I’ve never considered myself a lucky person. (For example, my lucky day is Friday the 13th).
If you recall, last year, I won a flyaway contest to Las Vegas by entering a random contest. I’ve won a few things day to day but that’s a pretty big one.
I also got a prize in the @Denisao44 and Fábio Coentrão contest – it’s not here yet… I’m so excited, I cannot wait to get it. :3
Recently, I’ve been (trying) to play a game called Gods and Heroes, Rome Rising. Trying because I really don’t have as much time as I’d like to play, but when I do get to, I rather enjoy it.
They’ve been running a few contests! There’s been a haiku contest and a correspondent contest.
I entered in the haiku contest to win an unlimited beta key first off. I won that, which I was horribly pleased about. I love knowing my writing is good enough to be able to compete.
This contest, however is slightly more of a bigger deal. The winner gets to fly TO Austin… spend time IN the studios, talk to everyone, and write for MOG.
And… I won that too. Which I’m blown away by. I know a few people that entered who are rather amazing writers, and for me to be picked over them is a massive boost to my self esteem.
So, May 11-13 (quite literally the week of my finals, so I can push them forward and have them due sooner), I will be in Austin, TX visiting Heatwave and meeting the G&H staff and getting a behind the scenes tour.
You can read the official press release and my interview here: Contest Winner!
Then (hopefully) at the beginning of June, I’ll be LA bound on my plot to take over the world and learn how to have fun again. (And just maybe get a slinky red dress.)
I love travelling, this is just so awesome right now. NAB was an absolute blast, which I cannot wait to finish writing about, but I had to get this out first!
