Submit and commit
If you don't submit, you can't gripe about it later if your work doesn't get picked.
If you don't submit, you will never know if your work would have gotten picked.
You have trouble justifying the $35 entry fee, yet you'll think nothing of spending the same $35 on an impulse buy (for narrative purposes let's just pretend it's this).
If your gut is nagging you to submit a particular piece, just submit it. In the end, your work might get picked, it might not. But at least you know that gave it your best shot, and you can feel good about following through with it. (And that is worth more than the entry fee.)
You can't succeed if you don't try!
You just never know.
Just Do It!!!
