Writing Update

I just wanted to post a quick update about my writing. I entered a writing contest over at The Clarity of Night. The contest was 250 words inspired by a photograph. I have to say, this was quite challenging for me. I had a hard time crafting a story that was only 250 words, but had a beginning, middle, and end. I will post my entry here tomorrow, or you can check it out at the site. I almost gave up a few times, but I am glad I was able to post an entry. I'm not really sure how well I did, but I am proud of myself for sticking with it.

I also received my prize today for the newspaper short story contest I won last week.  I am ineligible for the last chapter.  However, in the letter I received with my prize I received a letter from the editor of the newspaper asking me to help judge the final chapter.  I think I'm going to take them up on the offer.  It would be interesting to read the writing of the competition.

  1. Crap. I thought the due date was today. I even had a rough draft and everything. Fortunately my story wasn’t very good so I’m not missing out on any prizes I’m sure.

    I would definitely do the contest judging. That sounds like a blast.

  2. Thanks Sharon. I didn’t win, but you can’t win them all. The prize was in the process. I think I learned something.

    Kalbzayn, sorry you missed the due date. There will be other contests.

  3. Great stuff. I stop in here every now and then as a fellow wordpresser. And it’s great to see your success unfolding. Remember, it’s one step at a time. And go extra hard on all the entries you have to judge. You’ve earned it!
