    I am happy to submit one entry into the 2nd edition of Rave Soup For The Writers Soul Anthology. The deadline is today!! As some of you know I won in two categories in the 2014 edition, not expecting to win anything. It was a pleasant surprise and a validation that my work passed the test. Good luck to everybody who enters.

      I wasn’t planning on entering the Rave Soup Anthology 2nd Edition but I saw a tweet from John F., one time too many today and decided to do it. I’m such a procrastinator. I won last year so why not? I’m working on mine now.
