Opportunities in the Great Big Literary World- June 10, 2013

Song of the Day: Wings by Little Mix

   Hello all! How was the weekend? I will be quite brief over the next couple of weeks due to a temporary change in my work schedule. I'm working extra days in order to take some much needed time off! I can't wait. I've been swamped lately, and I'm looking forward to getting some writing done over this break. I've been spreading myself thin and my own writing has suffered. Time to figure out a way to balance and get back on track. Hope my new series of prompts are helping you all. A new one will be posted this Friday. Check out the opportunities and submit your work somewhere, even if it is to just one market.
