Writing Contest - Again

Writing prompt:

Again. Build your contest entry around that single word. Did she/ he give you a second chance? What did you do with it? Are you guilty of nostalgia and returned to the scene of your prime? Did you Sisyphus your boulder? Reload? Climb back into the ring or on the horse? But here is your challenge: Sinacism is a cyn. It is unacceptable to link the word “not” with “again”. Inspire us. Again.

We have commissioned artist and sculptor Ed Coonce (edcoonce.com) to create a trophy worthy of our re-launch and of your efforts. Trophy is mounted on a plaque with your name boldly engraved where no name has gone before. The winner (or his or her designate) also receives a 1-page author website—a $99 value— which we will host for a year through Pub Pimp (pubpimp.com). We want to pimp you up!
