Last week I uploaded a new short story on my other blog A Tale Of Short Stories, and was happy to see how much people actually liked it. I am still searching myself in each story I write, trying to find my own voice. I am trying to explore human relationships, in all aspects and so I try to have my stories translate that. Of course from time to time, I do deviate from this objective of mine and write something totally unrelated -- but I still try. 

If you have read my bucket list, you know that I want to take part in a writing contest at some point before I turn 27. Most of the contests out there are quite intimidating to be honest, and I don't feel like I am ready yet to take the plunge. Of course that is what I have been thinking and feeling these  past months/years. Of course this weekend when I uploaded my latest story and people have been responding to it positively, I felt so happy that I have been thinking: why not? Why not try out for a contest?

It has been three days now and this idea is looking better and better. I think I can always count on fear to hold me back, but until I try I cannot be sure of how things might go. And I want to try. This is why later this week, I plan on submitting two of my stories to this Short Story Contest hosted by RTÉ Guide/ Penguin Ireland. Getting some sort of feedback from professionals would already be an accomplishment. And that is all I am really going for at the moment.

I am quite excited just thinking of it. 
To think I will finally do it!
