What you do think about it
Well, as I have a tiger mom who encouraged me to participate in many competitions in different phases of my life, and I also found I like pushing my boundaries through competitions, thus, I probably enjoy them. One such contest that I would like to talk about is the writing contests held by a famous literature magazine.
Since I read the novel ‘Jude the Obscure’ in high school I had indulged in the arts of Thomas Hardy. I like his books because of the feelings that is able to stir in me and even makes me heart-wrenching. Meanwhile, I was inspired by Hardy to be a writer and tried to write some novels related to suspense fiction and historical romance.
One day I noticed an advertisement in a literature magazine that a writing contest would be held on within 2 months. The entry fee would be 200 yuan and the prizes would be given to the first three writers. Besides, the genre of your works is limited in fiction. I had a passion for writing and I that’s why I thought to participate it.
Some winners became famous through this contest such as Yuhua, Sutong,and Han shaogong, who are outstanding in writing and occupying places in Chinese Literary world.
Actually, I am a green hand in writing fictions while I want to learn writing skills and make up creative stories. It’s true that each one will try to stand out in this contest, so the first thing I should mention myself is to avoid falling into some traps in writing. For instance, to avoid starting with weather, to challenge every word of mine, to form an unexpected structure and reasonable ending for it. I mean, for me, although it’s hard to gain the award among thousands professional writers, I could practice my skills in this contest and find the gap between me and other competitors. In a nutshell, competitions are the critical drivers of my performance and innovation, I would rather grasp each opportunity and try it, pushing myself, like this writing contest.
