On December 16 of this year, I submitted a writing piece entitled “When the Bells Ring” to the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. This was a very important moment for me because it allowed me to share my writing with a larger audience. This means that I am also able to experience more diversity.
My writing piece is in my eyes a challenge to traditional thinking. With the encouragement of the deadline, I was able create something that was abstract but still had structure. It was shaped around the emotions of what I perceived around me. Ever changing, I continued to edit and revise your piece. I looked for the tiniest of details that could have distracted or mislead the reader. Then after the long process, I felt that it was complete.
On December 16 of this year, I submitted a writing piece to be critiqued and judged. This will be the testament of the beginning my tedious career as a writer. Whether or not my piece is successful, I still have hope for the future.
