It started out as a challenge...
I didn't take it seriously, for me it's something I just have to get done with.
Unfortunately, I was thirty minutes late at the venue because it was moved without prior notice.
Upon arrival at the assigned room, I looked around and saw many unfamiliar faces with heads bent down writing spontaneously.
Will I be able to finish on time? I barely have thirty minutes to write.
I looked at the piece of paper with the topic for feature writing in my dialect.
It looks so easy. I choose Greece and featured Santorini.
Ideas just flow, I finished earlier than those who started first.
Mine was just for the sake of joining without any intention of winning.
It's my first time joining a writing contest, competing against fellow coaches.
On the awarding day, unexpectedly my name was called. I made it on the third place.
Not bad for a first time. My first attempt brought me victory.
