The winners of the Copyblogger Twitter Haiku Contest have been announced.  Suffice it to say, I wasn’t one of them.  Not that it mattered to me, though.  I don’t like writing contests for the contest-y aspects of them – the pitting of writers against each other in competition and the whole prize thing.  Rather, I like writing contests because they give me an excuse to write something within a structure and they give me a deadline.  Nothing like someone else’s rules and a specific time parameter to get me writing.  A good brain workout.  Helps keep me mentally nimble.  Hopefully, it’ll also prevent me from getting Alzheimer’s.
