Opportunities in the Great Big Literary World- Last One for 2010!

Song of the Day: Merry Christmas Baby by Hanson


   Hello all! Hope everyone had a great holiday! Just one more Christmas song! It's the last set of opportunities for 2010. Make it count! How's everyone coping with the holidays anyway? I for one am extremely busy! My sister's getting married so in addition to running around with her, I have family coming in from around the US and Trinidad! My family's house is quite noisy! I'll have a little bit of quiet when I get back to my own apartment for a few days, so I intend to take advantage of that and get some writing done before the year is over. That will only be for a few days though. I'll be back at my family's house by the end of the week. Well enough about that, take a look at the opportunities I've found.
