Everyone has a story and everyone wants their story told.
I know this because when I tell people I write, they ask me what I write and before I can finish answering, they tell me about how interesting their story is and that they are thinking about writing it.
Go for it!
I completely agree that everyone’s story is interesting and worth telling.
*No eye rolling, please.*
If you are one of the people who want to write but don’t know where to begin, how about a writing contest?
Yes, Lorian is related to Ernest Hemingway. She’s his granddaughter!
Now, the deadline is May 1st, so you don’t have much time. There is also a $15 entry fee but you could win $1,500 (smaller prizes for second and third places – *think positive though*).
If you haven’t written at all, a writing contest may not be the best place to start. If though you have written something and were waiting for an opportunity to debut it – go for it!
Here’s your chance to put pen to paper…wait, I mean, fingers to keyboard and have your (short) story told!
You can do it!!
**I have no affiliation with the Lorian Hemingway Competition. They are not a sponsor but if talking about it helps my chances at winning, I won’t be disappointed!
**Deadline too close for you? Here are some additional contests:
