Well, it’s official. I have submitted a spec to the writing competition. I had Pollo Loco for inspiration, wrote a bunch, sent the work to some people I trust, I slept 3 hours, ate coffee, and made the deadline. I turned it into the post office handler with care. He RE-ASSURED me three times that the envelope is postmarked electronically and manually.
Thank you post office men and women of the world, and the stuff you have to deal during deadline/application season. I am sure you see a lot of crazy.
