I'm going to take back the times I said I never win anything. I entered this writing contest in uni and am one of the five people who's essay/story/article got nominated for the big prize of 500 euros to spend at Mediamarkt. There are also four other prizes, so it's a win-win situation. Na na na. Of course, if I do win first prize, my story gets published, as well.
I am however, not that hopeful. I wasn't necessarily that pleased with what I'd written, at all. But it was worth a shot, nonetheless. I mean, why not enter a competition by doing something you love, even if the subject or the result don't quite please. Trying never hurt a fly. On april second, I'll know whether I'm 5th, 4th, 3rd, 2nd or first. I'll keep you posted.
Have a good one!
