Dude Write 25 : Phoning It In

Welcome to Dude Write!

We are thrilled to have you here, whether you are a Writer Dude, a Blogger Dude, a Reader Dude or a Fanatic of good writing. If you've stumbled upon us via a link and wondering what you've gotten yourself into, our Mission Statement should explain it all.

Who remembers when a phone call was 25¢?

Who remembers Travis Tritt's Here's a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares) song?

When was the last time you saw, much less used a pay phone?

When was the last time you saw or heard from Travis Tritt?

Coincidence? I don't think so.

So what can that possibly have to do with Dude Write?

Don't be Travis Tritt.  In all fairness, Mr. Tritt may be doing exactly what he wants and leveraging his fortunes from his song... But the point is continue to leave a legacy.  Your writing is something you should be proud of and we want to be every part of that here.  Spend the extra time to make your work great.

Don't phone it in.

Let's get going, to enter, please deposit a quarter in the slot before speaking  posting.
