AWAI Writing Challenge:
My Guilty Pleasure
We all have them – those little rewards that help get us through a busy day or a crazy week.
It could be as simple as a pint of Häagen-Dazs amaretto almond crunch before bed. Or poring through the National Enquirer with your feet up for 15 minutes before the kids get home from school.
If you've been really good, perhaps cutting out on a Wednesday afternoon to play the back nine at your favorite course. Or sneaking outside to enjoy a good cigar. Maybe hitting the local spa for a fancy pedicure.
So how do you unwind? What do you do to relax (that others don't necessarily know about)? Has it become a routine, something that you look forward to and keeps you going?
Send your 1,000-word (or less) essay to me with "My Guilty Pleasure" in the subject line to AskKatie@awaionline.com.
Your secret will be out, but you'll have a chance to win a $100 American Express gift card …
One winner will be selected from all entries received. If it's you, you'll receive a $100 American Express gift card and have your essay published on the AWAI website.
All entrants will be recognized and will be sent a special gift for participating.
Deadline: October 31, 2010
Look for the winning entry in the Nov. 11th issue of Inside AWAI.
