- Wedding: June 2015
Some of you might know that I’m big on writing. I’m self pubbing a book in June but in the meantime I thought I’d best get some practice in.
I’ve just finished penning ‘With a whisper’, a short story I plan on entering into a writing magazine’s monthly contest. I don’t expect to win, or even place – my goal is to be shortlisted and nothing more.
I have entered this contest before two years ago but my attempt was so shockingly bad that now I can’t read it without feeling embarassed. But I’ve gotten a thousand times better since then and I really think I’m in with a chance at shortlisting!
I’m even requesting a personalised critique – this will pretty much define whether or not I’m ready to put my work out there. I hope it is. I really do. It’s scary though because if it comes back and says I’m an awful writer, I might just lose all my confidence.
So I guess I’m just asking for happy thoughts! Not only that, but since this is me taking another tiny step towards my dream, I would LOVE to hear some stories about what other bees are doing to chase their own ambitions!!
