Losing, Yet Winning


Even though there is a day left in the contest I think it's safe to talk:

It's no surprise when I didn't get picked. It's sad, but honestly, I'm used to it.

I know why. My story was short. And just by putting myself out there I'm more subconscious of it. With or without help I noticed the errors I had of tense and age.
Just by putting myself out there I found new friends.

With and without professional help I came out with an improved readership and story.

But... I'm still good. I'm entering another contest and I even got a free pass for it! I can't wait!

Love, Fida Islaih

Way to move forward undaunted! I've been part of so many different contest/blogfest/hops etc, and not one has been a waste. Every chance to get out there gives you the opportunity to improve, rub shoulders, and grow. Chin up. You're awesome. =)

Bravo for putting yourself out there. You can't improve unless you let go of your work and open your mind to feedback. You have a brilliant attitude!
