I’ve been having too much fun over the season to think about writing failures, lack of published works, or insecurity.
Don’t get me wrong. I’ve been writing. Working on my Nano project and adding words every day. Submitting when allowed and carrying on as if all is well.
I did get a favorable mention from the Writers and Illustrators of the Future contest and will get a certificate for my wall of fame. I’ll almost do anything to make myself feel special. Don’t judge me. Use my idea and keep a record of your success. It can be very important on gloomy not-so-secure days.
If you want to try the contest here’s some info for you. First, its free. Second, you need to be pretty new in the field of writing. So if you still consider yourself a new writer and write fantasy or scifi then go the link above to check out the rules. The reason I encourage you to try is simple. You’ll get exposure. You may win a great prize.
Like what you ask? Try $5000 on for size. That’s right 5000 bucks. That’s the grand prize for the year, and I did mention its free?
I wish you luck. I’ve tried twice. I know. That’s the sad part. Not that I lost, but that I still qualify. But it is also the good news, because I still have a shot at the winnings. If I’m going to lose I’d rather it be to someone I know. Brush off your work and get submitting. Hope to see you round the winning circle.
Next time’s the charm. 🙂
