Saint Patrickís Day Contest



The ObjectiveA lot of my friends and fans, tell me that they always wanted to write a book, they just donít know how, or where to start or claim they donít have the time. Then they ask me how I do it. I just write, thatís how I do it. Itís the best answer that I can give. If you want to write, than write! So for this Saint Patrickís Day, I am holding a short story writing contest.
