I am applying for a writer's award.
This is hard because you have to:
a) tell the judges how wonderful you are (and we all know that NZers are terrible at self-promotion)
and b) provide no more than ten pages of writing.
Arrghhh. What I've written is serious SFD stuff but I've spent the last two days trying to take the SFD to a higher level so as to impress the judges. Actually, that was kinda fun. Nothing like a deadline to MAKE YOU WRITE.
Don't know if it will help but ya gotta be in to win.
This award will mean so much so fingers crossed.
