Michael Carr, (who’s only the coolest literary agent answering questions in AW’s forum), is part of Beyond Words: Twitter Pitch Contest!!!
These are the rules posted on the blog:
1) The contest is now live!
2) It will be capped at the first 75 entries or, if we don’t get 75 entries, it’ll cut off at Midnight GMT on the 7th March.
3) You have to be a follower of my blog to enter.
4) You have to blog about this contest and post your link along with the twitter pitch. (If you don’t have a blog, then Twitter or Facebook will do. But only if you don’t have a blog – not instead).
5) Alongside your 140 twitter pitch (you’ll be disqualified if it’s longer) you’ll be asked to submit the first three sentences of your manuscript – so make sure they’re polished and ready to go!
6) Once the contest opens, it’ll be first come first serve to enter. Anything after 75 entries won’t be counted.
Remember, Michael Carr is looking for any age any genre. And works should be completed if he was to request the full manuscript, but you may take the risk without a finished manuscript if you choose.
Good luck! And don’t forget to include a link to your blog post/twitter/facebook with your entry. And I’ll allow posts to be made any time before you actually comment here. Including the same day. Please use the format as below:

Now, hurry up! Go! Follow Beyond Words blog, post your entry and make your dreams come true 🙂
Most writers suffer from chronicle back pain and who can blame us? We sit in front of a computer countless hours. We seldom exercise (I know I don’t) and weak muscles do increase back pain and the risk of a serious injury.
After feeling acute back pain for a couple of days in a row, I decided to search the web for lower-back stretching exercises:

Also, I stole my husband’s cushioned chair which worked wonders for my back.
