As any writer will tell you there are times when the words flow and others when each word written feels like it has been torn from your soul.
I often have days of both.
One thing that seems to free up the gates of inspiration is when I am writing about something that I am passionate about, surprising hey.
A month or so ago I received and email from the company i worked for telling me about a competition that was being run by Irwin Mitchell Solicitors and KIDS. They challenged us to write a piece about disability, either from living with one or caring for someone who had one.
Of course this set me off and before long I had emailed my entry in.
Now this was rather surprising for me as I normally hold back in fear of rejection but as part of my nothing ventured, nothing gained new outlook I decided why not.
Well imagine my joy to receive an email telling me that I was joint winner of the 18 and over category.
I have won an amazing prize of a Kindle Fire but I will also get to see my words in a book they are making to raise money for KIDS.
I am super excited about it all and cannot wait to get my own copy.
I”m so glad that i didn’t allow my fear and insecurities stop from entering this time.
