One of my dad’s favorite sayings is, “the worse the experience, the better the story.”
Let’s test that theory.
I’m giving away copies of my book in exchange for tales of epic professional mistakes.
To enter the contest, send me a story of Work Gone Wrong: instructive, embarrassing, hilarious, scary, or any combination thereof.
I’ll choose five winners based on empirical criteria of “good story”-ness (by which I mean, whichever ones I find most compelling). Knowing my readers, there’ll probably be more than five worth sharing, so I expect to dole out some honorable mentions as well.
The deadline is Friday, March 31st. I’ll announce winners on Monday, April 3rd.
(If you send me something, I’ll assume you’re fine with me sharing it with the world—with or without attribution, your choice—and possibly editing it for clarity/length.)
Now send me your stories! What’s the worst that could happen? 🙂
