How do you spell AWESOME? C-O-N-T-E-S-T

The ladies of Operation Awesome have a few things in common.

1) We all love writing.
2) We all love reading.
3) We all love writers.
4) We all love readers.
5) We all love CONTESTS.

There are other things, too, but we have to save something for all those author interviews we'll do when we're rich and famous. *gets glassy-eyed as daydreams take over*

Okay, whoa. Sorry. I'm back. For now, let's focus on the CONTESTS.

There are three going on right now:

1) All White for Twilight fan fiction contest (prime your 200 Twilight-related words and enter before Oct. 31st)

2) Michelle McLean's Pleased to Meet You contest (comment on this post and follow to enter)

3) Okay, this one isn't going on yet.... It's going to be epic, though. And I want you to be ready for it when it posts. So dust off your one-line pitches and get out the polish. You're going to be needing them soon.

For the faint-of-Mondays, here's your to-do list in pictures:

Write a little sumpin-sumpin for the Twilight contest

And get to work polishing your one-line pitch.

I know it's Monday. Sorry bout that. 

This will cheer you up (especially you, Michelle)...

Hee hee. I thought you'd appreciate some Belle footage. Unfortunately for me, the part of that song that sticks in my mind is always,

This is so awesome!

Love the clip from Beauty & the Beast. I just got this in the HD version--it's one of my favorites!!! :D

I'm looking forward to your next pitch contest, especially after the success of your last one (and thanks, OA, for helping put my friend's success in motion).

Love this clip! My daughter came running into the room when she heard it!

*shakes finger* Oh no you di'nt tease us with that last one! ;) (Is that how you spell "didn't" the wrong way, all slangy and stuff? I honestly don't know!)

Can't wait to see what you guys have in store! =)

I already love and follow Michelle, although I really do need to visit her more often. :-)

Thanks for the contest links and heads-up.

lbdiamond- It must be simply stunning in HD! So jealous!

Angelica- We're super stoked for your friend, too! Featuring her story this Friday!! Good thing you told her about the contest!

Renae- LOL! My son was all up in my grill when I was making sure the video embed worked. Kids and Disney songs--it's magic.

coffeelvnmom- Oh yes I DID tease you with that last one! LOL. You know the drill. Be prepared. That's all I can say (the owl is watching and he can read lips).

Shannon- You are very welcome.

Good luck, everyone, and have fun! Contests=fun, after all.
