I ask a lot of questions here, so i thought I could share one of my last success stories.
In my school, we had writer tournament. The person who writes the best story (novel, poem,…, Whatever you want), wins. I thought “alright, I sent a story of mine that I wrote almost a year ago.”. The tournament didnt have a lots of participants but I still was scared to get last placed because later on I heard that we could go to our teachers and they would check our grammar and stuff like that. I didn’t do that.
Before the announcement, or while, I listened the “hand of glory” field. Then they started to read the stories. Mine was first, my biggest Nightmare because I thought that would mean I am last placed. But then I got money and understood that I won. A lots of classmates came to me and told me how good my stories was, even a woman that works with authors, gave me her email and told me I should sent her more of my stories.
