I’ve got a doozy of an Independence Day story–and I’m hoping to get it in shape to win the contest offered by Women’s Memoirs, Matilda Butler and Kendra Bonnett’s “home base” for their work coaching, teaching, and writing from life.
Here’s the contest description:
Memoir Writing Contest #6 for 2011: Deadline is June 30, 2011. Memoir Writing Contest Theme: Independence Day. You might take this topic literally or figuratively. Let your mind wrap around a special July 4th and tell us about it. Or, you may have your own story of independence from a bad job or a bad marriage. Focus your story on independence. The winner(s) will be published in July.

The submission deadline is a motivation to write and polish, and winning a contest is a boost for any aspiring writer. Let’s get to work.
