Now this is getting ridiculous...

First Modern Drunkard rejects me by omission (see below) and now this--I entered three poems in the SonnetWriters.com annual contest some weeks ago. The deadline was October 15, and the guidelines said winners would be announced no later than November 30. But no word yet, nothing on the website even referring to the contest.

I have to ask: is it me?

Is there something about me that just makes people not want to respond? Is the cold shoulder always preferable to communication where I and my sonnets are involved? I don't know, but it's starting to make me self-conscious.

Anyway, as soon as I hear anything, I'll post it here. I just hope I don't have some kind of voodoo curse that's causing everything I touch to go dead. If I do, sorry Modern Drunkard and SonnetWriters--I know not what I do.

UPDATE: The SonnetWriters 2007 Annual Contest was canceled. Good to know.
