I find I'm much more competitive than I tend to think I am. Nothing like having someone to race with to make me try harder.
sillymagpie gave me this idea, to track it at Ticker Factory, which is kinda fun:
I went looking for a good Johnny Cash title to crib for a short story and found myself instead buying a disc for a couple of songs I don't already have. Still don't have a title for short story. I'm planning on entering a couple in the same contest I entered last year. That same competitive spirit gives me the whole "I will win!" attitude, although I know it's an astronomical chance, especially considering I'm not as good at writing short stories.
I still need a title. At least a working one. Chicken in Black isn't an option.
