Miss Snark's August Secret Agent - 2 submission windows on August 15th. If you read my blog, I KNOW you read Miss Snark and know about Secret Agent contests. But I have to post about contests I know about. It's a compulsion! As always it's the first 250 words judged by a secret agent. Recently I entered one of her contests and her email response bot is tough to get by. It REALLY has to be in a plain text email or it counts all the HTML code as words. For some reason, it kept saying I was going over even after I switched it over to plain. I hope you have better luck!
