    I have always wanted to join writing contests such as these but I am not yet that confident when it comes to my writing style. I am looking at attending some writing workshops first and then maybe when I have the courage to finally do it. I will. It’s definitely in my bucket list.

      You’d be surprised at how many people feel just as you do Mitchelle, I’m a firm believer that when the time is right, you’ll get involved; before then you’d just be creating unnecessary stress for yourself 🙂

I'm always interested in what people think and love having a debate so why don't we have a chat :-)
