I apologize in advance for my English, since it is not my first language and this post will be about writing and I don't want to end up being criticized for my writing skills based on this post.
I am an engineering student. I use my blog as an exhaust for bad energies and frustrations gathered in college. Some of my friends have given me positive feedback on my writing, even though it's just some nonsense I typed while being angry or sad or angry and sad. Also, I've written about half a dozen short stories, related or non-related to eachother
Recently (for the past year and a half, to be exact) I have actively taken up writing, forging various stories, just trying to get into writing. My enthusiasm sparked up madly a few weeks ago when a competition from a publishing house was declared. The price for the best novel is around $10000 (converted from my currency).
But the date for submission is October 1st, which leaves me 20 days to write a story good enough to be recognized by the judges. I know there are a lot of creative people on . I am sure some of you might help me achieve my goal (I am not an ambitious person, but this is something I want to do, for myself, and for my family; when I think about it). I am not asking much; I need rough sketches of various postapocalyptic scenarios, dialogues, problems, ideas. Having mentioned this, I should probably tell what I am writing about, and I will in first few comments, depending who comments first.
I need support from you guys. In my family, I only receive support for what I do from my mum. She got me into reading books in the first place.
I remember that guy who you helped with his video editing competition (I gave him a 'Like', too). Back then, I never thought of doing something like that, asking for help on (not that I didn't think I would receive any, but that I would never need it). Just now I see how he must have felt thinking about that competition, and entering it.
Thanks to anyone who participates, comments on this post, thumbs it up, thumbs it down, masturbates to this.
