Well, I didn't win the Kingdom Pen Contest... I was eliminated after the first round of finalists, but I'm still tickled to have gotten that far! Thanks for the sweet encouragement where that was concerned.
But that contest made me hungry for more! I'm on the lookout for new writing contests & ways to stretch my creative muscles. (If you happen to find something, send a link my way!! I'll definitely check them out!) I'm just looking for ways to get experience and practice in... And hopefully all of it can help me out in the future.
For instance, there is a possibly of me being able to write for a local newspaper!! A lady that works for it happened to read my personal blog during my time in Kenya, (you can look at my post about "My Blogging Story" to read more about that adventure!) and she really liked it. She talked to the Editor and... He seemed interested. What a cool thing to put on a resume, right?
So who knows? It would be awesome practice & a great way to build my resume and college applications. (I'm planning on being an English/Literature/Creative Writing Major, so stuff like that looks really good to future professors.)
It's really cool to see things you do begin to take shape & know that they will be helpful to your future!! I think that's why it's so important to get a job doing something you love...
What about you? Did you, or have you done things with your writing or another creative outlets that can or have helped somewhere along the way? Let me know in the comments!! :)
