I've also run across a TON of contests lately.  A couple have ereaders up for grabs.  I'm not entering these (saving the magic for another day, LOL) but thought I'd share the links nonetheless:

Justine's Contest is closed to entries, but you should check out the top 10 finalists...should be a hoot.

MissK read this too me the other night with such feeling.  I wish you could have heard her. Not sure where she got her idea for this, but it should be safe to eat/drink while you're reading this one.  No kissing scenes in here.

I lived in a small village; my family’s village. We had my little home, and it was my family. I was the special one. I was the special one because I was the only child. I didn’t have any siblings. Mom and Dad were the only other people living in my house. Lots of people lived around in my village. 

One fact was that we were all poor, struggling to survive. We hadn’t been on the news yet. But we knew news because we only had little TVs. I struggled with my life, because I didn’t have school, I didn’t have friends. Mom said you have to look hard enough to find the right person. I couldn’t do that though. I can’t look hard. 

All there was outside of this old village was straw houses that were strong, dusty dirt instead of concrete and clothes’ lines to dry and wash clothes. Boy, were we struggling. We tried so hard to stay alive. It just couldn’t happen. Many people on my village had died of hunger.


Last day to enter the Mother's Day Give Away!!
