I was a happy writer until I begun to doubt myself after entering a novel writing competition for amateurs. The prize was consulting with one of the best publishers of UK and chance of getting your novel published!
For an aspiring writer, it is a dream come true.
It was the first time I tried for anything like this. I remember I used to think of the story plot line while putting my newborn to sleep. Though I had sleepless nights, I was so excited to set my wings free for this venture. I had gave life to my characters and slowly they took form in front of my eyes. But life isn’t always fair or I can say it wasn’t my time..
The moment of truth and the silly me really expected a victorious end – left me disheartened.
I took the failure so badly that my mind closed in on me. I was incapable to even blog a line. I was way too critical to my thoughts, ideas that I just shut down. My better half kept nudging me to the right direction but I just refused to budge. It took me half a year to come out of my folly.
Now here I am daring to bare my vulnerability. I have learn’t my lesson that we should let neither success nor failure into our head.
So I decided to take things a step at a time.
I started out by releasing an ebook for children at Amazon a few days back.
Enrolled for a workshop that would kick out the remaining pessimistic me.
PS: Dedicated to those who are trying to reach somewhere in their life.
