Help, I'm trying to win a writing contest

I love blogging, but it doesn't pay the bills. From time-to-time I contemplate the idea of getting back to writing as a vocation, rather than just as a hobby. If past history is any indication, my urge to earn will soon pass and I will happily go back to writing just for fun. 

Truth is, I love writing. I think money is just a necessary evil. I was serious enough about writing for a living, to enter a contest though, which is why I'm  asking CH Musings readers for assistance.

While this is a writing competition, it also has elements of an American Idol-contest where anyone can register, read, and rate. This new version of the 3R's will allow the contest winner, the one with the most rating stars, to receive $50. 

If anyone is so inclined, please go to, register, read my story, "Vacation Trepidation," and rate as you see fit. 

All writers are between the ages of 40 and 65 years old, a place I've been for quite some time. My story will compete with four others. They are all very short and are easy-to-read. The contest lasts only for a week; it started Monday and will run until Sunday. 

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. I'll report the results when the contest concludes.
