I’m Submitting My Writing Again

It’s about time.

As a 21-year-old, I’m not a teenager anymore. So I’ve become ineligible for a lot of contests I’ve submitted to before. But I don’t feel like an adult either. I’m not a professional writer.

I have a ton of poems I’d like to get published somewhere. Hopefully, something works out.

In addition to my creative writing, I’ll try to write an essay every now and then for scholarships. I’m still a student. I graduate next year though, which kind of freaks me out.

I love but also hate not knowing what tomorrow will bring. Nevertheless, I’m excited to see what’s in store.

These days, I feel more motivated. I want to do more and do better.

If I want to have something to show the world, first I need to show up.

  1. I understand your feelings. They are similar to mine looking at 50 years of teaching as of this year and 30 years at university level if I make it to May 2019. I am getting so itchy and ready for change, I may retire (again!) and do some volunteer projects instead (something related to literacy). I have to decide by October, so the pressure is on. So, see, I know what it feels liked to be asked what are you going to do after graduation/retirement?
