I got my fairytale-themed entry in yesterday with about two hours to spare!
For those who may be wondering what I’m talking about, I wrote about fairytales (Cinderella, in particular) and the online magazine I’m submitting to here.
It felt good to submit something again; I hadn’t submitted for anything for quite a few years, actually. I think the last time was in middle school, when I entered a writing contest and won!
I didn’t stop entering because I stopped believing in myself or anything. I stopped entering because I stopped making time for writing and stopped caring about what my writing could be.
I’m glad that I remedied these wrongs and returned to creative writing. It’s a great outlet and I enjoy sharing my work with others. I’m hoping to have more work up here soon, in fact.
