kali, in the financial business world, I was a really great recruiter. Know why? I believe in showing the most opportunities to the most people possible. Our opportunities are the market and contest listings. Quick Fiction is one of those opportunities. I love helping others achieve their goals. That is my motivation. When it comes to my personal submissions, I use one of my recruiting and sales philosophies. The person that gets the most no's wins. Go get 'em.
