I'm currently up to my elbows with my 2013 Nicholl Fellowship entry, but a free contest with a $25,000 prize is mighty tempting. Really wish I had heard about it in November. I have a pilot idea on the back burner, but I doubt it would be ready for the March 15th deadline. The last thing I need right now is distraction. Great opportunity though...
