Subject: RE: Songwriting Contests
M Ted, Your operatta sounds like fun. I bet there's someone out there who will be interested.

GoinDownTheRoadFeelin'Bad, I think that competition can be friendly, and that's the kind I like. I knew two of the five contestants (not including myself) and I was genuinely happy that they won what they did, and it didn't matter that they came in ahead of me. I was honored to have been a finalist!! That was my thrill. Plus, I have my song now, and people like it. So the whole contest experience was great for me. Now if I had really wanted to win I would have been extremely disappointed!! I guess it all depends on your outlook.
