Some of you know or have figured out that I am aspiring writer. Duh! I don’t say “author” because I feel (my opinion) an author is someone who is in print. Someone who has successfully made the journey through queries, writing a synopsis, rejections, editing from Hell, and tears. Lots of tears…and I’m not there yet. “Yet” being the keyword in that statement. I am trying and to try you must participate. So, I put a piece in a competition and lost! How awesome is that!!! I lost!
I know you are looking at this like I have lost my mind- I have but that was long before I even wrote a book. I’m good with losing because I couldn’t lose if I didn’t try. I put it out there. I tried! Do you have any idea how hard it is to put your soul on the line? To be judged in any way? I crossed over that barrier and laid my work at the feet of those who “know.” They took this journey and are guiding me in the “write” direction. LOL! See what I did there? Right vs Write? Never mind.
I was in it but didn’t win and that’s awesome.
I did well but didn’t win and that’s cool.
I set my fear of judgement aside and didn’t win and I am so proud of myself.
As a prize for losing…I entered two more competitions.
