|Spend a day or two thinking about the contest and your ideas, then ask yourself: Will everyone else be probably writing along the same lines?
If the answer is yes, look for ways to make your idea/entry different enough to stand out. When you've hit upon the best way to do it, you can then start writing.
4)- Have You Been Writing Regularly? Nothing beats continuous writing practice. Although other people might not notice, you *know* when your writing is growing limp and dry.
So if you want to stay in good enough shape to join contests anytime, set aside at least 5 minutes a day for writing exercises -- even if it's just a short description of your gruelling grocery list.
