Random Writing Tip #1

I’m not claiming to be an expert, but from time to time I’ll share tips that work for me.

Random Writing Tip #1 - Competition deadlines
I forgot to enter an RWAus comp. Entries were due last Friday. I even had an ms ready, but my wisdom tooth crisis blotted out my memory. (The jury's out on whether the extraction of molars increases or depletes mental capacity - in my case it seems to be the latter.)

If you're forgetful like me, you need bells, whistles and flashing neon lights to keep on top of things. Set your computer's alarm on Outlook, iCal or similar to prod you two weeks before a competition's due-in date.

More hints to come...
