I stayed up late last night to enter the Amazon Breakout Novel contest. It started at 12am CET so that meant 11pm for me. They only accept 5,000 entries so I was afraid that the slots would fill almost immediately by authors like me, hoping to be discovered.
I sat down in front of my computer a counted down the last 5 minutes.
At 11:00:01 pm, all circuits jammed. Apparently, my fears where shared by others.
I waited, and tried entering again. Still jammed.
Waited some more.
Thought about giving up.
Thought about giving up again.
Sat back down.
Lesson learned. Don't stop trying!!!!
