One afternoon, I received a phone call. It wasn't a number I recognized, but something told me to answer it anyway. I'm so glad I did because it was a call from my former college telling me that I placed in their creative writing contest and was invited to the ceremony in a few days (today)!
I wrote a piece for my creative writing class last semester and part of our grade was submitting it somewhere.
I chose the contest my school did for the entire state for not only college students but nonprofessional writers...
and out of 700 entities, I placed fourth! I was literally shocked.
I don't really consider myself a 'writer' because
A. I have terrible grammar skills
and B. My paper wasn't even really that good. It was just a paper I wrote for that course.
I think it's funny because I only got a B on the paper in my class... I kinda wanted my professor to be there so I could show her that I actually won an award for that B! Hehehe.
Anyway, if you're curious, my piece was a short story about the repercussions of hit-and-run accidents. (It was actually meant to be somewhat of a fable) It's titled "The Green Balloon".
Who knows, maybe I'll share it on here sometime!
After the ceremony, my brothers and I celebrated by eating at Red Robin.
It's been a great start to the weekend, that's for sure!
