Thanks, Lynette! Words to the wise are always worth sharing. I think I’ve been taken in a time or two.

You are welcome. I had planned to enter one just this month. Reading this post changed my mind.

Yeah, everyone remembers the “poetry.com” days. Complete gibberish would make it to the “semi-finals.”
Thanks for reminding us! I’ve only done a couple of contests, so far with no calamities. But I’ll be extra careful in the future.
