I know this might be really hard to believe, but I have this self-esteem issue. A major self-esteem issue in which I have problems admitting that stuff I do might be good.
Oh stop laughing, I do.
And yet, and this part I'm sure you know, I do crave validation. Like in things like blog competitions. And - I don't want to make her feel bad by saying this, but when a friend messaged me on Facebook recommending I enter the Orwell Prize, I quite simply had a panic attack.
I want to enter. Kinda. I constantly don't enter competitions that I think I should, out of certain knowledge I don't stand a chance, but I genuinely don't know how to sell myself. Even if selling myself involved nominating ten blog entries,that kind of thing freaks me out.
I have issues, I'll work on them. It's OK.
Meanwhile, would you like to help me out by telling me what entries of mine you remember as being quite good?
