we say, a nightmare. (If anyone out there reading this is willing to help judge, let me know. :-) I have almost enough judges... but a few are having to take on more entries than I'd like.)
And what arrives in my e-mail today? (after 6 arrived in my postal mailbox) A contest entry. Ah, I think. Disqualified. The e-mail entries had to be in by midnight on Saturday.
BUT NO!!! I freaking volunteered to be the coordinator for one of the categories for the Golden Pen contest, too, and they're starting to roll in. AND, I'm the coordinator for one category for the Stiletto contest, too.
WHEN WILL I EVER FINISH MY MANUSCRIPT????
(Send the men with the straight jacket now, please.)
