A submission, step by step
Today I phoned up and paid for my submission to the Mslexia poetry competition. The deadline's at the end of the month. I'll make the actual submission later -- right now, the girls are still on their spring holiday from school, and it's all I can do to make a phone call for 5 minutes without interruption. What I like about the Mslexia comp is that I imagine about a thousand other poet-mothers, all eeking out 5 more minutes to work on their poems, while their children get up to god knows what in the background. We go, girls!
