Yeah! Tomorrow I will announce the winners of the First Fabulous Poetry Competition for Children ……… one more sleep!
Just remember if you don’t win, feel sad for one second, and then carry on writing! That’s what I do. I have two books in the NZ Book Awards this year and I have ZERO expectation I will be shortlisted. My poems have never been shortlisted and I just don’t expect it. I am sad for a second and then I get back to what I love: WRITING! Because that is what is important to me.
So a big hug to all of those who sent me fabulous poems and didn’t make the book. Some of you I will post on the blog.
