Get the hell out of Corporate America

I'm starting this blog as a commitment to myself to get out of corporate america.  I am going to enter as many online contests as I can for a year and see if I can actually make a living doing it.   I don't know what's going to happen by the end of this year, but it's GOT to be better than timesheets, cubicles and conference calls.

This week I got first place in an online commercial writing contest for Benjamin Moore paint and won $1,000.  Nice!
I entered another submission on the same site for a Barbie campaign and got like 29th place...which would be fine, if my idea wasn't totally Amazeballs.   It was a total tear jerker.  I think the judging committee was on Barbie crack in the Barbie dream house.
I'm gunna take a look on-line this week to see if there are other creative contests and sweepstakes that I can enter.
