Vote for me
Hullo readers. For the first time I am writing a post to ask readers to vote for me in a contest. The Indiblogger contest is for best short stories (Go here to vote) and I would love to win it. Usually I never write to solicit votes but being a writer at heart and the quality of my stories, I feel I deserve to win this one. In fact I really want to win this one. I know it isn’t completely fair to ask for votes, but I have realised that these contests are based on votes only and others ask for votes too. I mean, there is no panel of experts in that particular field who will judge. So I guess I have convinced myself that I need to ask for votes.
I have been writing stories for a long long time, and I cannot say it is a hobby with me. It is my life. I guess that is why I halted my career in Advertising and took to Journalism as that was the closest I could get to earning some money and writing at the same time. But my creative writing has gone on, some has got published, other work hasn’t. A novel is still in progress. Unfortunately blogging has stolen time away from my creative writing, but now I am trying to make more time. Old readers would have realised that I used to post everyday, but now I post just twice a week. But basically my career ambition is just one: Getting published. I know I will make it soon, I need to find more time to finish my novel.
I guess winning this contest will help my career in some way. That is what I imagine. I don’t know.
I hope it isn’t too much trouble for you to cast a vote for me! I have already approached quite a few regular readers my email, but there are others whom I haven’t written to. Only bloggers can vote.
If you are too busy to do so, I’ll understand.
