On throwing myself down mountains

Sometimes you need to hurl yourself down a mountain.

I found this out on out Ski trip when my husband took me down my first black run. It was terrifying but I survived!

So I decided to throw myself down a different kind of mountain. I entered the first 250 words of Emma Undone,  into the secret agent competition over at Miss Snark’s First Victim. It was even more terrifying than the black run, but I survived.

Actually I did better than surviving, I was one of the ten winners. YAY!

So if you have your own mountain waiting for you, I highly recommending going down it or up it if you prefer. To quote Dr Seuess  

“And will you succeed, yes you will indeed, 98 and 3/4% guaranteed.  Congratulations today is your day, your mountain is waiting so get on you way!

Woohoo!! 🙂 I missed seeing the contest this time – she's got some great contests – and you get great feedback from them. I usually comment but it's been too busy with the laptop being down and all.
