This Is What Money Looks Like

Hi there loyal reader:

If you are looking for your work to get published in one of the best journals in the U.S., I encourage you to send your work in to The Missouri Review's annual Editor's Prize Competition. If your story wins (or is a finalist), THEY PAY YOU a lot of money! And if you don't win, your entry fee of $20 earns you a year's subscription to the magazine.

The deadline is October 1st.

This is not one of those magazines that only publishes the work of known writers. TMR really does publish, nourish and support writers at every stage of their careers. So why not let it be you?

Do it! Right now. Go ahead... I'll wait.

In case you forgot, this is what money looks like:

Thank you. Adieu.

P.S. In case you forgot, this is what love looks like:

Pay Attention

This is from last week's New York Times Book Review. The reviewer was writing about Christopher Hitchens' most recent book, Mortality, which was written mostly as he was dying. It says a thing I have been trying to say without ever actually saying it for years.

It's kind of hard to read, I know.

Here's what it says:

"If there is anybody known to you who might benefit from a letter or a visit, do not on any account postpone the writing or the making of it. The difference made will almost certainly be more than you have calculated."
